Lana Parrilla Promises More Humanity And Backstory For The Evil Queen


I have a wonderful Once Upon A Time spoiler to pass along concerning the next few episodes of the ABC fairy-tale drama. Lana Parrilla reveals that her badder than bad character has more to her story than meets the eye and fans will get to see more of her humanity in upcoming episodes.

“There’s a couple of episodes coming up where you’ll see a more vulnerable side to her and there’s one that hasn’t even been scripted yet, but there’s word that you’ll see more of her backstory – how she became evil and why,” Lana told Access Hollywood. “I kind of knew it from the beginning. It’s kind of interesting. I tapped into it when I was doing my own work on the Queen, and then I shared it with [creators] Adam [Horowitz] and Eddie [Kitsis] and they were like, ‘How did you know that?’ And I said, ‘What are you talking about?’ and they said, ‘That’s exactly what we were thinking, we we’re going down that road.’ I’m like ‘Oh my God! We’re in sync. This is awesome!’” Lana went on to recount. “It’s just a matter of time for that story to be told… You’ll definitely, by the end of the season, learn more about her backstory and see a more [softer] side, that, I think will – the audience is just really going to understand why she hates Snow and why she’s so heartbroken."
