Australian actress Georgina Haig has been chosen to play Elsa from "Frozen" on ABC’s "Once Upon A Time."

The show’s co-creator Adam Horowitz made the announcement on his Twitter account, welcoming Haig to the show by saying, "Thrilled to have you join the #OnceUponATime family."

Haig played Etta Bishop on the Fox sci-fi show "Fringe" and currently plays Lee Anne on "Reckless" on CBS.

She returned Horowitz’s welcome with a tweet, already getting into her icy role.

The fact that "Frozen’s" Elsa would join the show was revealed at the very end of the "Once" third season.

“We are very well aware of how beloved [Frozen] is, so we’re very careful that we want to tell a story that is uniquely ours but also honors those characters that everyone fell in love with this past year,” Horowitz told TVLine.

Elizabeth Lail and Scott Michael Foster have been cast to play Anna and Kristoff in “Once Upon A Time,” TVLine reported earlier.

The complex Elsa character, sometimes referred to as a quasi-villain, fits right in with the television show, co-creator Eddy Kitsis told TVLine.

“The thing we love about Elsa is she is perceived to be a villain but is clearly misunderstood, and that goes to the heart of our show,” he said.

The introduction of “Frozen” characters to “Once Upon A Time” has a lot of fans excited.

“Once Upon A Time” will be back for its fourth season in the fall.
