'Riverdale' Star Lands Key Role on 'Once Upon a Time' Season 7

Tiera Skovbye is going from Polly Cooper on "Riverdale" to the older version of a familiar character on "Once Upon a Time."

According to TVLine, Skovbye has been cast as Robin -- the now grown daughter of Zelena and Robin Hood -- on "Once Upon a Time" Season 7. She's expected to debut in Episode 10, which is also the winter finale of the ABC show. According to executive producer Adam Horowitz, the Episode 10 title is "The Eighth Witch."

TVLine said Robin is described as "a strong-willed good girl turned rebel who is struggling to define her identity. As the daughter of powerful parents, she can never seem to escape their shadows, which drives her crazy. Tired of towing the line, Robin is ready to break out into the world and find her own adventure."

TVLine added that Robin will also be someone's love interest this year, although they didn't reveal the someone. Rebecca Mader is set to return as Zelena for several episodes this year, after she was initially not expected to be part of this "reboot" season.

This will be a recurring role for Skovbye, who also has the recurring role of Betty Cooper's sister Polly on The CW's "Riverdale." Since the two shows seem to film in the same area, she can probably do both without worrying too much for Polly. But you never know.

"Riverdale" Season 2 is currently airing Wednesdays on The CW, "Once Upon a Time" Season 7 airs Fridays on ABC.
