Georgina Haig Set To Play Frozen's Snow Queen Elsa In 'Once Upon A Time'

The story line will evidently brush on the Snow Queen, first written by Hans Christian Anderson and recently adapted by Disney into the hit film Frozen. The film's producers are certainly invoking the film as they appreciated the take on Elsa. Executive producer Adam Horowitz said "The thing we loved so much about that movie, among a million other things, was that Elsa was misunderstood." This was echoed by Edward Kitsis who announced Elsa would not be the show's antagonist, stating Elsa "was never a villain."

As we saw in the finale of last season, an urn containing Elsa in Rumplestiltskin's vault was upturned when it was transported into future by Emma (Jennifer Morrison) and Hook's (Colin O'Donoghue) time travelling.

Haig will join the cast and two newcomers who will star as her on-screen family. Elizabeth Lail, an relatively unknown actress, will play Anna the younger sister of Elsa. Scott Michael Foster, best known for playing Cappie in Greek, will star as Anna's boyfriend Kristoff.
