Once Upon A Time is set to make Michael Raymond-James a series regular for Season 3, TVLine has learned exclusively.
Series co-creator Adam Horowitz first shared the news with us at ABC’s Upfront party on Tuesday evening.
After making his Once debut as Emma’s ex/Henry’s father Neal Cassidy aka Baelfire in the Emma-centric episode “Tallahassee,” Raymond-James heavily recurred in the last string of Season 2 episodes, as Rumple discovered his son in New York City and circumstances then led them back to Storybrooke.
When last seen, Neal had been shot by Tamara, fallen through a portal and ultimately washed ashore in The Fairytale Land That Is, where he was tended to by Aurora, Mulan and Phillip.
