Once Upon a Time: Will Amy Acker Return? — Exclusive
Once Upon a TimeSeason 2 has been overflowing with new faces, at the expense of some of the one-off characters we met in Season 1. One such character is Nova, the fairy who fell in love with Grumpy (Lee Arenberg) on Season 1, Episode 14: "Dreamy." Will Amy Acker ever bring her magic to the show again to conclude that story?
Wetpaint Entertainment recently caught up with Amy at the premiere of the Broadway production of Breakfast at Tiffany's, and, of course, we had to ask if we might see her on Once Upon a Time again.
"Oh I hope so," she gushed. "I've been missing my pink costume!"
While Amy is a little behind on the show, she also told us she's hoping to catch up on Once when she gets a chance. "I saw the very beginning of this season," she explained. "And then I've just seen little snippets of — 'Oh, the magic!' and this and that, and I'm like, 'Wait!' I need to do a marathon."
Meanwhile, if you're missing Amy, you can catch her in Joss Whedon's film version of Much Ado About Nothing, which also featuresCastlestar Nathan Fillion. Amy previewed that even though it's an adaptation of Shakespeare, the film is imbued with that classic Joss sensibility — the trademark style that has made stories from Buffy to The Avengers sparkle.
"There's so much of [Joss] in the direction," she told us. "Everyone [had] such a good time making the movie. I think none of us knew that it was even going to come out. It was such a fun experience, and I feel like the audience feels like they're part of the party."
Much Ado is set for theatrical release on June 7, 2013. You can catch the next episode of Once Upon a Time on Sunday, April 21 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
