'Once Upon a Time' Casts Little Mermaid THR
The ABC drama series "Once Upon a Time" has cast its Little Mermaid. The Hollywood Reporter's Live Feed reports that actress JoAnna Garcia will take on the role of the Disney princess.
Garcia is expected to appear in two episodes in the upcoming third season, the story notes. The appearance of the character was first revealed at Comic-Con.
It's likely that the Little Mermaid persona will be slightly different from the 1989 animated classic about the mermaid who gives up her voice to become human.
Garcia most recently starred in the short-lived NBC comedy "Animal Practice" and was a regular on The WB's "Reba."
