I do believe in fairies! ABC’s ‘Once Upon A Time’ has caught itself a fairy and has filled the role of Tinkerbell in the third season of the magical drama. Think happy thoughts and she will help you fly away to Neverland!
New Zealand actress Rose McIver has landed the role of the blonde-haired, blue-eyed pixie, and hopefully she will bring as much spunk and spirit that the character needs. The new season of ‘Once Upon A Time’ will begin in Neverland as the cast travels to the mythical island to try and rescue Henry (Jared Gilmore) from the evil terror that is Peter Pan. I know, it is a shocker to see the loveable little boy as the series’ new big bad. Tink (McIver) will be appearing as recurring guest star, flying in for multiple episodes.
Besides her obvious connection to the land of the lost boys, Tinkerbell will have a surprising introduction and unlikely connection to another character,” say executive producers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis.
McIver, who is set to appear in the upcoming Showtime drama ‘Masters of Sex’, has a rap sheet that includes work in films such as ‘The Lovely Bones’, and ‘Ozzie’ and series like ‘Power Rangers R.P.M.’ and ‘Super City’. Do you think that McIver is a good choice for the iconic role of Tinkerbell?
ABC’s ‘Once Upon A Time’ returns to TV on September 29th at 8pm.
