Kristin Bauer van Straten revealed via her Twitter account that she was heading to Vancouver to film an episode for ABC’S “Once Upon a Time.”  According to, “Once Upon a Time” is set in Storybrooke, a New England town full of fairytale characters who have forgotten who they are and have been thrust into the modern world.  While she didn’t give away too many details, she did mention getting ready for the role (and who she will play!) on Tuesday:

“Just got to Vancouver & had fantastical wardrobe fitting! Not sure Maleficent’s future But the present is pretty fun!”’s Meg Masters also revealed that Bauer will appear in the series’ second episode which will air on October 30th.  She will be joining a list of regulars from other shows who will be making one-episode appearances.  So, not to worry, Truebies!  Her cameo does not suggest that Vampire Pam will be going anywhere any time soon.  Though information is light, fans won’t have long to wait before seeing her take a scene-stealing turn on another supernatural show.

When talking about her Ides of March co-star Ryan Gosling, she muses that he may be this generation’s James Dean:

“There’s something really special here. It’s that striking. I think he’s the James Dean of now. And he’d better kiss my ass for saying that.”

Wood also shows her lighter side, discussing a recent YouTube video that popped up with her covering Justin Bieber:

“I was in China randomly — I know, it’s already weird [laughs] — and I’m a big karaoke fan and I also love Justin Bieber unashamedly.”

She mentions that she also made a Janis Joplin video.  Wood goes on to talk about her love of making music and while it’s always been a personal passion, it may become something she’s interested in pursuing publicly in the future.  It seems that she may join the rank of actors who are a double force in the creative world!
