She was a cute toddler when we last saw her in Season 6, but (Spoiler) is all grown up and ready to rebel on ONCE UPON A TIME Season 7.
Remember that storyline waaay back in Once Upon a Time Season 4, with a certain Wicked Witch disguised as Maid Marian? If you’ll recall, that particular storyline resulted in Zelena (Rebecca Mader) having a daughter with Robin Hood (Sean Maguire). After Robin Hood died, Zelena named her baby Robin in his honor. In Season 7 episode 10, Robin will make an appearance – as an adult, played by Tiera Skovbye!
So far, Robin’s character sounds similar to Henry’s. She wants to find her own story, separate from the shadows of her powerful parents. (Her mother Zelena is set to appear in multiple episodes of Season 7 as well.) She’s described as a strong-willed good-girl-gone-bad, a rebel struggling to find her identity. Robin is tired of towing the line and eager to break out into the world and find her own adventure.
She’s also reported to be a love interest for someone. Given her scheduled first appearance in the winter finale, and the additional news that the winter finale will be a big episode for Alice/Tilly (Rose Reynolds), it seems possible that Alice/Tilly and Robin are (or were) romantically involved. Although we don’t have any confirmation on a relationship between Alice/Tilly and Robin, we do know that Alice/Tilly’s LGBT love story will be a big part of the story for the season as a whole.
Skovbye currently recurs on Riverdale as Betty Cooper’s sister Polly, and has also appeared on Dead of Summer, Arrow, and Supernatural. Recently, she has wrapped up filming on the indie thriller Summer of ’84.
Once Upon a Time airs Fridays at 8 PM ET on ABC.
