Fans are eagerly awaiting the characters from the Oscar-winning box-office hit Frozen to join Once Upon a Time for the fourth season of the fairy-tale favorite.
And we don’t have to wait much longer because yet another Frozen character has been cast, and this time it’s Prince Hans, who will be played by Shameless actor Tyler Jacob Moore, E! News reports.
In Season 4, the Frozen story line is set to pick up after the events from the hit film, and Moore will be joining the cast as Anna’s former love and main antagonist who tricked Anna into loving him so he could attempt to get his greedy paws on Arendelle. Moore’s character has been described as having a serious chip on his shoulder and a burning desire to be king.
Prince Hans will make his OUAT debut in the third episode of the season and will appear on a recurring basis. Moore will be joining TV’s hottest new couple, Greek’s Scott Michael Foster as Kristoff and newbie Elizabeth Lail, who will play the character of Anna. Fringe‘s Georgina Haig is set to play Queen Elsa of Arendelle.
But it’s not just Prince Hans who has been cast. John Rhys-Davies will be lending his voice to rock troll Pabbie, executive producer Adam Horowitz announced via Twitter on Monday.

“We’re thrilled to welcome John Rhys-Davies to the #OnceUponATime family as the voice of everyone’s favorite rock troll — Pabbie! #ThisFall!” Horowitz tweeted.
Horowitz told The Hollywood Reporter in May that they were “honored” to incorporate the Frozen universe into Once Upon a Time.
“We fell in love with [the movie] when it came out last year like everyone did, and we want to do our best to do it justice,” he said at the time.
Once Upon a Time returns on Sunday, Sept. 28, on ABC.
