Very happy about this. Here is an article from TV Blend.
Once Upon A Time’s Meghan Ory Will Get To Play Ruby More Often In Season 2
Despite the success of Once Upon A Time at the network, Deadline is reporting Ory was shopping around when pilot season came about. This was likely due to the fact she was a minor character in Season 1, popping up often but only getting one meaty storyline to fully invest audiences into her character. While Ory began looking for other gigs, the show looked into what else could be done with the Ruby/ Red Riding Hood character. A couple of weeks ago, the network renewed Once Upon A Time for a second season, and now they’ve given Ory a bigger role on the show.
Ory has been upped to a regular character on the series, which means we will get to see much more of her in upcoming episodes. I’ve clearly already stated I am a huge fan, and I think adding yet another diverse and interesting female personality to an already female-dominated cast will just encourage me to watch the ridiculously over-dramatic and magical drama much more often. Bring on the wolves and witches, ABC.
