Once Upon a Time is gender-bending the fairytale character Jack – the role will be played by Cassidy Freeman. Check out these images from the episode “Tiny.”

Sadly, Once Upon a Time is on a short break right now, but when it returns February 10, it is with what looks to be a fantastic episode! 2×13 “Tiny” will not only bring back Lost star Jorge Garcia as Anton the Giant, but will also introduce Jack the Giant Killer, who in an interesting twist will be played by Smallville actress Cassidy Freeman.

TV Line has posted these two images from the episode that show the characters getting on surprisingly well – and they’re the same size, too:

The episode description reads:

Kidnapped and brought to Storybrooke by Cora, the Giant (Jorge Garcia) unleashes his vengeance on the town when a case of mistaken identity leads him to try and settle an old score with David; Mr. Gold, accompanied by Emma and Henry, attempts to depart Storybrooke – hoping to keep his memory intact when he crosses the town line — and heads to the airport in search of his son Bae; and Greg (Ethan Embry) questions Belle as to what she saw on the night of his car accident. Meanwhile, in the fairytale land that was and against his brothers’ wishes, Anton, the Giant, climbs down the beanstalk and attempts to befriend some humans – whose intentions may not be so noble.

Are you looking forward to see how they’ll change up the story of Jack and the Beanstalk? Do you think she’s the one who turns Anton into a giant in the first place?

Once Upon a Time returns February 10 at 8/7c on ABC.

    I love the gender swap. It’s like Elementary with Watson. It brings in a new element that can change certain aspects of the stories that we know.

    I’m not sure how I feel about them making Jack a woman yet…I’d have to see the episode first. I love Cassidy Freeman though and I believe she can do great with the role!

    OMG! This is a total surprise! I LOVE Cassidy Freeman since Smallville! Her TVD’s character was awesome and if it wasn’t for the pictures I wouldn’t believed she would be on OUAT!!! And as if it couldn’t get better, she will be JACK! This is great! Also if I remeber correctly, when Emma and Hook went to the Giant, didn’t he told them about Jack?

    This means Jack is probably the name of her sword, as was shown in the episode where we first met the giant. The name Jack was engraved on the sword.

    Jack could be short for Jackie or Jacquelyn, anywho she looks awesome and I’m looking forward to this

    This show tries so hard to show women can fight too, that the guys barely do any fighting……. its getting annoying in that aspect

      dude wher have you been?? charming does a lot of fighting . Hook does some fighting and Mr.Gold is a straight up murderer. It’s not about showing women can fight too it’s about who is willing to fight for who and what they love and more importantly the epic age old battle of good vs evil !! Not a male female thing . It’s not trying to hard it’s passionate . Relax and enjoy the show don’t try so hard to read between the lines lines that ain’t even there. :)

    Jack’s a girl?! That’s kinda weird.
