Following the news last week that Georgina had been casted as Elsa for the upcoming season of Once Upon A Time, she spoke with the Australian Associated Press about her processing of auditioning and landing the role. You can check out the interview below, where she also talks about her new husband – Actor, comedien, and screen-writer, Josh Mapleston.
It’s not every day you become a Disney princess. But for Georgina Haig, today is that day. The Sydney-based actress has just scored the role of Frozen’s Elsa in the Disney-produced US series, Once Upon A Time. But it turns out she owes the honour to her very own Prince Charming – her husband Joshua.
“I was on my honeymoon on Magnetic Island when I got the audition,” she told AAP. “Obviously it’s a lot harder to organise putting down an audition when you’re on a remote island with your new husband.”
“But he very kindly agreed to play a princess and read with me.” When the first audition was well-received, the groom had to once again stand in the role of Princess Anna when the two were holidaying at Port Douglas. Thankfully, the effort paid off.

Amazing news for Georgina, she will be joining the cast of “Once Upon A Time” for it’s much anticipated upcoming forth season taking on the role of Frozen’s Ice Queen, Elsa. You can read the full article below from TV Line, enjoy.
We have seen Etta Bishop’s future, and it is very, very… cool.
TVLine has learned that ABC’s Once Upon a Time has cast Fringe alum Georgina Haig in the plum Season 4 role of Queen Elsa of Arendelle — aka the chillin’ quasi-villain of filmdom’s Frozen.
Previously, TVLine broke the news that newcomer Elizabeth Lail and Greek grad Scott Michael Foster have been cast in the arc’s other two roles, as Anna and her beau Kristoff.
In her Once incarnation, Elsa has long struggled to control her “chilling” powers, and once even — Frozen spoilers ahead! — unleashed upon her town an eternal winter. Ultimately, she realized that the key to keeping her powers in check is love — namely, her bond with younger sister Anna — and now she is aware of the threat she poses if she were to lose control of her magic again.
Previewing the show’s introduction of Elsa, which came about after negotiations with Disney brass and then was teased at the close of the Season 3 finale, Once cocreator Adam Horowitz told TVLine, “We are very well aware of how beloved [Frozen] is, so we’re very careful that we want to tell a story that is uniquely ours but also honors those characters that everyone fell in love with this past year.” Added Eddy Kitsis: “The thing we love about Elsa is she is perceived to be a villain but is clearly misunderstood, and that goes to the heart of our show.”
In addition to her run on Fringe, Haig’s TV credits include CBS’ Reckless (where she’s playing disgraced cop Lee Anne Marcus) and the Aussie drama Underbelly.
It was 28 years ago today that Georgina Haig, the gorgeous actresses we all have come to know through the extensive career she has been building, was born. We are wishing the happiest of birthdays to Georgina, and so can you on twitter at @georginahaig!

Last night, Georgina’s new film ‘Nerve’ had it’s premiere at the Sydney Film Festival – and I’ve had yet to see a review that doesn’t depict the movie as incredible. Along with some of her fellow cast and crew, Georgina stepped out at the festival’s opening night (June 5) as well as Tuesday (June 11) night for the film premiere.
In just a little over two weeks, Georgina’s film ‘Nerve’ will be premiering at the Sydney Film Festival and they’ve just shared with us (via their youtube channel) a video of Georgina urging you to see the film. The film will be showing at the festival on both 12 June and 16 June, tickets available via their site.
Georgina’s latest film, ‘Nerve’ is headed to the Sydney Film Festival next month and via their twitter they’ve shared some great stills from the film that feature Georgina in character as Grace. In addition, I’ve added a new photoshoot image of Georgina with her ‘The Elegant Gentleman’s Guide to Knife Fighting’ costars.
Georgina joins the CBS family this fall in ‘Reckless‘, as southern cop Lee Anne Marcus. ‘Reckless’ has not yet been given a time slot on the fall calendar.
RECKLESS is a sultry legal drama set in Charleston, S.C., where a gorgeous Yankee litigator and a charming Southern attorney must hide their intense mutual attraction as a police sex scandal threatens to tear the city apart. Jamie Sawyer (Anna Wood) is enviously cool, confident and armed with south-side-of-Chicago street-smarts as she takes on the good ol’ boys in the South. Her handsome courtroom rival, Roy Rayder (Cam Gigandet), a divorced father of two, embodies the Old South and is the newly minted City Attorney, thanks to his influential former father-in-law, Dec Fortnum (Gregory Harrison). When disgraced cop Lee Anne Marcus (Georgina Haig) hires Jamie to represent her in a lawsuit against the police department, Jamie and Roy discover that Lee Anne is at the epicenter of a sinister case with dire implications for the members of the Charleston P.D. Heading that department is Deputy Chief Holland Knox (Michael Gladis), a family man who radiates integrity. Working under him are Terry McCandless (Shawn Hatosy), a cocky and corrupt detective and Preston Cruz (Adam Rodriguez), Jamie’s well-respected boyfriend who might not be all that he appears. Helping Jamie is her confidante and paralegal, Vi (Kim Wayans), an expert at digging up case-winning information. As Jamie and Roy spar in and out of the courtroom, dark secrets simmer behind every door and threaten to tarnish the genteel facade of seductive Charleston. Ian Sander, Kim Moses, Dana Stevens, Corey Miller and Catherine Hardwicke are executive producers for CBS Television Studios. Catherine Hardwicke (“Twilight”) directed the pilot.
Georgina’s headed to our tv’s full time, it’s just been announced that her pilot “Reckless” has been picked up by CBS!
The first-place network has added legal drama Reckless to its schedule, which already will feature hourlongs Intelligence and Hostages.
Reckless is described as a sultry legal show set in Charleston, S.C., where a gorgeous Yankee litigator (Cam Gigandet) and a Southern city attorney struggle to hide their intense attraction while clashing over a police sex scandal.
Safe Haven’s Dana Stevens penned the pilot and will co-executive produce the CBS Television Studios drama that counts Ian Sander, Kim Moses and Twilight’s Catherine Hardwicke among its exec producers. Hardwicke directed the pilot. Southland’s Shawn Hatosy — whose TNT drama was canceled Friday, co-stars alongside Michael Gladis (Mad Men), Kim Wayans, Georgina Haig, Anna Wood, Gregory Harrison and Adam Rodriguez.
In today’s Mx Sydney, there’s a feature about Georgina and her new thriller flick ‘Nerve’. Unfortunately, I’m unable to get my hands on a copy of it, however you can check out this gorgeous new photo shot for the feature, in the gallery now!
