“Once Upon a Time” creators Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis are in the process of shaping their mini-spin-off, “Wonderland,” the tale of the Lewis Carroll land, pre-“Once”-curse. Now a big piece of the puzzle has been found — the show’s Alice.
EW reports that relative unknown Sophie Lowe has been cast in the now-titled project “Once: Wonderland” as the protagonist we all know and love from Carroll’s “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” and “Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There.”
Lowe joins Michael Socha, who has been cast as the Knave of Hearts, and Peter Gadiot, who plays Alice’s love interest, Cyrus. Kitsis describes the show as not a spin-off in the traditional sense.
“[It’s not] another five-year,
22-episode series. It’s much more in the vein of an
‘American Horror Story,’ with a beginning, middle, and end,” says Kitsis.
We’re intrigued to see how that plays out. We hope the show can get Sebastian Stan back as the Mad Hatter and Barbara Hershey back as the Queen of Hearts.
