JoAnna Garcia Swisher provides examples of the following tropes:

  • Ability over Appearance: She is a full eighteen years older than Disney's Ariel, being 33 when she first played her in Once Upon a Time. But it's hard to imagine an actress who can capture Ariel's optimism, clumsiness and quirky attitude in live-action better than she can.
  • Irony as She Is Cast: She cannot actually swim in real life despite playing an iconic mermaid.
