Naveen Andrews is coming back to U.S. television

Sayid in 6x10 The Package

Sayid in LOST episode 6×10 (The Package)

Naveen Andrews (Sayid on LOST) will be playing a villain on the new TV show Once Upon a Time in Wonderland, which is a spin-off of the show Once Upon a Time, now entering its third season.

Once Upon a Time has many ties with LOST. Naveen is the last in a long line of LOST alumni to appear on a Once show. LOST actors in the cast of the original Once are Emilie de Ravin (Claire on LOST, now playing a major role in Once as Belle), Jorge Garcia (Hurley on LOST, has an occasional guest role as a giant on Once), Lana Parrilla (has a starring role in Once as Regina, the Evil Queen / had a guest role in LOST playing an Other named Greta in two Season 3 episodes — she was one of the two women who tied up Charlie in the underwater Looking Glass station), and Alan Dale (Charles Widmore on LOST, has a recurring guest role as King George on Once).

In addition, the creators of Once and Once:Wonderland were writers on LOST, and Once often tosses in LOST references to amuse people who are fans of both shows. I wonder if Once:Wonderland will do the same.

This is going to be the first time that Naveen will have a role on U.S. television in a television show produced in the United States since he played Sayid. His character on Once:Wonderland will be Jafar, the villain in Disney’s Alladin, and he’ll be appearing on Wonderland from the first episode, which airs on Thursday, October 10 at 8 p.m.

  1. I have been watching Naveen in the scifi channel series Sinbad. I’m in the USA.

    • Sinbad is a British show, produced by Sky1, but you’re right, it’s being shown in the U.S. on Syfy. I’ll change my post to try to make that clearer.

      P.S. If you see this comment … I never saw Sinbad. What do you think? Do you like it? Recommend it?
