According to TVLine, two new Disney characters will be heading to Once Upon a Time. Jonathan Whitesell and Kacey Rohl were tapped to play Hercules and Meg, and they will make their debut in the 13th episode, “Labor of Love.”
As of now, both Whitesell and Rohl have only been confirmed for one episode. In the same article, TVLine also reported that Whitesell's version of Hercules will be “a dashing, strapping young man,” who is “single-minded in his pursuit of his destiny: to be the greatest hero who ever lived. All that changes however, when he falls in love with a beautiful princess.”
For her part, Meg was described as a “plucky, 18-year-old female adventurer with a sly sense of humor and a tough, no-nonsense spirit. And though she has spent a long time languishing in a dungeon, her inner spark has not burned out. Rather, it is waiting for the right opportunity to shine brightly again.”
Whitesell has previously appeared on TV shows like iZombie and The 100. He will also star in FOX's forthcoming revival of The X-Files. Similarly, Rohl found success on several TV shows, including Hannibal, Fringe, Supernatural, and The Killing. To feed your curiosity about these two actors, here are a few entertaining Instagram pictures of Whitesell and Rohl.
Adam Horowitz, who is the executive producer and co-creator of Once Upon a Time, also confirmed that Bailee Madison will reprise her role as Young Snow White in the same episode. Madison's last appearance on the show was back in March 2013.
