Entertainment Weekly has the first look at Greg Germann’s Hades on Once Upon a Time. It looks like they are keeping closer to the Disney version of Hades with the fiery blue hair. Germann will make his debut in the 100th episode where show’s cast will journey to the underworld to rescue Hook (Colin O’Donoghue).
Here’s what Germann had to say on playing Hades:
“Hades is such a fun, endlessly creative challenge. Anything goes. The creators bring him to life on the page with the same out-of-the-box unpredictability that they bring to the rest of the show. They strike the perfect balance between keeping things grounded and letting things fly — sometimes literally.”
EP Edward Kitsis also had some insight into Hades:
“Hades is a very dangerous fellow, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun being the Devil.”
Kitsis went on to warn that it might not be so easy getting out of the underworld. Everyone’s past will come back to haunt them with familiar faces like Cora (Barbara Hershey), Peter Pan (Robbie Kay), and Cruella de Vill (Victoria Smurfit) making appearances.
