Sarah Bolger Joins Cast of ABC's ONCE UPON A TIME
As first reported on TVLine.com, Sarah Bolger has joined the cast of the ABC drama ONCE UPON A TIME. The Irish actress will appear as Princess Aurora in a multi-episode arc on the show.
The 21-year-old was featured in the 2002 film In America, for which she received an Independent Spirit Award nomination. She is best known for her role as Princess / Lady Mary Tudor on Showtime's The Tudors and for her role as Mallory Grace in The Spiderwick Chronicles.
ONCE UPON A TIME was the network's highest-rated freshman drama series last season. The show will return this fall will all-new episodes on Sundays at 8/7c on ABC.
On Once Upon a Time, Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison, "House") knows how to take care of herself. She's a 28-year-old bail bondsperson who's been on her own ever since she was abandoned as a baby. But when Henry (JarEd Gilmore, "Mad Men") -- the son she gave up years ago -- finds her, everything changes. Henry is now 10 years old and in desperate need of Emma's help. He believes that Emma actually comes from an alternate world, and that she's Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin, "Big Love") and Prince Charming's (Josh Dallas) missing daughter. According to his book of fairytales, they sent her away to protect her from the Evil Queen's (Lana Parrilla) curse, which trapped the characters of fairytale world forever, frozen in time, and brought them into our modern world.
Of course Emma doesn't believe a word, but when she brings Henry back to Storybrooke, she finds herself drawn to this unusual boy and his strange New England town. Concerned for him, she decides to stay for a while, but she soon suspects that Storybrooke is more than it seems. It's a place where magic has been forgotten -- but is still powerfully close -- where fairytale characters are alive, even though they don't remember who they once were, and where the Evil Queen, known as Regina, is now Henry's foster mother.
In order to understand where the fairytale world's former inhabitants came from, and what ultimately led to the Evil Queen's wrath, you'll need a glimpse into their previous lives to learn their origins. But it might just turn everything you've ever believed about these characters upside-down.
Meanwhile, the epic battle for the future of all worlds is about to begin. For good to win, Emma will have to accept her destiny and fight like hell.
