It looks like “Once Upon a Time” (premiering October 23) is going to get a new cast member who happens to know more than a little bit already about playing a supernatural character.
In news that was first reported by NiceGirlsTV, Kristin Bauer van Straten (better known as the vampire cast) has been brought on board the Jennifer Morrison-led series as Maleficent — who is going to be more than a little bit evil if she is anything like what she was in the “Snow White” movies. While it is originally billed as a guest-starring role, there is potential here for it to go recurring over time.
This show is certianly one of the most ambitious additions to the ABC lineup this fall, and it certainly has to hope to become one of the few new dramas to actually see substantial ratings (especially after the disappointments out there like “Prime Suspect” and “The Playboy Club”).
