Along with Once Upon a Time, Gabe Khouth’s other credits include an episode of The CW’s one-season drama Life Sentence, which starred Lucy Hale. Khouth played Mr. Stoller. He also had a single-episode appearance on the second season of Netflix’s A Series of Unfortunate Events adaptation as Lou.

The Canadian native got his start in acting nearly thirty years ago in 1989 with a guest role on the TV series Booker. He followed that up with an episode of the ensemble cop drama, 21 Jump Street in 1990. Gabe Khouth worked steadily from that point on with those 2018 credits mentioned above being some of the latest listed.
