'Frozen' Elsa look-alike goes viral
If you were a teenager who looked just like an animated movie character, what would you do?
For 18-year-old Anna Faith Carlson, who looks stunningly like Queen Elsa from "Frozen," the answer was obvious: start your own look-alike business!
It all began with a viral Instagram photo. Carlson writes, "sorry, had to." By the likes and comments, people are impressed.
Fox News has the story behind the photo. Carlson said her friend convinced her to take the initial viral photo: "She is like, 'You should definitely take a picture in front of this,' and, you know, I didn't feel like I looked good that day ... she said 'Just take the picture,' so I did."
As the Orlando Sentinel reports, the Daytona Beach teen now makes appearances with her sister, dressed as Elsa's sister Anna, at schools, birthday parties, and hospitals all in the name of a little princess magic. Judging by her more than 327,000 Instagram followers, that magic is contagious.
Sometimes, though, Carlson isn't a favorite of younger Frozen fans, telling ABC, "I remember going to the mall and this little girl started crying and I was like, 'Don't be scared.' Then her mom said, 'She thinks you are going to freeze her with your ice powers.'"
New York Daily News is reporting Carlson, a young actress and model, is seeking a role in ABC's "Once Upon A Time" series as Elsa -- and fans have rallied behind her. The character will appear in the hit show's upcoming fourth season, and Carlson won't "Let It Go" without a fight.
E! News reports the show is also looking to add two more Frozen characters to the cast next season, along with the ice queen. There's no confirmation on whether Carlson is being considered for the role of Elsa.
