Downton Abbey's Lesley Nicol will guest-star on Once Upon a Time later this season, according to tweets between her and Once's Josh Dallas. (He plays Charming.) EW says Mrs. Patmore will be playing someone with a "'special connection' to the Snow White family," but the whole show is pretty much special connections to the Snow White family. It's 85 percent special connections to the Snow White family and 15 percent utterances of the phrase "true love."
