Like many of her Australian peers before her, Sophie Lowe is making the leap to American TV primetime in the new show Once Upon a Time in Wonderland, which is a spin-off from the popular fairytale show Once Upon a Time. Sophie plays Alice (and kind of resembles another famous Aussie Alice portrayer, Mia Wasikowska), who has been thrown into a mental institute by her father because she said she visited Wonderland, where she met and fell in love with a genie named Cyrus, and stumbled across the many things we’ve come to know of that wondrous land, including the White Rabbit and hookah-smoking Catepillar.
It has been revealed that Once Upon a Time in Wonderland’s first episode will open in Storybrooke, the fictional town in which Once Upon a Time is set. And while there will be crossover between the two shows, there won’t be too much — at least that’s the plan for now. The show has been picked up by US network ABC and Channel Seven screens Once Upon a Time in Australia, so there’s a good chance they’ll pick up this series, too. Watch the trailer and see Sophie as a fairytale heroine after the break.
