We are still reeling over the fact that Meghan Ory is leaving her Red Riding Hood days behind to play Riley Neal, an ex-Secret Service agent, but we can’t complain — at least she’ll have more screen time on CBS’ Intelligence than she did on the latter part of Once Upon a Time Season 2.
If you were worried about Ruby wearing something than other than her signature cape, fear not — girl rocks a pantsuit like nobody’s business, even rivaling Scandal’s Olivia Pope. Don’t believe us? We have the fierce photos to prove it, including her sexy co-star Josh Holloway (of Lost fame), whom she’ll be “protecting” in the new show.
This time around, Meghan won’t be instilling fear in people’s hearts by baring her teeth and morphing into a wolf, but rather wielding a gun, kicking ass, and taking names. We’re excited to see how the new mid-season show pans out, but in the meantime, she notes that we shouldn’t write her off OUAT just yet — the co-creators certainly aren’t!
“I'm definitely going to miss being there every day,” Meghan told TV Guide, “but it's for a good reason. I think Once is going to go for many seasons and I would love to guest star maybe once a year just to see what Ruby's up to.”
As a series regular, we’ll see her taking down bad guys in a whole new way, and perhaps she’ll even find a bestie like Belle and a great diner to spend her nights at, too.
