‘Once Upon a Time’ sneak peek: Amy Acker guest stars as a fairy (Video)

A brand new episode airs tonight

All of the ‘Once Upon a Time’ fans out there are rejoicing today as the hit ABC series is returning to prime-time tonight after a bit of a break.

Tonight’s episode should be a lot of fun as former ‘Angel’ actress Amy Acker is guest starring as a clumsy fairy in a very pink dress who is in charge of collecting all of the fairy dust in the land.  Acker spoke to TV Line about her pink costume saying that she ‘gasped’ when she first laid eyes on it.  She said; “[It’s] very pink!…. When I saw [it], I was just like, ‘GASP! – I get to wear that?’”

One of the best parts of acting on a series like ‘Once Upon a Time’ is that you really get two roles on the show since the plot is mirrored between two worlds, the fairy tale world and the real world in the town of Storybrooke, so landing a gig on a show like this is a fun challenge for any actor.  In the fairy tale world Acker will be playing the role of a fairy in training who desperately wants to advance and become a fairy godmother, but because of her klutzy nature she is being held back from her drea.  Back in Storybrooke she plays a nun named Astrid that Leroy does everything he can to help out.

ABC released a sneak peek of tonight’s episode where we get to see Acker’s pink fairy getting some advice from the blue fairy (Keegan Connor Tracy) and realizing that her dream of becoming a fairy god mother may never be reached.

Check out the promo video and let us know if you are excited that ‘Once Upon a Time’ is back.  Will you be tuning in tonight?
