'Once Upon a Time' Casts 'Lost' Alum as Iconic New Villain


Rebecca Mader


It looks like another 'Lost' alum will be dropping by Storybrooke in the very near future...but it won't be to try Granny's delicious food. According to E! News, 'Once Upon a Time' will welcome Rebecca Mader to its ranks as the show's new big bad wolf villain for a multi-episode arc when the spellbinding series returns from its winter hiatus in March.

Like so many 'Once' characters these days, the actress helms from the island of 'Lost' where she played the nosebleed queen (and all-too-brief love interest of Daniel Faraday), Charlotte. Maybe she, Belle, and Anton the Giant can all form some sort of book club together. That would be awesome.

But as for which iconic fairytale villain Mader will end up portraying, the network isn't least not to any of us. (Personally, we're hoping she's the Smoke Monster. What a twist that would be!)

Whatever her identity may be, though, viewers will know soon enough courtesy of a special promo that is scheduled to be released during 'OUAT's mid-season finale on Dec. 15. So get ready to have your mind blown because, apparently, you won't be able to see this jaw-dropping reveal coming.

But that doesn't mean we can't try! Sound off on which supernatural baddie you think Mader will portray in the comments below. Whoever ends up guessing correctly gets one million dollars. Just kiddding! (What am I, made of money?) You will, however, earn some major bragging rights, which is really just as good, isn't it? Let the speculation begin, dearies!

'Once Upon a Time' airs on Sundays at 8/7c on ABC.

Since they just cast Rapunzel, maybe she'll be Mother Gothel.
