'Once Upon A Time': Marilyn Manson To Voice Shadow In Season 3 Neverland Arc


"Once Upon a Time" is about to get even creepier, with rocker Marilyn Manson set to lend his voice to the ominous Shadow, the demonic entity that steals souls and kidnaps children for Peter Pan.

Rolling Stone first broke the news, with creators Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis telling the magazine, "We've always been enormous fans of Marilyn Manson. We wanted to cast someone with the vocal ability to make our skin crawl."

Described as "a character whose voice will give life to the very essence of Neverland," Manson's Shadow will reportedly make his debut in the eighth episode of Season 3, expected to air mid-November.

"Once Upon a Time" airs Sundays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
