Tiana – or is it Sabine? – has been promoted from a recurring character to a series regular on ABC’s ONCE UPON A TIME!
Ready for more Tiana news from Once Upon a Time? Yesterday we shared that The Princess and the Frog star Tiana’s mother Eudora, played by Robin Givens, will appear in at least one episode. Today, we learned a new tidbit about that episode: it will involve Tiana’s cursed alter ego, named Sabine, and a flashback into her past. We can expect to hear a lot more Tiana news this season, as her actress, Mekia Cox, has been upped to a series regular! Regarding the flashback, executive producer Adam Horowitz explained,
We’re not redoing the movie, but we’re taking it as a jumping off point. We have a Once Upon a Time spin.
Although Dania Ramirez‘s Cinderella is a new spin on an old Once Upon a Time character, Tiana will be a completely new addition to the series. What other characters would you like to see on the show for the first time? Let us know in the comments below.
Once Upon a Time returns on ABC on October 6th.
