CINDERELLA / JACINDA
Think you know Cinderella? Well you've never seen her like this. Full of spunk and grit, she's hardly sitting around waiting for her prince. This girl's got problems and she'll solve them on her own, thank you very much. Just toss her a sword and watch out for her mean right hook. Her biggest problem right now? Bringing her stepmother, Lady Tremaine, to justice for all the horrible things that she's done -- least of which was making Ella's life a living hell. In Hyperion Heights, we find Ella (now Jacinda) in a much more traditional Cinderella situation – trapped by economic circumstances that her stepmother (Victoria Belfrey) created. Jacinda struggles every day just to free herself from that wicked woman's control and to protect and provide for her spirited daughter, Lucy. That is until a stranger named Henry Mills walks into her life and makes Jacinda think that maybe she might be able to find some happiness of her own ... if she's willing to let herself.
