Once Upon A Time producers have cast a single father and son duo to appear in episode 17 this season. John Pyper-Ferguson has been tapped for a large guest star role on the fantastical ABC series. Ferguson's character, Ben, is a "widower who wants nothing more than to help his young son heal from the loss of his mother.”
Ben's son, Owen, will be played by 1600 Penn regular, Benjamin Stockham. Owen is described as precocious and strong-willed and isn't afraid to speak his mind. He puts on a facade to deal with his mother's death, but a free-spirit lies beneath.
