I wouldn’t want Belle to be pure fairy. If they wanted to go the route of Tink being her mother, I think they’d have to concoct some story about Tink having been with Mo somehow at some point. On the one hand, that may have to be sort of convoluted and hard to believe. On the other hand, the guy who hates fairies with a passion having a true love with fairy DNA, could be sort of cool if they did find a believable way to do it.
One thing I’m pretty sure of though, they won’t have Emilie playing a dual role, and I think some of this “Tink as Belle’s mother” stuff stemmed from people thinking that a blonde Emilie would look very Tink-ish. But we got a casting call that’s almost definitely for Tink, which they wouldn’t have had if Emilie would just play both.
Unless we’re all totally off track with that Violet casting call being for Tink and it was Ariel instead, but it didn’t really sound like Ariel.
Speaking of Ariel, I wonder if the actress who played her in the SDCC trailer is the REAL Ariel or just a stand in. I don’t expect that we’ll see a casting call for her.
Well, something about that promo piece made me think it was probably similar to what they did for Hook–it was probably just some random actor to stand-in so they could tease this, especially as they said she’d be in NL, but the scene was clearly SB.
So we know both Ariel and Tink are showing up, but we’ve only seen one casting call–could be because Ariel won’t come until much later, maybe second half of year, but if they intro her similar to when they brought in Hook, shouldn’t she already be cast or cast soon? It could be a back-door casting thing where they knew who they wanted and approached them, rather than a big widespread call too.
“If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?” -- Lewis Carroll, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking-Glass
There was the rumoured Ariel casting call from a little while back, though that leak was never actually confirmed.
Hook showed up in ep4 after being promo’d in the same way Ariel was. If Ariel is gonna end up being Regina’s mermaid problem, she may well appear in the ep3 Regina centric which they’ll be shooting soon. They could show her part in Regina’s story in flashback, then we could end the ep in present day with Ariel seeing Regina in NL and dun, dun, duuuunnnnnn.
If Ariel’s gonna be in NL in present day, I’m not sure how they could be wandering around there for any length of time and not run into her, so even if not in ep3, I imagine she’ll still be introduced near the start of the season, which likely means that her casting is well under way, if not already a done deal.
Would they introduce Tink and Ariel in the same episode? If Rumple has had dealings with Ariel before (if she has the other mirror, perhaps) then they might wait until 304
