Irish Actress Sarah Bolger To Play Sleeping Beauty In US Drama
06 Jul 2012 :
Sarah Bolger
IFTA-winning Irish actress Sarah Bolger has been cast as Sleeping Beauty in major US drama, ‘Once Upon A Time’.

The Dublin-born 21-year-old will recur in the second season of the ABC fantasy drama as Princess Aurora, the Sleeping Beauty in the series, which is due to be aired this autumn. Last season ‘Once Upon a Time’ was the highest rating new drama on US television.

News of Bolger’s casting was first reported by TVLine and later confirmed by The Hollywood Reporter. Bolger (The Tudors, In America), who won an IFTA in 2010 for her performance in ‘The Tudors’, will star alongside Jamie Chung (The Hangover Part II) and Kristin Bauer van Straten (True Blood) in the series.

In fairy tale stories, Princess Aurora was put into a deep sleep when she touched the spindle of Maleficent’s spinning wheel and pricked her finger. She was brought back to life by the kiss of a prince. In ‘Once Upon a Time’, van Straten will play Maleficent.
