Small Snippet from the After Elton interview with Sebastian Stan where he talks Once Upon A Time
AE: Shifting gears to Once Upon A Time, as an actor how do you approach the fantasy element of it? How do you maintain a realness when the world is not necessarily real?
SS: I think whether the character exists on the moon or, I don’t know, you just try to play the truth of it and the authenticity of it. What I try to do and use as a guide or a map is what is very clear in the script. The man wanted to be reunited with his daughter, that was very clear, and he would do anything that he could to do that, and he thought the Emma Swan character [played by Jennifer Morrison, who Stan reportedly is dating] was going to be the person to bring him back to do that. Whether it was magic or any of the other words, that’s what comes out of his mouth. What he’s saying over and over again…you just pay attention to what these characters want and not the green screen.
AE: You’re shooting more for season 2, can we expect the next chapter of the Mad Hatter’s story, especially now that Storybrooke has changed?
SS: There will be. I think he’ll be just as much affected by everything, but the desire for him has not changed. He still wants that reunion with the daughter. Also, you have to remember, he’s known all along before everybody else that this was going to happen, so this is not a big surprise to him. From where he comes from, it’s like ‘Oh, good. Now everybody is going to see what I’ve been talking about over and over again, but no one was listening to me.” He’s seen all this coming.
