ABC's ONCE UPON A TIME Casts FROZEN's 'Elsa'!
TVGuide reports that Georgina Haig, best known for her role as Peter and Olivia's daughter, Etta on Fox's cult sci-fi series "Fringe", has been cast in the role of Elsa, Queen of Arendelle on ABC's ONCE UPON A TIME. The beloved character from the hit Disney film FROZEN was voiced by Broadway's Idina Menzel.
Fans of the show may recall that during the season finale, a hidden urn from Rumplestiltskin's past was transported to the future as Emma and Hook arrived home from their time-traveling journey. The urn actually contained Elsa! Questions remain as to why Elsa was locked up by Rumplestiltskin and whether or not she would return as a villain when Season 4 premieres this fall.
Explains executive producer Edwardd Kitsis following last year's finale, "She was never a villain." Agrees executive producer Adam Horowitz, "The thing we loved so much about that movie, among a million other things, was that Elsa was misunderstood."
As BWW reported last week, newcomer Elizabeth Lail has been cast in the role of Anna, the younger sister of Queen Elsa, while Scott Michael Foster will play Anna's beau Kristoff.
