Though it took a while for her storyline to get going, Ruby (Meghan Ory) appeared in the majority of Once Upon a Time’s Season 1 episodes. In the fairy tale world, Ruby is Red Riding Hood, and she became a big player in the show’s mythology.

Deadline reports that Meghan has been promoted from a recurring role to a series regular for Season 2. Apparently, “Ory started fielding strong interest for pilots” in early 2012, so that may have been a brilliant strategic move on her part to negotiate the promotion.

We’re thrilled to hear the news, and can’t wait for Season 2 to start!

Once Upon a Time Season 2 premieres this fall on ABC.
