There are going to be a lot of new characters when "Once Upon a Time" season 3 returns as well as old ones that will return. According to a Feb. 21 report by Zap2It, it has been confirmed that another familiar face will be coming back to the fairy tale show. Ruby/Red Riding Hood, played by Meghan Ory, will be coming back.
Executive producer and co-creator Adam Horowitz confirmed the news on Twitter. There was speculation that Meghan might be coming back to play Ruby and Red Riding Hood. During the TCA winter press tour, she teased,
"I'm not gone from 'Once.' Red Riding Hood just kind of disappeared into the mist. I'm told she will be back but that's up to Adam and Edward [Kitsis] when that happens."
Other returning characters include Ariel, Sleeping Beauty and Princess Aurora. While not confirmed, some are speculating that Tinkerbell may also come back. In addition to old characters returning, fans will be introduced to Prince Leopold, Blackbeard, a young Eva and Lumiere. Actor Christopher Gorham will also be coming on board, but what role he will play has been kept under wraps.
"Once Upon a Time" season 3 will return to ABC on March 9.
