SpoilerTV reports that Once Upon a Time is casting for the roles of Rufio and Thief, characters that are reportedly set to appear in the Season 3 premiere and recur in several episodes.

Rufio, who is presumably inspired by the Lost Boy with the same name in classic flick Hook, is a "mischievous and devious Lost Boy" in his teens. The thief, meanwhile, is a character in his 30s who "steals magic from Rumpelstiltskin in order to save someone he loves."

They both sound interesting to us! We're particularly curious if and how the thief character fits into the Neverland story.

Do these new characters sound exciting to you? Sound off in the comments below.
