Casting for Neverland's Lost Boys begun for Once Upon a Time season 3 and one name has already leaked.
British actor Robbie Kay, 17, will be on the new season of Once Upon a Time as one of the Lost Boys, according to a Tuesday report by TVLine. Kay will be appearing in a recurring role in the third season and is the first actor cast among the Lost Boys.
Though Enstars previously reported that the producers were looking to cast Rufio, the leader of the Lost Boys, Kay will not be playing the group's mischievous leader. Kay is best known for playing Pinocchio in the 2008 miniseries of the same name and has played roles in such films as Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and Hannibal Rising.
Additionally, David Anders, who has played Dr. Whale/Victor Frankenstein in a recurring role in the show's first two seasons, confirmed that he would be returning for season 3. Anders told The Daily Quirk in a report published Tuesday that he would be back for season 3 but he would not be appearing in the premiere episode.
Dr. Whale last appeared in Second Star to the Right, the second-to-last episode of season 2. In the episode he was last seen escaping from the clutches of Mr. Gold (Robert Carlyle) after getting into a fight with him.
In other Once Upon a Time news, ABC announced the premiere date for the new season on Tuesday. The third season of Once Upon a Time will premiere on Sunday, Sept. 29 at 8 p.m. and is set to air in that timeslot throughout the 2013-2014 TV season.
As Enstars previously reported, the first episode of season 3 will be called The Heart of the Truest Believer.
