tinker bell regina once upon a time season 3 'Once Upon a Time' first look at Rose McIver as Tinker Bell“Once Upon a Time” fans are in for a wild ride in Season 3, as the main band of heroes and villains are united in a quest to save Henry from Neverland and the clutches of a dark-sounding Peter Pan.

Naturally, one of the new character is Neverland fairy Tinker Bell, played by Rose McIver. TV Guide has a first-look photo at Tink, whom EP Edward Kitsis says is “very strong, a lot of fun and not afraid to go out and have a few shots. And although her heart is usually in the right place, she is mischievous.”

Have a few shots? Can we expect to see Tinker Bell fluttering around as a barfly?

The above preview photo certainly gives us some interesting insight — that’s Tink with a young-looking Regina back in Fairytale Land, so presumably we’ll get some Tinker Bell flashbacks as well as seeing her in present day Neverland, perhaps? We wonder if she’ll pop up in Storybrooke as well.

“Once Upon a Time” premieres Sunday, Sept. 29 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
