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.
