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.
