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!
