See also

Rumors have floated around for some time that fairy tale character Rapunzel would be making an appearance on “Once Upon A Time” On Dec. 4, TV Line confirmed the rumor and even named names.

The ABC drama has cast Alexandra Metz in the role of the long-locked one. Metz will appear as Rapunzel in the 14th episode of season three. This places the air date sometime in March or April as the second half premiere airs March 9.

There is no word at this time on how many episodes Rapunzel will be featured in or whether she might return at a later time. That is always a distinct possibility with “Once Upon A Time.”

Metz’s previous acting credits include movie roles in 2011’s “Trouble in the Heights” and “American Standard” and 2012’s “Backwards.” She also starered in the “Originals.”

The Brown University graduate will join an already female-heavy cast including Ginnifer Goodwin as Snow White, Lana Parilla as The Evil Queen, Emilie de Ravin as Belle and Jennifer Morrison as Emma Swan.
