The search is over for Once Upon a Time‘s Little Mermaid.
For now, Garcia is expected to appear in two episodes. TV Guide Magazine first reported the news.
It was revealed at Comic-Con that the Little Mermaid would be making an appearance in the new season, which kicks off Sept. 29, with a teaser revealing Ariel/Little Mermaid. As is ordinary practice on the ABC fairy tale drama, expect the Little Mermaid to have a slight twist from the 1989 animated feature classic.
Garcia’s casting comes weeks after Once Upon a Time cast Rose McIver in the role of Tinker Bell, with executive producer Adam Horowitz hinting that she will have a “surprising connection” to a main character.
Garcia, repped by WME and John Carrabino Management, most recently starred in NBC’s short-lived comedy Animal Practice and was a regular on The WB’s Reba. She has also recently recurred on Royal Pains and starred in ABC’s Better With You.
