Adelaide Kane's Drizella Is Not To Be Underestimated on 'Once Upon A Time'

Adelaide Kane's Drizella Is Not To Be Underestimated on 'Once Upon A Time'

Drizella might be the one you want to hate on Once Upon A Time this season, along with her mom Lady Tremaine, but don’t underestimate anything about her.

Showrunner Eddy Kitsis told TVLine that while she puts “the ‘wicked’ in wicked stepsister…she’s not one to be underestimated — and yet certain characters make that mistake.”

Sounds like Drizella, played by Adelaide Kane, might just have an evil plan of her own up her sleeves.

In tonight’s episode, “A Pirate’s Life”, Henry finds himself in trouble, he calls upon his Storybrooke family for help, and together they set off on a mission to find Cinderella. Along the way, Hook is confronted by an unexpected foe who threatens the group’s success.

In Hyperion Heights, Jacinda searches for a way to see Lucy with some unwelcome assistance from Henry, while Victoria Belfrey enlists the help of Gold and Weaver to push Henry out of the neighborhood.

Tune in TONIGHT @ 8PM ET/PT on ABC.

Mekia Cox Clears Up 'Princess & The Frog' Questions on 'Once Upon A Time'

Mekia Cox Clears Up 'Princess & The Frog' Questions on 'Once Upon A Time'

Earlier this summer, we were all wondering about how Tiana’s story (from The Princess and the Frog) would fit into Once Upon a Time this season, and we didn’t get a great answer.

“We’re not redoing the movie, but we’re taking it as a jumping off point,” executive producer Adam Horowitz shared at the time. “We have a OUAT spin.”

However, Mekia Cox, who plays Tiana/Sabine in the upcoming season, is making it all good again for us.

“When I first auditioned, I asked that same question, and they said that they would like to meld The Princess and the Frog from Disney’s Princess and the Frog with the real Princess and the Frog stories, so they’re taking bits and pieces of it all,” she shared with EW.

She adds, “I mean, her name is Tiana, and they have bits of the bayou and all of that in there, but then they’re also taking pieces from other portions of the actual fairy tale, the Princess and the Frog story.”

Okay, so our Princess and the Frog hearts are a lot better now. Especially since we know that cooking is still part of her.

“Her main thing is she has her eyes on this goal of hers, which is cooking,” Mekia says. “She has always loved cooking, and you go back and you see how she gained this entrepreneurial spirit that she has; and that is brought into the real world.”

Once Upon a Time premieres Friday, October 6th on ABC.

Cinderella's Other Step-Sister Anastasia Will Appear on 'Once Upon A Time'

Cinderella's Other Step-Sister Anastasia Will Appear on 'Once Upon A Time'

Once Upon a Time is back this Friday on ABC with an all-new curse, cast members and city.

However, one face that wasn’t announced or casted just yet was Cinderella’s other step-sister Anastasia and it has fans wondering if we’ll ever see her on the new season.

The answer = YES! But, only in flashbacks right now.

According to TVLine, the younger Anastasia will be featured in episode #9, which is the ‘reset’ episode.

The site also reports that unlike her sister Drizella (Adelaide Kane), is described as “a happy and selfless” lass who “loves her sister and step-sister alike.”

We only have a few more days until Once Upon a Time returns on ABC and Adelaide Kane is teasing more about her character, Drizella.

“I don’t know if she’s evil, but she’s been a lot of fun to play,” the former Reign actress admits in a new interview with EW. “I’m in really, really cute clothes. My slogan for her is buttoned-up and b*****.”

Adelaide adds, “She seems like a very high-strung, slightly ditzy young woman and she’s just very petty. She’s kind of like that awful bully in high school except that she doesn’t know how to win people to her side so she’s just alone, snappy, snarky, sarcastic, and miserable all the time.”

“It’s been a lot of fun. I get some really fun lines where I can just snap back at people. I’ve been having a great time. She’s very funny. She’s the worst in a hilarious way.”

She also adds that she is the way she is because of the abuse from her mother, Lady Tremaine.

“Deep deep down, she’s been emotionally abused for years by an uncaring, negligent, controlling, obsessive mother,” Adelaide says. “There’s no softness to her.”

“She’s mostly just a bastard little girl in a grown woman’s body just lashing out at everybody who comes close to her, because she has no faith or trust in anything anymore and her whole world has just become keeping her mother happy, so her life doesn’t get any harder than it is.”

Once Upon A Time returns on Friday, October 6th.

Adelaide Kane is probably going to be your favorite, love-to-hate, mean girl when Once Upon a Time returns to ABC.

The Aussie-born actress opened up to EW more about her character on the ABC show for the upcoming season.

“My slogan for [Drizella] is buttoned up and b*****,” Adelaide shared, with a little laugh.

She adds that Drizella is “a very high-strung, slightly ditzy young woman and she’s just very petty.”

Yep, that bully you hate all throughout high-school is exactly who Drizella is.

“She’s like that awful bully in high school,” Adelaide adds, “Except that she doesn’t know how to win people to her side, so she’s just alone, snappy, snarky, sarcastic and miserable all the time.”

Adelaide Kane's Drizella on 'Once Upon A Time' is 'Deliciously Evil'

Adelaide Kane is going from a rational, country-before-everything else royal, to a nasty step-sister on Once Upon a Time.

New details about the Reign alum’s character, Drizella, were revealed today on Entertainment Weekly.

She’s “deliciously evil,” showrunner Eddy Kitsis says. “She presents herself to be as evil as the evil stepsisters promise to be, but like everything in Once Upon a Time, you never know what’s underneath it.”

Drizella is so evil on the show that she might even take away that throne from her mother, Lady Tremaine.

Adam Horowitz adds: “There’s a lot going on inside of Drizella, and she earned the evil moniker.”

Once Upon a Time returns on Friday, October 6th on ABC.

Tiana Has A Mission Story in 'Once Upon A Time' Season 7

Princess Tiana has definitely changed from the animated character who you’ve all been acquainted with.

In Once Upon a Time, she’s coming back as a strong leader with a big mission — to restore freedom to her people.

Creators Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis tell TVLine that Tiana (played by Mekia Cox) will make her debut in the seasons third episode called “The Garden of Forking Paths”.

“We meet Tiana in a fairy tale realm in turmoil,” they shared. “She’s a princess with a mission”

They add that “Tiana’s most defining characteristic is her strength. She’s been through a lot when we meet her, but she never wavers even when doubting oneself would seem to be the most logical, and safe, course of action.”

“She has her share of enemies, but that goes with the territory when one is fighting for a just cause.”

Once Upon a Time returns on Friday, October 6th @ 8PM ET/PT on ABC.
