Stephen Lord Joins ONCE UPON A TIME as Rumplestiltskin's Father

ONCE UPON A TIME will soon get to the bottom of Rumplestiltskin's daddy issues.

According to TV Guide, ABC's fairy tale drama will welcome British actor Stephen Lord to its cast for a single episode, in which he will take on the role of The Dark One's father. Lord will appear in a flashback on the Nov. 17 episode.

As per the report, audiences have "learned that the father of a young Rumplestiltskin (Robert Carlyle) was branded a coward, so Rumple was desperate to prove he wouldn't follow in dear old dad's footsteps. But when he was drafted to fight in the ogre war, a seer prophesized that he would die in battle, so Rumple intentionally injured himself to sidestep the prophecy. Unfortunately, that also led him to also be branded a coward."

ONCE UPON A TIME stars Ginnifer Goodwin as Snow White/Mary Margaret, Jennifer Morrison as Emma Swan, Lana Parrilla as the Evil Queen/Regina, Josh Dallas as Prince Charming/David, Emilie de Ravin as Belle, Colin O'Donoghue as Hook, Michael Raymond-James as Baelfire/Neal Cassidy, Jared S. Gilmore as Henry Mills and Robert Carlyle as Rumplestiltskin/Mr. Gold.

ONCE UPON A TIME airs Sundays, 8:00-9:00 p.m., ET on ABC.
