Playing morally grey characters isn’t a new venture for Naveen Andrews, who fans know well from his six-year stint as “Sayid Jarrah” on the hit television series LOST. But in his newest role as Jafar in Once Upon A Time in Wonderland, Andrews may get to take that “morally grey” compass and explore it in a way that we haven’t yet seen.
“He does have a rather dark and twisted agenda that will affect every character on the show,” Andrews teased at Comic Con, before going on to reveal one of the reasons behind his return to television with Wonderland. “Great acting, great performances. In the end, it’s about writing and acting.”

Once Upon A Time in Wonderland premieres Thursday, Oct. 10 at 8/7c on ABC.
