First look at Alexandra Metz as Rapunzel in "Once Upon a Time"




blackfashion:

ABC’s Once Upon a Time first look at Rapunzel.

"We went a little darker and freakier," says executive producer Edward Kitsis. "A little more horror story in the vein of [the 2004 movie] The Grudge.”

The long-locked damsel played by Alexandra Metz will be visited in her tower by Prince Charming as well as a mysterious hooded menace.

Unfortunately, it appears that Rapunzel will not be a recurring character on the show. As appears to be par for the course with characters of color on the show, from what I have read.

Actress Alexandra Metz will play the iconic fairy-tale character on the ABC drama



Rapunzel is heading to Storybrooke.

The Originals actress Alexandra Metz has been cast as the fairy-tale character in the third season on ABC’s Once Upon a Time, The Hollywood Reporter confirms.

Rapunzel will be introduced into the Once Upon a Time universe in the 14th episode, as TVLine first reported. Metz currently is booked for one episode. (SOURCE)



Naturally, the OUAT fandom is already losing their shit over this casting. It's probably just gonna be Lancelot all over again tho.

Matt's Inside Line: Scoop on NCIS, NCIS: Red, Once, Big Bang Theory, Castle, Scandal and More


Once Upon a Time | As previously previewed, Regina is most definitely out for blood, having realized that Mary Margaret orchestrated Cora’s death. But how exactly will the Evil Queen go about exacting her revenge? “I honestly can’t say — it’ll just give away too much,” Lana Parrilla (sorta) tells us. “But I think she’s going to ‘rely a little bit on the universe’ and let things unfold as they’re meant to be.” Said differently: “She’s going to stalk her for a little bit, and then try to take her down.” (Psst, more Once scoop below.)

Tamara has a tumbleblog now. No idea how long it'll last considering her status, but I thought it was interesting that there already people supporting her.

New OUaT Tamara clue

[livejournal.com profile] jaeliyah: Thoughts? Mostly, I'm just heaving a disappointed sigh that the Snow White heroine apparently needs another PoC foil. I know it could be a red herring, but it's not like Once Upon a Time is known for subtlety. Also, that super questionable hashtag is less a reference to Tamara than to Snow White's latest storyline, but it was brought up in the comments and has since been changed to #DarkHeart.

Scoop: Once Upon a Time Casts Walking Dead Actress — But Who Is She Playing?



Once Upon a Time is adding Sonequa Martin-Green to its ranks for Season 2 — if not beyond.

TVLine has learned that the actress, whose TV credits include The Walking Dead and The Good Wife, will appear this season in multiple episodes as Tamara. No further details on the character were made available, though TVLine’s previous intel indicates that Once was initially angling to cast an African-American with a British accent in the part, and that Tamara could spill over into Season 3 of the ABC drama.

Martin-Green recently debuted on The Walking Dead, just before the hiatus, as Sasha, one of the prison newcomers Carl sequestered from his group. On The Good Wife, she enjoyed a run as Courtney, the assistant Alicia poached from Martha Plimpton’s Patti Nyholm. She also played Army Wives‘ Kanessa. SOURCE: 1, 2, 3

New Female character to get reoccurring role in "Once Upon a Time"

SO, I'VE long since stopped watching Once Upon a Time as to further prevent the death of precious brain cells via a onset of tedium, mediocre writing and acting. However, this little anecdote has a certain POC Disney fandom in a tizzy and though I doubt anything will actually ever come from it, it'll be interesting to see how this turns out as the character is a Woman of Color, presumably with a reoccurring role status.

Info's behind the cut.

Let's countdown the episodes before their death, shall we? )
