Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Georgina Haig is all set to play the role of Elsa of “Frozen” in the new season of ABC’s hit fairy tale drama series “Once Upon A Time,” multiple sources affirm Thursday.
The show’s upcoming season is said to show Elsa’s character as misunderstood rather than outright villainous, but nothing is quite clear cut just yet. The show’s “Frozen” arc picks up after what happened in the Disney movie.
Show creator Adam Horowitz said in an interview with TV Guide in May, “We truly want to honor the character that everybody has fallen in love with so quickly. When you see how our interpretation of her and what we do with her, you will see that’s exactly what we’re trying to do.”
The 28-year-old Aussie actress is best known for her roles as Etta Bishop in the sci-fi television series “Fringe,” and is currently seen on CBS’ crime drama series “Reckless” as Lee Ann Marcus.
Haig joins previously announced season four cast Scott Michael Foster (as Kristoff) and Elizabeth Lail (as Anna).
“Once Upon A Time” season three is set to premiere this September and finish in May 2015.
