|Real Life Tinkerbell by Jirka Vinse|
While the addition of Tinkerbell to the cast shouldn't be a surprise for anyone who saw the fairy tale characters heading for Neverland as the credits closed Season 2, the way she'll appear and what types of other Neverland characters there will be, might.

From TV Guide:
Tinker Bell's Turn
"Clap your hands if you believe in fairies, Once Upon a Time fans! And if you clap loudly enough, you might just get to meet Tinker Bell. With the action moving from Storybrooke to Neverland in Season 3, Peter Pan's favorite fairy is expected to play a significant role. In keeping with Once tradition, viewers will discover that Tink shares a surprising connection to one of the regulars. I do believe in fairies! I do! I do!"And it looks like she might be making an appearance at ComicCon this week/end too.
Back in 2010 with a live action movie, Tink, a possibility it looked like Elizabeth Banks was going to play Tink (we already had Julia Roberts in Hook, remember way back when?) but we adore Tina Fey as Tinkerbell (care of Annie Leibovitz - see image near end of post) even more.
Who will it be? Is it Tamara? Grumpy & Nova's secret fairy child? Someone completely new?
We'll just have to wait and see...
While news of Tink's arrival is exciting, the question remains-will she be a good fairy or will she take on a darker side like Peter Pan has in the "Once" universe?
With the cast moving to Neverland in the third season, fans will not only get to meet Tink but a slew of other Neverland fairytale characters.
As earlier reported, ABC is casting the roles of Peter Pan and Rufio (the teenage leader of the Lost Boys). According toTVLine, Rufio is described "as forever youthful, mischievous and harboring a penchant for clever games-but behind his playful façade lurks a petulant child twisted enough to destroy anyone who crosses his path."Hmm.
