* AwesomeDearBoy:
** As noted above, David Anders signed on when he was told [[spoiler: he was actually playing Dr Frankenstein]].
** Rebecca Mader was a huge fan of the show and claims she screamed in public when she was offered a role. She agreed before she even knew which role it was.
** Merrin Dungey likewise immediately agreed to move to Vancouver to film and dye her hair blonde, as she had been a big fan of ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'' - and jumped at the chance to play Ursula.
** Georgina Haig had a reaction like this to being cast as Elsa. She describes walking around in the costume as "like being Santa Claus".



** Nicole Munoz was twenty when she played Lily at 16.

to:

** Nicole Munoz was twenty when she played Lily at 16. And since the show is a little vague on how much time has passed since the first episode, the adult Lily is this too. There's a seven year age gap between Agnes Bruckner and Jennifer Morrison, despite their characters supposedly being the same age.


Added DiffLines:

** Peter Pan's age is vague, but he's meant to be an eternal little boy. Robbie Kaye was eighteen.


Added DiffLines:

* TheOtherMarty: Paula Marshall was first cast as Maleficent, but was later replaced by Kristen Bauer von Straten.


Added DiffLines:

** Sidney was PutOnABus in Season 2, due to Giancarlo Esposito being too busy with ''Revolution''. TheBusCameBack briefly in Season 4.

Added DiffLines:

** Peter Pan is one of the most horrible characters on the show. Robbie Kay is very friendly and laid back.
** Cora is the reason Regina is evil and makes her look nice at times. When Barbara Hershey had a scene in "Sisters" that required her to shout at the actress playing Young Regina she hugged the girl afterwards.
