Because mermaids need love too!
And rowing into the casting throne is Gil McKinney — the ER and Friday Night Lights vet who will now woo Ariel in Season 3 of Once Upon A Time.
You can expect Gil to be the complimentary partner to Joanna Garcia's little mermaid. Following the announcement of her casting, we were begging and hoping we'd soon see news of a John Stamos-like being cast as her fair prince.
And sure enough, here he is!!
Both characters will debut in the upcoming season's sixth episode, where adventure and romance will surely splash us from the screen!!
Season 3 debuts September 29 at 8/7c on ABC!
