DEAR STACY: I have heard that there are big cast changes on "Once Upon a Time." Can you tell who is really leaving the show? — Cynthia-W

DEAR CYNTHIA-W: Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas, a.k.a. Snow White and Prince Charming (who met on the show and are married in real life) have left, along with Jennifer Morrison, whom viewers know as their series daughter, Emma Swan. Also gone are Jared S. Gilmore, who has played precocious child Henry from the start, Rebecca Mader (Wicked Witch Zelena) and Emilie de Ravin (Belle). Still aboard are Lana Parrilla (Regina/Evil Queen), Robert Carlyle (Gold/Rumplestiltskin) and Colin O'Donoghue (Killian/Hook). As seen on the season six finale, Andrew J. West will be playing the grownup Henry Mills in future episodes, along with Allison Fernandez as Lucy.

DEAR STACY: We saw Burt Ward at the "Batman" signal lighting in Los Angeles. What is he up to nowadays? — Angela T., Torrance, California

DEAR ANGELA: The 71-year-old, who is still known as Robin, the Boy Wonder from the 1960s "Batman" TV series, lent his voice to last year's "Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders" animated feature that also featured the voice of his long-time friend, the late Adam West, in the title role, along with Julie Newmar's vocals as Catwoman. Robin has certainly been the professional touchstone of Ward's life, as his Comic Con and TV appearances and his autobiographical book, "Boy Wonder: My Life in Tights," attest. Along the way he has also had a special effects company, produced a line of dog food and, with fourth wife Tracy Posner Ward, been active in advocacy on behalf of large breed dogs. They founded a charity called Gentle Giants Rescue and Adoptions. Ward is also the father of two grown-up daughters.

DEAR STACY: Is it true that Kevin Jonas has cancer? — MOC18

DEAR MOC18: Kevin Jonas Sr., father of the famous Jonas Brothers (including the 29-year-old Kevin Jr.) has been battling colon cancer since his diagnosis in March. He's undergone surgery and chemotherapy and at last word the prognosis is good.

DEAR STACY: I'd like to know whatever became of the very funny and talented Audra Lindley. — Jane N., Canton, Ohio

DEAR JANE: The Broadway and television ("Three's Company") actress passed away in 1997 due to complications from leukemia. She was 79, and still doing recurring roles on two series ("Cybill" and "Nothing Sacred") the same year she died.
