The Evil Queen's mother!

Ah! Time to see if the poisoned apple didn't fall to far from the tree!

She's probably known best to all of you for her role in Black Swan, but Barbara Hershey is an icon in her own right. That's why, we were thrilled to hear that the Academy Award nominee has been asked to guest star on the new hit ABC show Once Upon a Time this season.

She will be playing the role of Regina/the Evil Queen’s mother, Cora — and while we don't know what kind of woman she'll actually be, we do know that if her character is well received, there is an offer on the table for her to return to the show next season for a short arc.

Nice! Let's keep our fingers crossed that her role is juicy enough to entice audiences!

    once upon a time is a show i am trying to give the benefit of the doubt…. but nothing ever happens on it. I can't handle it, in this whole first season: boy finds mother, boy has theory about everyone in town, one dude dies, one other dude shows up in town unexpectedly. Done, whole show right there. They really need to speed it up because it is so booooring to watch. Let me predict the episode with this biddie ^ in it….: evil queen mother shows up, evil queen gets all angry pants about it. SOmeone almost finds out that they are a fairy tale character… but don't actually end up finding out in the end. DONE

    Perez you're an idiot.She's best known for her roles in Beaches with Bette Midler and The Entity not The Black Swan.
    @Meeeeeep- You're the only idiot to saw that it's boring to watch. If it's "sooooooo boring" then don't watch it. :D problem solved.

    I love this show! Knowing ABC they will cancel it within a season though, cause that's what they do…

    I saw The Black Swan and didn't even know she was Natalie character's mother until now; she's best known for Beaches.

    Re: Meeeeeep – No one is forcing you to watch the show.

    If you don't like it, change the channel.

    Re: MJfan1 – I probably will stop watching it eventually. But that's why I said I"m trying to give it the benefit of the doubt", I love the show's concept and I really want to be interested by it, but urg.. it's just so… meh. Nothing has really happened.
    P.s., I have never heard of either of those movies you said, but I have heard of Black Swan

    Holy crap, she needs to get a new Dr to inject her face. It looks horrible.

    Interesting for her to do this. Heck she looks kinda young to be Regina's mother. I love the show. And I loved it the first night it aired. I'd like to see how they will develop this character. Yeah she is known for Beaches and I believe she was with David Carraidine
    back in the day. Good show.
