Tutto è bene quel che finisce bene: dopo anni di – più o meno – onorata carriera, cala il sipario su C’era una volta e sui suoi fiabeschi eroi. La serie della ABC, iniziata nell’ottobre 2011, si chiuderà infatti con la settima stagione; la reazione dei membri del cast alla cancellazione non si è fatta attendere, e presto i social media si sono popolati delle testimonianze e dei commossi ringraziamenti degli attori coinvolti nello show.

La prima a parlare è stata Lana Parrilla, interprete della Regina, che ha postato una foto su Instagram corredandola di una lunga didascalia in cui ha ringraziato i colleghi di set, lo studio e soprattutto i fan, che hanno garantito alla serie una longevità nient’affatto scontata.

I’ll never forget the day I walked in to audition as Evil Queen Regina for Eddy and Adam. I was wearing all black (of course) and had this crazy, dreadlock looking wrap draped over my shoulders. I had no idea where this pilot was going to go but I knew it was something special. I walked out of the audition room and down the hall was an old photograph of the OG Evil Queen herself. I knew then, something magical was about to begin. It’s been 7 years now and I couldn’t be prouder of what we all have created. Adam and Eddy had this crazy idea in their minds years ago and it turned into a fantastical phenomenon. This show has touched so many people’s lives, changed them for the better, has inspired us to grow in ways we never could’ve imagined. It’s brought hope, joy, friendships and love to so many. I am lucky and blessed to have been a part of it for 7 years. I want to thank the cast, our incredibly, hard working crew and the writers for your dedication and hard work over the years. Thank you to the studio and network for believing in us, supporting us and giving us a home to tell our stories. But most importantly, I want to thank our fans. We honestly wouldn’t be here without your love, support and loyalty to ONCE. Thank you for standing by us all of these years. We hope we’ve made you proud and that the magic this show has brought in to your lives never dies. Thank you for all you’ve given back to us in return and always remember to keep that magic alive. Signed with love, respect, gratitude and honor, Lana ❤️ #OUAT 🙏

Anche Jennifer Morrison, interprete della protagonista Emma Swan, ha voluto omaggiare degnamente la serie che le ha dato notorietà (dopo la sua partecipazione a Dr. House), ringraziando i creatori Adam Horowitz ed Edward Kitsis e paragonando i fan dello show (soprannominati “oncers”) a dei veri e propri eroi nel suo “libro personale”.

Ecco il post di addio di Dania Ramirez, la Cenerentola della serie:
