Rose McGowan is about to go back in time (cue Huey Lewis and the News).

The “Charmed” alum will portray a younger version of Cora on “Once Upon a Time” on ABC.

A season two origin episode will be centered on Cora, who is Regina’s evil mother and played by Barbara Hershey.

The show often jumps back using flashbacks to its fairy tale world. This device shows Storybrooke characters’ backstories.

McGowan, who has appeared on “Nip/ Tuck” and in the recent “Conan the Barbarian” remake, is represented by APA and Untitled Entertainment.

McGowan also appeared in “Scream,” “The Black Dahlia” and Robert Rodriguez’s “Grindhouse”- “Planet Terror” and Quentin Tarantino’s “Grindhouse”- “Death Proof.”

The actress suffered serious injuries in an auto accident in 2007, when her eyeglasses sliced her under her eye. She seems to be back on her feet these days, however.

Hershey appeared in “The Natural,” “Hannah and Her Sisters,” “Hoosiers” and “Beaches.” She famously changed her stage name to “Seagull” for a time in the 70s, but eventually reverted back to Hershey.

“Once Upon a Time” will also take part in next year’s PaleyFest. The show returns to ABC Sunday, Jan. 6, at 8 p.m. ET.

this is my third attempt at trying to articulate nicely how rose mcgowan does not belong,on our sreens. So here goes, she ruined charmed I see the same happening to once a upon a time YOU have a great thing going on PLEASE dont let her ridiculous facial expressions and her try hard(with no success)acting ability. however, if you must cast her let it be a ten second cameo in the last episode of the series. PS 10sec is generous

Once Upon A Time has had a great story line so far this season, if not a bit complicated. I can’t wait to find out more about Cora became the evil Queen of Hearts. My coworker at DISH and I love the show, and think Rose McGowan will be perfect to play Cora at a young age. I can’t miss an episode or I’ll feel totally lost. Thankfully I’ve been recording this season to my DISH Hopper so I don’t miss anything. It has PrimeTime Anytime which will record the shows from the four major networks automatically, plus two more channels, during primetime. My family doesn’t run into DVR conflicts when we can record six channels at once.
