Once‘s edgy, mythology based spin off Once Upon A Time in Wonderland not only deals with hookah smoking caterpillars and magical “drink me” bottles. Alice (Sophie Lowe) also has adventures that lead her into a relationship with Cyrus (Peter Gadiot), Wonderland’s mysterious genie. As the two connect throughout the course of the pilot, it seems like an almost perfectly destined relationship…sort of.
“I think they’re kindred spirits who have gone through different things but that maybe mean the same thing when it comes to people not believing them in some way,” Gadiot shares, teasing what we might see of Alice and Cyrus as the series progresses. Watch below for more from the actors, including what they think of the possibility of a Once crossover, and catch the series premiere of Once Upon A Time In Wonderland on Thursday, Oct. 10 at 8/7c on ABC.
