The film’s iconic sisters Anna (Elizabeth Lail) and Elsa (Georgina Haig) were already cast. Mitchell’s exact role isn’t known yet, but she is set to have some sort of relation to the sisters, Arendelle, and Storybrooke in general. It’s important to note that the Frozen arc in the upcoming season will be taking place after the events of the hit film. That being said, it’s pretty much anyone’s guess who this mysterious new character could be. Anna and Elsa’s mother died at the beginning of the movie, but there’s always flashbacks to characters’ past so that could be one explanation. There is a hint though that she could be a villain, so we’re back to square one all out of guesses if that turns out to be true.
Elizabeth Mitchell is perhaps most known for her role as Juliet Burke on Lost. She won’t be the first Lost alum joining the show. Jorge Garcia, Naveen Andrews, Emilie de Ravin, and Rebecca Mader have all been on OUAT (or its spin-off set in Wonderland) in some capacity or another.
Now I know Ian Somerhalder is integral to The Vampire Diaries, but I’d love to see him join Once Upon A Time for a short time if schedules and contracts could allow it. He’d be the best Flynn Rider, Rapunzel’s love interest in Tangled. This past season we briefly saw Rapunzel, but it would be awesome to see Ian use his natural smoldering look that Flynn was known for in Tangled.
Are you as equally excited to see Elizabeth Mitchell join Once Upon A Time? Do you have any other favorite Lost actors you’d love to see pop up in Storybrooke?
