Meet The Queen of Today!

I’ve been cast at the Queen of Today. At this point in the production process I’ve had a discussion with the director, Dominic, about my character. To help me develop my character, I’ve decided to write this blog post from her perspective. So, please, let me introduce to you, The Queen of Today!

Greetings to you all, my beautiful friends!   My name is The Queen of Today. I thought it would be lovely to write to you  and tell you a little about myself, before we finally meet in Wonderland this  Christmas.  I was born in a faraway land, to a family of magic and of many girls! I am  one of thirteen sisters, and from a young age we all spent many a night  learning the ways of magic. I'm sure you know of my sisters; we have all  since grown up to become quite well renowned in the magical kingdoms.  One of my sisters, Glinda, made her way to the Munchkin Country of Oz.  I visited her not so long ago, and my, what a powerful Good Witch she has  grown up to be! Another of my sisters, who often played with frost magic as  a child, is now The Snow Queen. I’m sure there isn’t a tale told in which one  of my sisters hasn’t played her part, for good or…otherwise.  But enough about them, “What about you, oh beautiful one?” I hear you  ask. Well, I made my way here, to Wonderland, where I am crowned the  Queen of Today. I've been made to feel so welcome by the Wonderlanders,  however, I am not the only queen here; there is another, the Queen of  Hearts. Perhaps you’ll meet her too.  I should warn you however; my Wonderland is not what it once was, nor  am I for that matter. A great power has spread over the land and we are  caught in an eternal winter. It is cold and time has been meddled with. I  have heard whisper of the villainous Jack Frost and Icy Jill. There have also  been whisperings, however, of a hero! A hero I hope will come and save us  from this winter and bring Wonderland back to its former glory.  It will be a great pleasure to welcome you to Wonderland this Christmas.  I cannot wait to see you. Until then, I bid you farewell.    Stay Wonderful! The Queen of Today.
