“Once Upon a Time”
is the new ABC drama based on Grimm’s fairytales (among other fanciful
stories), where the characters from fairytale land are trapped in
Storybrooke, Maine. Josh Dallas stars as Prince Charming and he says there could be a lot of pressure that goes along with that role.

“Being Prince Charming feels like a lot of pressure,” Dallas laughs. “But it’s not something you can think about. You can’t think about that as an actor – ‘Oh, I’m playing Prince Charming.’ You’re playing a man. You’re playing a guy who’s got problems, hopes, dreams.”

“It will be full of magic, it will be full of wonder, it will be full of drama,” Dallas says of the show. “It will be full of everything that goes into great storytelling and great stories. Epic stories. ‘Once Upon a Time’ will have that.”

“Once Upon a Time” premieres Sunday, Oct. 23 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
