Tinker Bell is set to resurface on Once Upon a Time. Rose McIver, who currently stars as Liv Moore on The CW’s iZombie, will be reprising her fairy character on the ABC fantasy series in an episode airing this spring.
“Tinker Bell was integral to Regina discovering her destiny with Robin Hood, so it only stands to reason that with Sean Maguire’s return to the show, our favorite fairy would pop back in for a visit,” executive producers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis told TVLine.com, which first reported the casting news. “We’re thrilled that Rose McIver was able to join us once again.”
McIver made her debut as Tinker Bell in season 3 of Once Upon a Time, where she informed Regina (Lana Parrilla) about her soulmate — who happens to be Robin Hood (Sean Maguire).
Aside from the iZombie star, former OUAT stars expected to return for the back half of season 6 include Maguire, JoAnna Garcia Swisher (as Ariel) and Alan Dale (as King George).
