Aussie Sophie Lowe is a relative unknown to U.S. audiences, but she’s about to come bursting onto the scene as the latest version of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in “Once Upon a Time in Wonderland,” the spinoff to popular ABC family program “Once Upon a Time.”
We can assure you this Alice is not the tea-drinking young girl you’re used to from the Disney movie, which is why Lowe is one of Zap2it’s Ones to Watch for 2013-14. Check out some fun facts about Sophie in our Q&A below.

Alien invasion! I have always been fascinated by Aliens.
