Once Upon A Time In Wonderland is a spin-off from the ABC series Once Upon A Time, and it will be airing Thursdays at 8 this Fall. Continuing our string of press tour interviews with the cast and producers, today we’re sharing our brief chat with Michael Socha, who plays the “Knave of Hearts.” Fans of the U.K. version of Being Human might recognize the actor from three series of the show.
Let’s get started, eh? Our questions for Mr. Socha are posted in bold; his answers are not.
For those who have not yet seen the trailers, how do the Knave and Alice first come across each other in this series?
The Knave breaks Alice out of the mental institution. It’s like a brotherly-sisterly, look out for each other role. The Knave is quite a lonely character. He doesn’t want to go back to Wonderland, but he will do it, and only for Alice. I think the only person he gives a sh*t about is Alice.
How much have you been told about their backstory, which gave them that kind of a relationship?
I can’t wait to find out. I’ve heard a little bit. Apparently Alice gets the Knave back his heart. I can’t wait to read the story as to where he lost his heart. I’m still waiting.
Is there a possibility that we will see any kind of triangle between the Knave, Alice, and Cyrus the genie?
What, like a love triangle? Absolutely not! No. It’s not like that between the Knave and Alice. There’s no sexual [stuff] going on at all.
If you could cross over with any character from the Once Upon A Time parent show, which one would you like to meet and why?
Bobby [Carlyle]. Get Bobby over. Rumpelstiltskin. Get him involved.
Once Upon A Time In Wonderland premieres Thursday, October 10 on ABC. Come talk about the show on our forum!
