You're waiting for the perfect first sentence, but no story is perfect. It just needs a start.
—Lucy to Henry src

Lucy, also known as Little Girl, is a character on ABC's Once Upon a Time. She débuts in the twenty-first episode of the sixth season. She is portrayed by starring cast member Alison Fernandez.


After Fourth Curse

After the final battle between Emma and Gideon, Henry leaves Storybrooke for another realm, where he meets and falls in love with Cinderella. They eventually have a daughter: Lucy. ("The Final Battle Part 1", "The Final Battle Part 2", "Hyperion Heights")

In the New Enchanted Forest, during a time of upheaval, Henry is chased to his hideout where Lucy is staying. Lucy is frightened by the urgency, but Henry tells her to take her book and keep it safe. She swears to protect it with her life but is assured that it will not come to that. Henry kisses her on the head before she runs off through a back exit and he goes to fight off the intruders. Later, Lucy returns to the ruins of this shack and searches for her father but cannot find him. She is visited by Tiger Lily, a fairy, who insists that Lucy did the right thing as the book is very important and she must share the stories inside of it. Lucy doesn't think anyone will believe her, but Tiger Lily promises someone will. Tiger Lily also reveals to a distraught Lucy that the fairies have seen the future and know that Lucy and Henry will be reunited, however, the future is unclear and she cannot confirm that they will be alright, just that they will be reunited. She then tells Lucy to go find her mother. ("The Final Battle Part 1", "The Final Battle Part 2")

During Fifth Curse

At an unknown point in time, a curse brings Lucy and her mother, now known as Jacinda, live in the neighborhood of Hyperion Heights in Seattle. Lucy remembers her father Henry and is aware her stepgrandmother Victoria is responsible for the separation as well as everyone's cursed memories. She obtains a copy of Henry's book, "Once Upon a Time", which contains real stories of Henry's family, although Henry himself believes it is just fiction. Deciding to seek out her father even though he has no memory of her, she sneaks out to board a train and arrives at his apartment doorstep. She readies herself by knocking on the door, and when a man answers, she asks if he is Henry Mills. When he confirms this, she introduces herself as his daughter, though, due to the curse, he believes he doesn't have a daughter; however, she insists he does and that his family needs him. ("The Final Battle Part 2", "Hyperion Heights")

In Henry's apartment, Lucy regards his shoddy and unkempt home, noting that despite that he is her favorite author, he hasn't had much success. She tries to persuade him that everything he wrote in his book actually happened to him and his family, and insists he returns to Hyperion Heights with her to rescue them from a curse, including her mom, who was his true love Cinderella. Due Henry does not buy her story and unceremoniously tells her to go home. Lucy does go, however, she secretly swipes Henry's laptop and leaves him a sticky note requesting that he meet her at Roni's in Hyperion Heights. While attempting to make a wish at a wishing well in an abandoned lot, she is found by Jacinda, who reprimands her for her disappearing act. Lucy tells her mother about finding a quarter at the well and how she has taken it to be a sign that change is just around the corner. Jacinda allows her to toss the coin in before ushering her to hurry up so she's not late for ballet class. After being questioned by her mother about where she was, Lucy confesses to going to find Henry. Jacinda then takes Henry's stolen laptop and returns it to him at Roni's. Meanwhile, Lucy is in the lot sprinkling hyacinth seeds in the soil beds when Henry confronts her for causing his car to be stolen, but she denies it. She tries to stop him from leaving for good, insisting that he has cursed memories and that is why he doesn't remember her as his daughter and her mother as his wife. Lucy suggests the reason why he also has been unable to write anything is that he doesn't believe in the truth yet, however, Henry simply apologizes and departs. When Victoria announces her intentions of seizing custody of Lucy, Jacinda attempts to prevent this by taking her daughter to Bainbridge Island so they can have a fresh start together. Jacinda's car breaks down during the trip, which Lucy points out is because of the curse, but an undeterred Jacinda has her walk with her instead. After Lucy refuses to go, her mother reveals her desire to not be separated from her if Victoria becomes her permanent guardian. Lucy's main concerns rest on Henry and breaking the curse, but Jacinda asks to put aside her imaginative thinking and believe in her just this once. Lucy agrees, and as she and her mother hug, Officer Rogers and Jacinda's stepsister Ivy show up to retrieve Lucy. Much to the girl's protestations, Ivy takes Lucy's copy of Henry's book and asks Rogers to dispose of it, before ushering her niece into the car with her. ("Hyperion Heights")

Lucy later has a ballet recital, which her step-grandmother turns into a charity event as an excuse to charge for tickets so that Jacinda cannot attend. However, thanks to the help of Henry and Sabine, Jacinda manages to get a job as a caterer for the recital and is reunited with her daughter at the event. Lucy is delighted not only to see her mother but also to learn Henry was involved, as she hopes it means he is starting to believe. ("A Pirate's Life")

Character Notes

  • During the present events of Season Seven, Lucy is 10 years old.[2]
    • However, by some occasions, the show creators stated that she is nine.[3]

Production Notes

  • The casting call describes her as "a precocious 10-year-old with a 'constant twinkle of mischief in her eye'. And though this girl comes from a broken home, those struggles have only made her stronger — something which will come in handy when darkness threatens 'everything she holds dear'. She 'never lets the hard knocks of life get her down'".[4]
