In a new Once Upon a Time season-four teaser exclusive to The Hollywood Reporter, Frozen’s Elsa (Georgina Haig) passes through the town’s landmark hangouts (Mr. Gold’s shop, Granny’s diner), leaving her chilly mark wherever she goes.
Naturally, her unwelcome presence puts everyone — from Mr. Gold/Rumpelstiltskin (Robert Carlyle) and Mary Margaret/Snow (Ginnifer Goodwin) to David/Charming (Josh Dallas) and Captain Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) — on edge.
Though Elsa’s face is never shown, her looming threat is powerful enough to get even Regina/Evil Queen (Lana Parrilla) to ready for the coming wrath. Just as the voiceover ominously hints at trouble for Storybrooke, Regina voices her dread, “Here we go again …..”
But Emma (Jennifer Morrison), in her signature red leather jacket, has her own thoughts on the new villainess: “Really?”
Frozen is getting a major presence on Once in the new season with a flurry of familiar characters as it picks up after the events of Disney’s Oscar-winning movie: Anna (Elizabeth Lail), Kristoff (Scott Michael Foster), Prince Hans (Tyler Jacob Moore) and Pabbie the Troll King (John Rhys-Davies). Lost alumna Elizabeth Mitchell appears in a mysterious Frozen-related role.
Comic-Con attendees in July were treated to a special first look from the premiere that featured Elsa and Anna at their parents’ grave site as they prepare for Anna’s wedding to Kristoff.
Executive producer Adam Horowitz told The Hollywood Reporter in May that they were “honored” to incorporate the Frozen universe into Once. “We fell in love with [the movie] when it came out last year like everyone did, and we want to do our best to do it justice,” he said.
Sadly, Ginnifer wasn’t able to attend Comic-Con. We all know it was for good reason though. She and real life Prince Charming, co-star Josh Dallas, welcomed baby boy Oliver Finlay Dallas to the world back in May, and now she is still playing catch up on the OUAT set. She did do a call in via Skype and sent out a special message to her Once Upon a Time fans.
Fans who were lucky enough to attend this year’s San Diego Comic-Con received a sneak peek at next season. For those of us who weren’t able to attend you can watch the video below.
Did you know Snow White and Prince Charming were a couple of pranksters?
Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas recently returned to the Once Upon a Time set in Vancouver more than a month after the birth of their first child. With extra security in tow, the engaged pair arrived on Wednesday, July 16, and the 32-year-old actor was seen carrying a baby carrier. Inside was a doll.
“Everyone was constantly smiling, so happy and relaxed, even played and joked around with the fake baby!” a witness told E! News.
The doll appeared to have been part of the storyline, as Show and Charming welcomed a child in the previous third season of the ABC fairy tale series. Goodwin, 36, gave birth to her and Dallas’ son, Oliver, on May 29. Their real child was not seen on set.
His parents appeared very affectionate there, and not just to each other—the actor pretended to give another man a lap dance, the witness said.
“It appears Josh has been working out,” the witness added. “He looks good.”

I just finished adding screencaps from episodes 3×02 and 3×03 of Once Upon a Time to the gallery.
Today’s interview is with Mary-Margaret/Snow White herself, Ginnifer Goodwin, who first would talk about the elephant in the room that her character and her on-screen daughter, Emma (Jennifer Morrison), have finally been able to discuss.
“I wanted to have the mother-daughter talk in Episode 201, after the curse broke,” she admits, referring to the revelation that Snow and Charming were indeed Emma’s parents. “I couldn’t think of anything more pressing than addressing the dynamic between a mother and daughter who are the same age and have been through what they’ve been through. But – and I say this without being sarcastic in any way – our exciting, adventurous plot last year kept interrupting those kinds of conversations. So, every time we went to address the relationship between them – Emma’s abandonment issues, Snow’s guilt – we’d be interrupted by some external obstacle,” she acknowledges.
JENNIFER MORRISON, JARED GILMORE, GINNIFER GOODWIN, JOSH DALLAS”One of the things about this world is that you’re forced to face yourself and face your past, which makes sense in a world where everything’s based on youth. Which we all know from the story of Peter Pan. So, because we are stuck somewhere like that at the beginning of this season, we’re going to absolutely have an opportunity to finally sit down and have these talks. What I love that I have been given to play as an actress is that Snow has clearly thought, since the end of Season One, that all it would ever take to heal the relationship between Emma and Snow would be saying ‘I’m sorry.’ Like, she thinks there’s some magical number, that once she hits saying ‘I’m sorry’ that many times, that it will have made up for everything that’s happened,” she admits.
GINNIFER GOODWIN, LANA PARRILLAThe recent trip to Neverland also gave Goodwin a chance to again work side-by-side with many members of the Once cast, including Lana Parrilla’s Regina. “I love it!” she enthuses. “I missed it, to be honest. I signed on to the pilot – that’s all you can sign on to as an actor; we have no clue what’s going to happen past the pilot – but I loved that storyline, I loved working with those actors, I loved the feel of everything in that world, so I really missed working with those particular actors on a day to day basis and really exploring the Regina dynamic with everyone.”
“In many ways, we were all sort of – not that we were separated last season, but everybody had a separate goal, and everybody had very different kinds of obstacles and reaching their goals, and now we have a common goal, and now our obstacles are also very similar,” she continues. So, we are truly sharing storylines now. I really missed it. There’s something that happens when a family is together on a road trip, and that something’s gonna happen a lot this season on Once. I think that beneath all of the layers, I am convinced – and this is something that Lana and I discuss a lot – is the fact that there must be a layer of love underneath all of these layers of hate. Because the truth is, though Regina has tried to kill Snow several times, since the last time she tried to kill her, there have been ample opportunities, including the scene last year where she rips out Snow’s heart. But something is now stopping her. I feel like there must be a sort of safety between these women at this point, that they feel like they can really go at it, and they know that they’ll stop short of death, and so they can get a lot more out. I have found it to be a lot more fun. Our characters are sassing each other a whole lot more this season, and things are going further in some ways, because we’ve at least temporarily removed the threat of murder and are now able to have it out to a certain extent. I love seeing all of these characters together. Having to come together to reach a common goal means that all egos have to be checked. Every single character has to be willing to compromise. It’s also really interesting to see what characters are willing to compromise what in order to ultimately save Henry.”
As someone who is also a fan of the show, Goodwin also has good things to say about what she is seeing on the show that doesn’t directly involve her. “I honestly teared up watching, in the premiere episode this year, Peter Pan and Henry flying through the air. That’s the Disney magic! That’s what I want to see as an audience member, is Peter Pan flying and taking our new hero Henry along,” she enthuses, adding that she hopes that, despite the dark nature of Neverland, the storyline will continue there for a time.
Congratulations to Ginny & Josh! So happy for the both of you and wish you a happily ever after.
Talk about a fairy-tale romance!
Once Upon a Time costars Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas are engaged, the couple’s reps confirmed to E! News on Friday, Oct. 11. Per People (who was first to report the happy news) Dallas (Prince Charming) proposed to Goodwin (Snow White) on Wednesday, Oct. 8 in L.A.
“We are so thrilled to announce our engagement and can’t wait to celebrate with our friends and family, including our second family at Once Upon a Time,” the pair said in a statement.
Back in March 2012, a source told E! News that Goodwin, 35, and Dallas, 31, had an “immediate connection when they met” in 2011. At the time, Dallas was married to Sherlock star Lara Pulver, so initially he and Goodwin were “just friends.”
