Former Hollyoaks actress Emma Rigby is certainly enjoying her acting career in the US, where she plays the important role of the Red Queen in the ABC series Once Upon a Time in Wonderland. Emma has opened up about the show, discussing the relationship between the Red Queen and Alice.
Rigby told BuddyTV, "It's really interesting because you'll see throughout the series, I don't have a lot of interaction with Alice. To the Red Queen, it's a game to her. Alice is just another person in the game of what she wants to achieve. It's not necessarily a vendetta against Alice."
She added, "Alice is just an annoyance, really, and standing in her way and she's quite blase about that. That's an interesting thing as well. It's not necessarily like the Queen of Hearts which wants to destroy Alice. She's not her main concern. She has a much bigger thing to achieve."
You can catch Emma Rigby, in her new role of the Red Queen, in Once Upon a Time in Wonderland season 1, which airs on ABC on Thursday evenings at 8pm ET.
