Benjamin Stockham to Play Orphaned Child on Once Upon a Time

at . Comments

Benjamin Stockham has signed on for Once Upon a Time Season 2.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the young actor (below on 1600 Penn) will appear on Episode 17 as a child named Owen.

Look for the character to come across as free-spirited and strong-willed… yet actually be quite vulnerable and downtrodden in secretly dealing with the death of his mother.

As is the case with any piece of Once Upon a Time casting news, go ahead and play the guessing game, readers. Which fairytale character might Owen or his mother represent?

The series, meanwhile, takes the next two Sundays off and returns with "Tiny" on February 10. It will feature Cassidy Freeman as Jack.

Bambi. He's Bambi.


As far as we've seen, the Curse brought over people who had set foot in the Enchanted Forest and/or had direct contact with Rumple. I don't think we've seen people yet who were brought over from other lands that didn't encounter those two things.


I have this feeling that Rumple's son will be Peter Pan and maybe Owen is a lost boy! It would be a neat twist. :) Especially considering Peter Pan was my all time favorite movie!


well since we know that the curse apparently took characters from different realms, not only from the fairytale world (in comes Dr. Frankenstein), then maybe he is one of the lost boys from Neverland, or even Peter Pan(but i doubt it).


Since, Neverland was mentioned I think it would be Peter Pan only as Neverland will be the most suitable location for further storytelling. Also this might be to support Henry's statement reg multiple lands being affected.
