Karen David, who stars in Galavant, will portray Princess Jasmine in season 6 of Once Upon A Time. The news broke just hours after a teaser video revealed that Aladdin and Jafar will appear in the new season. Deniz Akdeniz will play Aladdin, while Oded Fehr is cast as Jafar.
The teaser video is actually the opening to season 6, which means fans will see Aladdin and Jafar right away. Princess Jasmine, however, will make her first appearance in episode 4.
Viewers are excited to see Karen David on the show. During an event on Reddit, a fan asked Karen if she would ever audition for Once Upon A Time. She replied, “I would love to be on the show! If they ever want Esmerelda, or Pocahontas, or Jasmine from Aladdin to come on, I’d LOVE to do it! Xo.” Since then, fans hoped to see Karen on the show, and now it’s actually happening!
