Lesley Sharp plays Rosalind in the Winx franchise, and she’s so deliciously evil you won’t be able to get enough of her character. If you’ve seen the latest Winx season, The Winx Story: Saving Alfea, then you know that Rosalind makes her first appearance when she convinces Queen Luna to convince her husband, King Oritel, to launch an attack on Alfea. It may seem like a small part now, but that’s because the story has yet to unfold. Lesley Sharp as Rosalind: The Winx Saga’s Tempting Fate

It was fate
When I first saw the trailer for Fate: The Winx Saga, I was intrigued. A show about fairies? Sign me up! I was not familiar with the original cartoon, but I was willing to give it a chance. Little did I know that this show would be so captivating. It has all of the drama and action you could ever want in an animated show, plus it is filled with romance and heartbreak. One of my favorite things about the show is that each episode starts out with one of my favorite fairy tale stories. These tales have been retold countless times in different ways, but seeing them come to life on this series had a whole new appeal. It was fate when I first found out about this series because I can’t stop watching it now!
A fresh look at an old tale
Once upon a time, there was a show called The Winx Saga that featured a group of young women with magical powers attending a school for fairies. One of the students, Lesley Sharp, had a secret agenda: to take over the school and rule it with an iron fist.
She was eventually thwarted, but not before she caused a lot of chaos and destruction. When asked about her involvement in the series by Twitter followers, Sharp seemed flattered but refused to comment on whether or not she would have taken up such a role in real life. I don’t know what I would have done, she said coyly. It is just acting.
She’s a witch! No, she isn’t…
Rosalind may not be a witch, but she’s definitely up to something in Fate: The Winx Saga. Played by Lesley Sharp, Rosalind is the former headmistress of Alfea who was ousted by Queen Luna. Now, she’s working with Luna’s son Andreas to take over the school again. But what exactly are their plans? And what does Rosalind have to do with it? We’ll have to wait and see…
Throughout her time on The Royals, Sharp has played various sinister characters, such as Laura Hargreaves on Casualty or DCI Vera Stanhope on Last Tango in Halifax. However, even though she has shown some evil tendencies so far in Fate: The Winx Saga , it isn’t clear whether Rosalind really is a bad guy after all.
I had so much fun as Rosalind
I loved playing the role of Rosalind in Fate: The Winx Saga. She’s a fascinating character who is always scheming and plotting. It was a lot of fun to play someone so devious! I also loved working with the other cast members and crew. Everyone was so talented and passionate about the show. I can’t wait to see what happens in season 2! I hope you enjoyed reading this blog post about Fate: The Winx Saga, which airs on Netflix now.
You can read more about the series on Netflix or Amazon Prime.
Stay tuned for more posts from me!
Anyone can be good or bad
Lesley Sharp is known for playing roles that teeter on the edge of morality, and her latest role as Rosalind in Fate: The Winx Saga is no different. While her character starts off seemingly good, it quickly becomes clear that she’s got a darkness lurking beneath the surface. As the headmistress of Alfea, Rosalind has the perfect opportunity to strike when Queen Luna and Andreas come to her with a plan to take over the school. She agrees to help them, but only if they can find the girls’ magical items—their four special powers—so they can’t use them against her. In one scene from episode five, The Rainbow Jewel, we see Rosalind go into Bloom’s room after Bloom falls asleep and steal Bloom’s emerald necklace. She then goes into Stella’s room to steal Stella’s ruby bracelet while she sleeps too!
There are good guys everywhere
The long-awaited live-action adaptation of Winx Club is finally here, and Lesley Sharp brings the villainous Rosalind to life.Rosalind is the former headmistress of Alfea who was ousted by Queen Luna. She now works with Andreas, the new headmaster, to try and take over the school again. It would be a better place without those meddlesome fairies, she says in one episode. However, despite her intentions, Rosalind can’t help but feel something for her former students as she watches them from afar.
What does being good mean anyway?
Fate, the latest young adult drama from Netflix, tells the story of six teenage girls who study at Alfea, a school for fairies. Lesley Sharp plays Rosalind, the former headmistress of Alfea who was ousted by Queen Luna. Now, she’s working with Luna’s son Andreas to take over the school again. But what does being good mean, anyway? Is it following the rules? Is it doing what’s best for others? Or is it something else entirely? On her show, Broadchurch, Sharpe starred opposite David Tennant and Olivia Colman in a crime drama that centered on how one murder affects the community around it. When we meet her character in this series, she is desperate to find out what happened when someone threw acid in her face; her need for vengeance has made her willing to do anything – even betray those close to her – in order to make sure that justice prevails.
