ABC’s ONCE UPON A TIME has cast two more characters for its “Frozen” storyline: John Rhys-Davies and Tyler Jacob Moore. A number of weeks ago, the fantasy series announced it would be doing a “Frozen” crossover arc, featuring characters Elsa, Anna and Kristoff from the blockbuster. So far, the series has cast Georgina Haig as Queen Elsa, Elizabeth Lail as Anna and Scott Michael Foster as Kristoff. Now, Rhys-Davies has been cast as rock troll Pabbie, while Moore will play Prince Hans.
Rhys-Davies got his big break way back in the day playing Sallah in “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” going on to reprise his role for “Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade.” A bit more recently, Rhys-Davies played Gimli in “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.” As for TV, he has appeared in various series including “Legend of the Seeker,” “Sliders,” and “Psych.” Moore is no stranger to TV, either, having appeared in “Shameless,” “Revenge,” and dramedy “GCB.”
