I hope you are because Elizabeth Mitchell (Gia, The Santa Clause 2: The Mrs. Claus, The Santa Claus 3: The Escape Clause, E.R., Frequency, Lost, V, and Revolution) is chillingly awesome as the latest misunderstood big-bad on the latest season of ABC’s Once Upon a Time.
Elizabeth plays the Snow Queen, a new character based out of the Frozen Disney franchise. She brings a new twist to the small, tight-knit town of Storybrooke, Maine and her portrayal of is refreshingly sly, unique, and fun.
Once Upon a Time airs Sunday nights on ABC TV. Check your local TV listings for the appropriate time and channel in your area.
About Once Upon a Time (courtesy of abc.go.com):
This is Fairy Tale Land. It’s filled with magic, monsters and all of the characters we all know from stories growing up. It’s real, and so are the people in it. But unlike the “happily ever after” you may have heard about, their stories continued, and The Evil Queen cast a Dark Curse over the land….
This is Storybrooke. It’s a quiet, little, New England town filled with people who go about their everyday lives with no idea who they really are. The Queen’s Curse has trapped them here and placed her in near-complete control. They have no real memories and no real hope.
Once Upon A Time is, at its core, a story about hope.
“For us, that’s what a fairy tale is. It’s that ability to think your life will get better. It’s why you buy a lottery ticket—because if you win you get to tell your boss that you’re quitting and you get to move to Paris or wherever and be who you always wanted to be. And that’s Cinderella, right? One day she’s sweeping up and the next she’s going to the ball. Adam and I just wanted to write about something hopeful that for one hour a week allows one to put everything aside and have that feeling that your dreams just may come true.”
