As all fans know from the Season Three finale of "Once Upon a Time," the producers haven't wasted any time in bringing the newest members of the Disney fairytale lineup into the show. Disney, of course, is ultimately the owner of both "Once" and "Frozen," so it was only a matter of time - and not much time at that - before there was a happy joining of the two franchises.
Season three concluded with a shot of Princess Elsa seen from behind. It wasn't even clear then that Anna and Kristoff would even be involved, but if Elsa was going to be around, that was a pretty safe bet. Well, now it is confirmed.
Well, news is out that the actors who will play Anna and Kristoff in the upcoming fourth season of Once Upon a Time have been cast. Since filming begins very soon, it was high time, too.
According to TV Line, Elizabeth Lail will play Anna and Scott Michael Foster will play Kristoff.
|Elizabeth Lail as Anna|
Elizabeth Lail has a very short list of credits. She was in a short, "Model Airplane," and that's about it. She just graduated from the North Carolina School of the Arts in May. This must be the break of a lifetime for her. She really must have wowed them at the audition and have just the right look.
|Scott Michael Foster as Kristoff|
Scott Michael Foster has been around for a while. He has been in a number of tv series, including "Law & Order: LA" and "Greek," in which he played Cappie. Foster also played Thayer Mangeress in "Teenage Dirtbag." He is a hot property, an actor on the rise, so he should be able to handle the role of Kristoff easily.
According to the site, Anna in "Once" is described as a “fun-loving, fearless optimist who often gets herself into situations where she is in over her head, yet is able to triumph due to her resourcefulness and can-do spirit. She values her relationship with her sister Elsa above all else.”
Kristoff is described as “a hearty, salt-of-the-earth ice cutter whose sometimes-gruff demeanor can hide his deep love for Anna and her sister Elsa. When we first meet him on Once, he is adjusting to life at the castle — including sleeping indoors for the first time in his life.”
Sleeping indoors for the first time, eh. Well, at least Kristoff wasn't raised by wolves, so he's got that going for him. Or was he? Tune in and find out.
Oh, and as for the inevitable next question - no, as of this writing they have not announced casting for Elsa. That, however, can't be far off.
