Peter Pan’s fairy sidekick has a surprising connection to one of the show’s main characters — but who?
Get ready to clap! New Zealand-born actress Rose McIver has been cast as Tinker Bell on the upcoming third season of Once Upon A Time, Entertainment Weekly reports, adding yet another layer to the mystery surrounding Peter Pan and Neverland.
Creators Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis confirmed that Tinker Bell would be seen in season three during the show’s Comic-Con panel, adding that she has a “surprising connection” to one of the characters present on the panel.
For those of you keeping score at home, that list includes Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin), Charming (Josh Dallas), Regina (Lana Parrilla), Mr. Gold (Robert Carlyle), Belle (Emilie de Ravin), Captain Hook (Colin O’Donoghue), Neal (Michael Raymond-James) — and, of course, Emma (Jennifer Morrison).
