Ruthless pirate Black Beard, played by New Zealander Charles Mesure, also makes a comeback in an upcoming episode, in which he becomes fully immersed in Frozen happenings.
“Blackbeard gets to beat up the cast of Frozen,” says Mesure, who has also been juggling US series Girlfriend’s Guide to Divorce. “Lots of fun!”
Once creators/executive producers Eddie Kitsis and Adam Horowitz hope Mesure and fellow Kiwi Rose McIver (Tinker Bell) will continue to make appearances on the series.
McIver is now busy starring on TV2’s iZombie, but hopes to return when scheduling allows.
“Rose is great and such a strong Tinker Bell, so we loved her,” says Horowitz. “And Charles just brings that Black Beard swagger. He’s fantastic.
“We’d love to keep having them back – and we want to do better in New Zealand!”
