Georgina Haig lands the big role as Queen Elsa for the upcoming season of ABC’s “Once Upon a Time”

The roles of Anna and Kristoff have been filled by Elizabeth Lail and Scott Michael Foster, respectively, filling out the new cast members joining the popular ABC show. There was a “No comment” on the prospect of a CGI Olaf showing up,” according to TVLine.

“We are very well aware of how beloved (Frozen) is, so we’re very careful that we want to tell a story that is uniquely ours but also honors those characters that everyone fell in love with this past year,” co-creator Adam Horowitz said to TV Line.

Georgina is best known for playing Henrietta “Etta” Bishop on FOX’s Fringe, as the daughter of the main characters Peter Bishop (Joshua Jackson) and Olivia Dunham (Anna Torv). She in 2011’s The Elephant Princess as Zamira.

This is a big role for the Aussie Haig after losing on the Andromeda role in Wrath of the Titans and Gwen Stacy in The Amazing Spider-Man films to Emma Stone.

As mentioned above, Foster will play Kristoff after appearances on Greek, Chasing Life and Zero Hour. Elizabeth Lail is described as a newcomer, and will join the cast as Anna.

Once stars Ginnifer Goodwin, Josh Dallas, Jennifer Morrison, Lana Parrilla, Robert Carlyle, Jared Gilmore, Emilie de Ravin, Meghan Ory, Colin O’Donoghue, Raphael Sbarge and others.
