Is Sophie the Alice you imagined? Get the latest scoop about the ‘Once Upon A Time’ spin-off’s new star!
Sophie Lowe is taking a trip through the looking glass! The English-born actress has been cast as Alice in the Wonderland-set spin-off of ABC’s Once Upon A Time, now tentatively titled Once: Wonderland.
But Sophie won’t be making the journey alone! Relative newcomer Peter Gadiot has also been cast in the pilot as Cyrus, who will apparently be Alice’s love interest — even though I totally ship her and Bill, the lizard with the ladder.
And before you even ask, no; Sebastian Stan is not going to be reprising his role as the Mad Hatter. (I know, I’m bummed too.)
‘Once: Wonderland’ Plot Details Revealed
Though much of Once: Wonderland — which is being crafted by Once executive producers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz — is being kept under wraps, we do know a little bit about Sophie’s version of Alice.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, this Alice “lived a hard and long life” and “carries those scars on her psyche.” So, much like the fairy tale characters we’ve met on Once thus far, this Alice is going to be much darker than her colorful Disney counterpart.
As for Cyrus, the site describes him as having a “background shrouded in mystery.” (Of course.)
