Once Upon A Time (American TV Series)
Having been an avid fan of a series called the Sisters Grimm by Michael Buckley, I was unsurprisingly intrigued by this TV series. Usually, I am not interested in American TV shows because most of my time is spent watching Asian dramas. However, my sisters insisted that this is a good show from their friends' praiseworthy reviews for the show. So I sat down with them to watch the very first episode of the show.
After one episode, I've become a fan! Even though, the beginning starts off rather confusing because I was unsure whether the past and present was happening simultaneously or the show is just cutting back and forth.
I searched up the show on Wikipedia and I really like how each episode of the series will incorporate elements from various fairy-tales to tell the story.
Here is the main cast:
Ginnifer Goodwin as Mary Margaret Blanchard
She is Henry Mills' teacher in modern-day Storybrooke, Maine. Her fictional counterpart is Snow White. She is the mother of Emma Swan.
Jared S. Gilmore as Henry Mills
Jennifer Morrison as Emma Swan
She is the baby girl that Snow White and Prince Charming had to abandon in hopes that at her 28th birthday, she would return and break the curse. She is also the mother of Henry Mills.
Josh Dallas as David Nolan
His fictional counterpart is Prince "James" Charming. He is Snow White's husband and Emma Swan's father. Because he was injured in the fictional world, he is kept in a coma in the modern world.
Lana Parrilla as Regina Mills
Her fictional counterpart is the Evil Queen in the story of Snow White. She feels unhappy in the fictional world, so she enacts a curse that brings everyone to "another world" where she'll be able to find her happiness.
Robert Carlyle as Mr. Gold
His fictional counterpart is Rumpelstiltskin. He is a wise man, in both worlds. His character remains rather mysterious compared to the other characters. From his fictional counterpart, he is rather wise and sly.
