The news broke when “OUAT” star Josh Dallas tweeted Wednesday (Jan. 2), “As a Huge #DowntonAbbey Fan I’m very excited @lesley_nicol is coming to #OnceUponATime! #dontgeekout #becool #getyourtweetsright.”
Nicol responded, “@joshdallas Hi there – I am looking forward to it!! See you all soon.”
But who will “Downton’s” Mrs. Patmore play when she comes to Storybrooke and/or Fairytale Land? ABC tells Zap2it Nicol’s character “has a special connection to the Snow White family.”
That doesn’t necessarily mean she’s a character from the Snow White story, however. On “OUAT,” the writers love a good character mash-up. So who would be your ideal character for Nicol? We’d love to see the writers delve into the L. Frank Baum world — perhaps Mrs. Patmore moonlights as a wicked witch?
