Once Upon a Time fans will soon meet the man behind Rumplestiltskin.
TV Guide confirms that British actor Stephen Lord (Shameless) will guest star on Once Upon a Time Season 3 as the father of a young Rumplestiltskin, the man whose cowardice initially inspired his son to go in the opposite direction… only for Rumplestiltskin to end up just like dead old dad when he faked an injury to avoid fighting in war.
Look for Lord to appear in flashbacks on the November 17th installment of this ABC drama and for viewers to delve even deeper into his troubled father/son relationship.
Once Upon a Time airs Sundays at 8/7c on ABC
