"Once Upon A Time In Wonderland"- Emma Rigby Is The 'Red Queen'

Brit actress Emma Rigby ("Hollyoaks") has joined ABC’s "Once Upon A Time" Vancouver-lensed spinoff, now titled "Once Upon A Time In Wonderland", from "Once Upon A Time" series creators Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz, set in 'pre-curse Wonderland':

"...the story is told through the point of view of 'Alice' (Sophie Lowe) who has a generous heart but carries the scars of a long hard life. She is joined by 'Cyrus' (Peter Gadiot), Alice’s love interest, and the 'Knave of Hearts' (Michael Socha), a sardonic adventurer..."

Rigby will play the 'Red Queen', a character based on the playing card that originated in the novel "Through The Looking Glass" by "Alice In Wonderland" author Lewis Carroll. In the book, the Red Queen aka 'Iracebeth', has a short temper and is merciless against her enemies and those who have betrayed her.
