Abc - Sarah Bolger Cast As Sleeping Beauty In 'One Upon A Time'

The producers of the Abc drama, Once Upon A Time have cast the actress Sarah Bolger in the role of Sleeping Beauty / Princess Aurora. The star of The Tudors will join the programme for its second season to play the role, which will be a recurring one throughout the series. The news, courtesy of Entertainment Weekly, comes on the heels of the recent announcement that Jamie Chung is also joining the show.

In the original tale, Princess Aurora fell into a deep sleep after she pricked her finger on Maleficent's spinning wheel. She is revived only by a kiss from a prince. Maleficent's character was introduced into the first season of the show, which starred Ginnifer Goodwin, Jennifer Morrison and Josh Dallas. The role of Maleficent is played by Kristin Bauer van Straten. In Once Upon A Time, Princess Aurora's character is a spoilt girl, from a privileged background, who is "willing to sacrifice everything for love," according to Entertainment Weekly.
The character of Maleficent is also being given her own moment on the silver screen, courtesy of Angelina Jolie. The movie, entitled 'Maleficent' is scheduled for a 2014 and will star Jolie in the title role, alongside Elle Fanning and JUNO TEMPLE.
