Jorge Garcia may possibly have a mini “Lost” reunion with former castmate Emilie De Ravin when he drops into “Once Upon a Time” this fall to take on the role of “The Giant.” More specific information isn’t available at this time, according to TV Guide.com, but the speculation is that the character will appear in an episode, featuring a fractured fairytale version of “Jack and the Beanstalk.”
As dedicated fans of the series will recall, in “The Return” episode of season one, the Blue Fairy gave a magic bean to Baelfire (Dylan Schmid), Rumplestiltskin’s son, telling him it would take him to a “land without magic.” Could he possibly be our Jack?
As XfinityTV.com previously reported, two other new fairytale characters will have their stories told in the second season of “Once Upon a Time:” Mulan and Aurora.
“We think they come into the show in a very surprising and unique way,” executive producer Edward Kitsis told XfinityTV. “Because of that, we don’t want to talk much about it. We are very excited because like everything we have done, we are not interested in re-telling or showing you the version that you are used to, so we think we have great spins on both characters. What we love is how they will interact with the people we already know and love.”
Garcia has become a popular go-to actor since “Lost” wrapped, appearing in guest star roles on “How I Met Your Mother,” “Fringe” and as a series regular on the short-lived “Mr. Sunshine” and “Alcatraz.”
