Sebastian Stan as The Mad Hatter
|Sebastian Stan as The Mad Hatter|
The original character of Jefferson/Mad Hatter in "Once Upon a Time" was played by Sebastian Stan.
Sometimes Stan played The Mad Hatter, sometimes Jefferson, and usually both within the same episode. The six episodes, evenly divided between seasons 1 and 2 of "Once Upon a Time," were:
- An Apple Red as Blood (6 May 2012) - Jefferson
- A Land Without Magic (13 May 2012) - Jefferson
- We Are Both (7 October 2012) - The Mad Hatter / Jefferson
- Lady of the Lake (14 October 2012) - The Mad Hatter / Jefferson
There are plans afoot by ABC to create a spinoff series, or perhaps just escalate his character within the original "Once Upon a Time" show. Nothing is definite yet, and most likely won't be until the second season is pretty much done. One thing is pretty sure, though: whoever plays The Mad Hatter in the future, it likely won't be Sebastian Stan, because he has feature film commitments such as "Captain America: The First Avenger" (2014) that will keep him busy.
Here are some photos of his character, as played by Sebastian Stan:
