‘Lost’ star Andrews relishes ‘Wonderland’ change

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — Naveen Andrews says he welcomed the transition from a movie about Princess Diana to a TV series inspired by “Alice in Wonderland.”

The former “Lost” star plays the villainous Jafar in ABC’s fall series “Once Upon a Time in Wonderland.” In the upcoming big-screen “Diana,” starring Naomi Watts, Andrews plays love interest Dr. Hasnat Khan.

Andrews said that after “Diana” the “Wonderland” TV series offered a chance to do something completely different that, as he put it, isn’t “bound in space and time.” He spoke Sunday to the Television Critics Association.

“Once Upon a Time in Wonderland” stars Sophie Lowe as a young woman who escapes Victorian England down the fabled rabbit hole in search of adventure and love. It debuts Oct. 10.
