Happy birthday, Sarah Bolger!

The "Once Upon a Time" star turns 23 on Friday (Feb. 28). After a couple seasons, we still can't believe the ABC fairy tale show managed to find such a perfect Princess Aurora, a.k.a. Sleeping Beauty, in this Irish actress. So we decided to celebrate Bolger's big day by rounding up all the times she perfectly personified the Disney character ... in GIF form.

When she was woken up from her sleeping curse with true love's kiss:
