‘Once Upon’: How Robert Carlyle created Rumpelstiltskin | Inside TV | EW.com
Cool interview with Once Upon a Time’s Robert Carlyle linked below! It reveals Rumpelstiltskin’s true age (300), and why his performance as Mr. Gold is so different.
Also – interesting tidbit I read somewhere: Mr. Gold didn’t know his real identity until Emma told him her name in the pilot. That’s why it was so important that he got the name of the baby from Snow.
