Lesley Nicol, best known as the cook Mrs. Patmore on the hit British series 'Downtown Abbey,' is joining the cast of ABC's 'Once Upon a Time.'
Josh Dallas ('Once's Prince Charming) tweeted "As a Huge #DowntonAbbey Fan I’m very excited @lesley_nicol is coming to #OnceUponATime!" Nicol has had several roles in British productions leading up to 'Downtown Abbey,' including appearances on the series 'The Bill,' 'Heartbeat' and 'Doctors.'
But who will Nicol be playing on 'Once Upon a Time?' Given that the main characters on the ABC drama are all pulled from fairy tale lore, the casting on this particular series gets to be a little more fun. Which phantasmagoric character will Nicol bring to life?
All that has been revealed to this point is that the character Nicol will be playing has a "special connection" to the Snow White family. Place your best guess below.
Nicol will be returning for the fourth season of 'Downtown Abbey' later this year. \
