Christie Laing shook things up last season on ONCE UPON A TIME, playing Marian. Marian and Robin Hood’s (Sean Maguire) relationship will definitely be addressed this season. I spoke with Laing about the Frozen characters joining the show, Mariana and Robin Hoods fate, and what we can look forward to on tonight’s premiere.

What can you tell us about next season on the show? Do we pick up right where we left off in the premiere?
Christie Laing: I can’t tell you much but I can tell you that it’s going to be a very cold introduction to Season 4.

What is one fairy tale character you personally would love to see on the show?
I would love to see Jasmine!

What’s in store for Marian and Robin Hood?
Robin and Marian have some catching up to do and I hope the viewers are looking forward to seeing how that goes.

What was your reaction when you found out your character may ruin the Queens last chance at love?
I felt for the situation but also related to the fact that love often doesn’t go how you expect it too. I don’t think any matters of the heart are black and white, which is one of many things I enjoy about OUAT.

What can you tell us about Elsa and Anna? Are you a fan of Frozen?
Now that Frozen is coming to OUAT I certainly have caught up on my Frozen knowledge and it’s very cool. I can tell you that you will be seeing Anna and Elsa and I think fans will be very interested to follow along with their story within the world of OUAT.

Were you a fan of the show before you were cast? How was the audition process for you?
After being cast as Marian I did begin following the show to get a feel for it. Marian, as we all know, didn’t stick around for very long following her Season 2 appearance but I did keep up to date since it was such a fantastic show so I was thrilled to know I would be coming back. Auditioning for OUAT was very quick. I read a scene that gave no indication to the character, and shortly after received the call that Marian was in fact whom I would be playing.
