Richard Schiff spoiled to EW about his upcoming guest appearance on ABC’s new hit drama, Once Upon A Time. After the show returns in January, Schiff’s character, King Leopold of the Enchanted Forrest, will be in an “intricate’ storyline between himself, Snow and the Queen. Schiff is slated to appear in the 11th episode.

“I don’t think I’ve ever played a king before, except in my own bedroom,” Schiff jokes. “He certainly seems to be a happy guy at first glances, They wrote him as a happy-go-lucky guy. [He doesn't] desire anything. But at one point he says, ‘I have a prosperous kingdom, a beautiful daughter, and a lovely Queen,’ and I decided to make the Queen line not as excited as the other two items on that list. In other words, he’s unhappy and I don’t think people are ignorant [to that] … So there’s a little bit of darkness underneath him.”
