On Sunday night’s edition of “Once Upon a Time,” the new ABC hit is going to receive a visit from yet another villain — the “Sleeping Beauty” antagonist Malificent. To make matters ever more exciting, she is going to be played by someone who already knows a thing or two about playing sinister characters — “True Blood” actress Kristin Bauer van Straten.
Speaking in a new interview with TVLine, Kristin tries to explain how in a way the two shows are similar — and how she really doesn’t mind playing so many evil characters:
“It was really fun! True Blood fans and Once Upon a Time fans are similar because they’re similar types of shows; it’s a fantastical world that we can escape to. Can I just say that my evil-b—h typecasting is the most awesome thing and I hope it lasts forever. [Laughs] I also had so much fun with Lana Parrilla, who plays the Evil Queen. You never know when you go on a new show who you’re going to get along with, but with her it was just game on! We had a blast. I also got to do green screen work to a huge extent (see the photo above) and I can’t wait to see it put together.”
The actress also said that she would “love” to come back to the show at some point in future if they came calling — even though her schedule is going to be pretty full soon when it comes to reprising her role as the vampire Pam.
