‘Once Upon A Time’ Casting News
The character, who will appear on a recurring basis, is described as “a well-bred prince with a serious chip on his shoulder,” a young man with a burning desire to be king, TVLine notes.
Tyler Jacob Moore, 31, will make his first appearance in episode three of season four.
And if you haven’t seen Frozen yet, stop reading — mild spoilers ahead! (SPOILER ALERT!) In the Disney movie, Hans tricked Anna into falling in love with him in an attempt to take over Arendelle. He was later imprisoned on a ship heading back to the southern isles after being banished by Elsa.
Once Upon a Time’s Frozen storyline will reportedly pick up after the events of the movie, E! News reports, so it’ll be interesting to see how Hans returns.
Tyler Jacob Moore has also appeared in Revenge and GCB.
