'Once Upon a Time' Fills 2 Major 'Frozen' Roles
Once Upon a Time has filled two Frozen roles.
Scott Michael Foster (Greek) and newcomer Elizabeth Lail have joined the fourth season of ABC's fairy-tale drama as Kristoff and Anna, respectively, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. Both are recurring roles.
In Disney's Oscar-winning film Frozen, Kristoff — Anna's love interest — was voiced by Jonathan Groff, while Anna — Elsa's younger sister — was voiced by Kristen Bell.
The role of Elsa, who was introduced at the end of the season-three finale, still remains to be cast. The character is expected to make her grand entrance in the premiere this fall.
"We are dealing with the world of Frozen," executive producer Adam Horowitz told THR in May. "We are honored to be allowed to do it. We loved the movie. We fell in love with it when it came out last year like everyone did, and we want to do our best to do it justice."
Executive producer Edward Kitsis told THR at the time of Once's iteration of Elsa: "[What] we loved so much about the character of Elsa was that she was considered a villain but she never really was. She was misunderstood. That, on our show, speaks to us so strongly, that it was a toy we had to play with."
TVLine first reported the news.
Foster is repped by ICM Partners and Consortium Entertainment. His other credits include Chasing Life, Zero Hour, Halt and Catch Fire, Californication and The River. Lail, who has appeared in two short films, is repped by ICM Partners.
