Fans of the hit ABC series Once Upon a Time will be treated to two new faces in Storybrooke next season. Actresses Jamie Chung and Sarah Bolger have signed on for recurring roles in Once Upon a Time Season 2.
Jamie Chung will play the Chinese warrior Mulan, a character whose roots are traced back to an ancient poem about a woman who takes her father's place in battle. Sarah Bolger is portraying Princess Aurora, a.k.a. Sleeping Beauty. Actress Kristin Bauer van Straten played Aurora's evil stepmother Maleficent in two Season 1 episodes, so it is possible that we may see a Sleeping Beauty/Maleficent showdown in this new season.
It isn't known how Mulan or Sleeping Beauty will fit into the new season's story line, or how many episodes the actresses will appear in this year. We reported earlier this week that the series will have a panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2012 on Saturday, July 14 at 11 AM PT in Ballroom 20.
Once Upon a Time will return this fall on Sunday nights at 8 PM ET, although a series premiere date has not been announced yet.
