With the Spell of Shattered Sight unleashed on ONCE UPON A TIME, things aren’t generally looking up. But there is one exception to the doom and gloom: Anna and Elsa finally reunited.

Viewers had seen glimpses of the sisters’ relationship in flashbacks — which also allowed ONCE UPON A TIME guest stars Elizabeth Lail (Anna) and Georgina Haig (Elsa) to establish their own working relationship — but their beach reunion was the first time they had been together in the present, and was the culmination of Elsa’s arc-long quest to find her sister.

ONCE UPON A TIME: Georgina Haig on Wearing Elsa’s Dress, and Being Like Santa to Children

Filed under #1 featured, Once Upon A Time

georgina-Georgina Haig (Elsa) has easily fit into the ONCE UPON A TIME family, but as surreal as it might be for some FROZEN fans to see the character come to life on the ABC drama, Haig admitted the magic wasn’t lost on her the first time she saw Elsa’s trademark dress, either.

“I was in the costume department and the crazy thing was they had made this dress based on not knowing who was gonna be cast,” Haig recalled while speaking to reporters on the show’s Vancouver set. “Because that’s how fast they have to work — I only got cast a week before we were shooting and obviously it’s quite a complex dress, they had to start it earlier than that. So anyway, I got in it and they kind of pinned it all in and it was just kinda magic seeing it. Because… I don’t know! It’s so beautiful and it’s real crystals and it’s right out of the cartoon, you know, as well. They modeled it so precisely, which is very difficult to make something a human can move in that is coming off a cartoon. That’s not easy. Yeah, so I was just kinda in awe of the whole department when I put it on and they’ve just kinda improved it more and more. They’ve changed the shape of the corset and… yeah. treacherous. They had to replicate this fabric, so they had to get it all hand-beaded in LA. I think [costume designer] Eduardo [Castro] calls it ‘the treacherous dress’ because it is an amazing amount of work, a lot of people go into making this dress.”

Of course, as gorgeous as the dress is, Haig acknowledged that its practicality is rather limited.

ONCE UPON A TIME: Jennifer Morrison, Robert Carlyle, and Georgina Haig on the Fight to Control Emma’s Powers

The Snow Queen has everyone on edge on ONCE UPON A TIME, and one of the unintended consequences of that is that Emma’s already-shaky control of her powers becomes even more unstable.

“The Snow Queen knows how to push her buttons,” ONCE UPON A TIME star Jennifer Morrison (Emma) acknowledged to reporters on set. “And so she knew [Emma] very well at a young age, but she took her memories. So she knows how to get under her skin, she knows what buttons to push to rile her up internally.”

“So very similar to how Elsa has magic that gets out of control when she’s upset…it’s as if my magic follows the same rules: when I’m riled up, when I’m in that much turmoil, when someone is pushing me that hard, things do start to get out of control, and it doesn’t become my choice to use the power,” Morrison continued. “So then I become very afraid I’m going to hurt people I care about because I feel so out of control of it…and I turn to Rumple thinking he’ll be an ally…I would rather be rid of the magic than hurt anyone I care about.”

But Rumple has his own hesitations about helping Emma try to contain — or get rid of — her magic.

ONCE UPON A TIME: FRINGE’s Georgina Haig Lands Pivotal FROZEN Arc Role

July 3, 2014 by  
Filed under Once Upon A Time

fringe-etta-georgina-haig-thumbONCE UPON A TIME’s Elsa is going to look familiar to TV fans: a rep for the show confirms that Georgina Haig (who played Peter and Olivia’s daughter, Etta, on the fourth and fifth seasons of FRINGE) has landed the role.

OUAT viewers got their first glimpse of Elsa in the third season finale, as Emma and Hook accidentally brought the (locked up) Elsa back with them after their time-traveling adventures. (Which also included Emma saving Robin Hood’s wife, Marion, from death, much to Regina’s chagrin.)

Haig (who is currently on CBS’ RECKLESS) will be joined during this FROZEN arc by recently cast Scott Michael Foster (Kristoff) and Elizabeth Lail (Anna).

Are you excited to see Haig on ONCE UPON A TIME?
