Once Upon a Time Season 6 Casting News
Once Upon a Time hit Comic-Con for a special panel dedicated to the ABC show, and during the proceedings, fans got their first glimpse of Season 6.
Get ready for some Arabian Nights, because Aladdin and Jafar will be joining season 6! Deniz Akdeniz (Graceland) will play street rat turned Prince Ali, Aladdin, while Oded Fehr (Covert Affairs) will portray Royal Vizier and evil sorcerer Jafar. In the clip showed to the audience, Jafar descends down on a flying carpet to taunt Aladdin. See for yourself in the clip below!
The pair join the previously announced additions of Giles Matthey as Morpheus and Craig Horner as the Count of Monte Cristo.
Karen David has also been cast as Princess Jasmine (Galavant), according to Deadline. The main cast of Aladdin characters is in place.
The other latest myths and legends to cast a spell on the Storybrooke storybook for Season 6 of Once Upon a Time—courtesy of Mr. Hyde, who brought with him a whirlwind of characters and curiosities from the Land of Untold Stories—will be Sinbad and Scheherazade.
One Thousand and One Nights (the Middle Eastern answer to fairy tales) was conjured by the brazen Scheherazade to save herself. Legend has it the sacrificial bride’s execution is put off after she tells the infidelity-phobic king, who murders his wives almost as soon as he marries them, an unfinished story on their wedding night. He is intrigued enough that he needs to know what happens next for a thousand more nights. We can only wonder whether any djinn will materialize from rubbing a lamp, but we do know ABC is seeking a Middle Eastern/Arabic actress (could it be Azita Ghanizada from Alphas?) to play the fearless storyteller.
Sinbad is a roguish sailor whose fantastical voyages in One Thousand and One Nights have him encountering serpents, cannibals, endless diamonds, monstrous birds of prey and mer-horses that breathe underwater. Our crystal ball isn’t telling us exactly which of his adventures are in the pages of Storybrooke—only that his power lies in kindness, but his confidence in his ability to lead his people is waning like the tide. What we do know is that the network is diamond-mining for a thirtysomething actor of Middle Eastern/Arabic or North African descent (possibly Haaz Sleiman of Covert Affairs and Nurse Jackie?) to play the seafaring hero.
Get ready for a magic carpet ride when Sinbad and Scheherezade’s adventures unfold this fall.
