We have seen Etta Bishop’s future, and it is very, very…
alum Georgina Haig in the plum Season 4 role of Queen Elsa of Arendelle — aka the chillin’ quasi-villain of filmdom’s
Previously, TVLine broke the news that newcomer Elizabeth Lail and
grad Scott Michael Foster have been cast in the arc’s other two roles, as Anna and her beau Kristoff.
incarnation, Elsa has long struggled to control her “chilling” powers, and once even —
spoilers ahead! — unleashed upon her town an eternal winter. Ultimately, she realized that the key to keeping her powers in check is love — namely, her bond with younger sister Anna — and now she is aware of the threat she poses if she were to lose control of her magic again.
Previewing the show’s introduction of Elsa, which came about after negotiations with Disney brass and then was teased at the close of the Season 3 finale,
cocreator Adam Horowitz told TVLine, “We are very well aware of how beloved [
] is, so we’re very careful that we want to tell a story that is uniquely ours but also honors those characters that everyone fell in love with this past year.” Added Eddy Kitsis: “The thing we love about Elsa is she is perceived to be a villain but is clearly misunderstood, and that goes to the heart of our show.”

that’s some MAGNIFICENT news!! I loved Georgina on Fringe and I don’t think they could have gone with a better choice!
What kind of perfect casting is that?!?! Get John Noble is S4B!!
Well, he has an extremely cool role on another show right now….Sleepy Hollow.
But isn’t she on another show right now called ‘Reckless’
From what I can see, Reckless has finished filming their episodes a long time ago.
Thought i saw her somewhere, and it was on that show which unfortunately i didnt continue with…
Thank goodness she has blonde hair. I can’t stand when actors/actresses with dark hair are cast and hair dyed blonde. It just looks off.
Yes she is, the town perceived her as a villain because she accidentally froze summer. Maybe try watching the movie again.
perhaps I’m mistaken but I’m pretty sure Elsa is falsely perceived as a villain in Frozen…(especially thanks to Han’s false report of her killing Anna) that’s the point the town is scared….and Elsa is scared of herself and her powers, …thus the perception she’s a villain…Anna knows better though, as does the audience but that doesn’t change the ‘fear’ of her that the Duke of Weselton tires to stir-up or that Han’s stirs up…
I think the confusion lies in the wording. It’s made out to sound like the audience perceives her as a villain which isn’t true.
Sharing this news with people who haven’t finished watching Fringe is, complicated
Love Georgina, she did a great job on Fringe and I am sure she’ll be up to the task
Good casting news. I loved her on Fringe’s final season. She did good on first Reckless episode. It will be interesting to see her play a villain on show.
So exciting! I thought Georgina was wonderful in Fringe – though her part was more short lived than I had expected.
She definitely looks perfect for the role. The ouat casting department never ceases to amaze.
I’m a huge Frozen fan myself and am not at all worried about how Adam and Eddy will handle the story and their characters on ouat. They’re too big a pair of fan boys themselves to compromise that beautiful story. Can’t wait for S4 :)
Agree. They will handle it well. Its just some ppl will want to point out negative things as usual. Part of the job it seems by ppl
Great cast! Happy for Georgina, She’s really good. She prouved it in Fringe, and will prouve it again on Once.
I don’t see it, but I haven’t seen Fringe or anything she’s been in so I don’t know how she acts. Once usually has amazing casting, so I trust their decision.
I can definitely see this… OUAT has done very well over the years with spot on casting. Better than any other show I’ve ever seen.
Bigger fan of her than I am of OUaT. I know she will do well… I guess I need to stop hoping that Fringe actors get more Fringe level work. There really isn’t a lot of Fringe level work for them to get.
Great casting. Real question is: What did she (Anna) do to Rumple that got her stuck in that box in his vault?
I was a little iffy on it being Frozen, but I think it will work out well. But please, please don’t let her be related to anyone in the cast, I can’t take another “family twist”. There was no reason that both of the Season 3 villians had to have family ties with Rumple/Regina.
