You’ve also appeared in another big primetime television series, Fringe, which airs on FOX. Has that aired yet?

So tell me what a day on the set of Once Upon A Time is like.

Okay. I know he's known as a great improvisational actor and…
Were you able to do a lot of improvising things with him for your scenes?
Yes. Actually, yeah.
I have a question about Rumplestiltskin, since he’s your dad on the show. Do you think he's a bad guy or a good guy?
I think he's kind of in the middle. I think there's something like overtaking him, like some sort of evil that's kind of overtaking him. I think sometimes he sort of realizes...
