During an interview with EW Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz talked about Liz’s role on the show. [SPOILER ALERT]
There’s been a lot of guesses for Elizabeth Mitchell’s character, whether Elsa and Anna’s mom survived that sea voyage, or perhaps that she’s playing the original Snow Queen. Anything you can tell us?
Kitsis: It’s one of the two things you mentioned!
Horowitz: We’ll find Elizabeth Mitchell’s character is connected both to the world of Arendelle and the world of Storybrooke.
Since both their shows were canceled, people were hoping for the casting of Mitchell and Josh Holloway, both Lost alum, which seemed like a pipe dream. But then you cast one of them! So I should ask: Any chance of Josh joining too?
Horowitz: He’s not in mind for this particular arc, but someday, if the time were right and he were willing and we had the right thing—we’d have to have absolutely the perfect thing, and he’d have to be willing. Josh has no bigger fans than us. We had so much fun writing for him.
