‘Once Upon a Time’ season 4: Sean Maguire on Robin Hood, Patrick Fischler talks ‘Author’

Once Upon a Time fans are finally getting satisfaction with the new Robin Hood storyline and the long-awaited introduction of the Author. Now Sean Maguire’s Hood is in NYC with his wife Marian (Christie Laing) and son Roland (Raphael Alejandro), not in Storybrooke where he “should be” and Maguire is excited for fans to learn more.

“This episode is all about the origin of Robin. That would be the best way to describe it,” Maguire tells E! News. “It’s interesting because it picks up from where we left off with Robin and Marian and Roland, but it also goes back into his past and we’ll find out about how he became the outlaw Robin Hood.”

Sean Maguire as Robin Hood Once Upon a Time season 4Maguire is excited for fans to finally learn about Robin’s past.

“It’s exciting because I had questions about the character too, and I think this episode doesn’t answer everything, but it does answer a lot of things that we’ve been wondering about, like how he became who he is today,” Maguire says. “How did he evolve from Robin of Locksley to Robin Hood? What series of events brought that to pass? That’s something that we’ll be exploring on Sunday. Plus, there’s Oz, there’s Storybrooke, there’s New York, old characters coming back like the Sheriff of Nottingham [Will Traval], so it’s going to be a really great episode.”

Then there’s Patrick Fischler, The “Author,” but as it turns out, wasn’t a single person , but a host of people tasked with keeping tabs on the story, and this Author was simply the latest in the line of people who had taken on the job.

Fischler spoke with The Hollywood Reporter about joining the ABC series.

“The race right now is who’s going to get to him first. On Sunday, we will find more out about that. There are pictures out that have me talking with Bobby Carlyle (Rumple), so you do know he and I interact. Cruella (Victoria Smurfit) and the Author have a bit of a history. Her backstory is the following Sunday, and that is my favorite episode I’ve done on the show, and one of my favorite episodes of TV I’ve ever done — and I’ve done a lot of TV!”

He revealed that he didn’t know the whole storyline when he joined the show and enlightens fans on the recent events.

“He’s been trapped in the book for a long time. He knows Snow (Ginnifer Goodwin) and Charming (Josh Dallas), but he doesn’t know what they want with him. He’s definitely someone who wants what’s best for himself, like a lot of us do, so he wants to see what’s out there. In that moment, he popped out of there, and the best thing is to get out of there and figure out, ‘How am I going to handle this?’ As opposed to, ‘What are we going to do next with whomever these people are?’ He doesn’t know exactly who they are, so he has to get out of there, and figure it out himself.”
