‘Once Upon A Time’ Casts New ‘Frozen’ Characters, But Who Will Be Elsa?
Once Upon A Time fans should prepare for a blast of cold with the introduction of several new Frozen characters in the show’s upcoming season. Months after the big Season 3 finale confirmed that Queen Elsa would be joining the fantasy series in Season 4, it’s confirmed that two more characters from the 2013 Disney hit film will also be getting embroiled in the fairy tale drama.
Newcomer Elizabeth Lail will play Elsa’s optimistic sister, Anna, who values her relationship with Elsa more than anything. Meanwhile, Scott Michael Foster, known primarily for his role as Cappie on ABC Family’s Greek, will play Kristoff, the handsome and sometimes gruff ice cutter who befriends Anna.
The news may be a disappointment for Frozen fans who were hoping to see Kristen Bell and Jonathan Groff, who voiced the roles in the film, take on the characters in the series, as well. But the casting is probably music to the ears of Once Upon a Time fans looking for a fresh take on the tale. Lail bears a strong resemblance to Anna, while Foster, as fans of Greek know, seems made to play somewhat naive but always lovable characters, like Kristoff. Both characters are set to appear in six episodes of Season 4. According to TV Line, Kristoff has moved to Anna’s castle and is adjusting to life indoors when viewers first catch sight of him on Once Upon a Time.
Of course, this leaves fans with one big question: Who will play Queen Elsa?
