A giant relief for Garcia to play the bad guy
and Alcatraz favourite Jorge Garcia (pictured) guest plays a murderous giant in Tuesday’s episode of the continuing US fantasy drama Once Upon a Time. ‘‘It was a joy,’’ he says of the role which reunited him with creators Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz who wrote several Hurley-centric episodes of Lost. ‘‘It was exactly the kind of stuff I was looking forward to getting to do after having played the nicest guy on the island for so long. To play guys who . . . can be dangerous was a lot of fun.’’ The episode sees Emma (Jennifer Morrison) trek up a beanstalk to steal a compass from the giant. She hopes it will help return her and Mary Margaret (Ginnfer Goodwin) to Storybrooke.
