Once Upon a Time Finds its Ariel! Joanna Garcia to Play the Little Mermaid in OUAT Season 3
Once Upon a Time finds its little mermaid! In one of the most anticipated recent casting moves for the ABC fantasy drama, actress Joanna Garcia of Reba and Privileged has earned the role of Ariel. TV Guide first reported the news, adding that Once Upon a Time producers promise a very compelling back-story and an interesting twist for their take on the little mermaid, while still drawing plenty of inspiration from the fiery-haired Disney character we all know and love. So does that mean Ursula could be joining her? Executive Producer Eddy Kitsis says, "Ursula could appear this season, absolutely. But on our show, you never know what that might mean."
