True Blood’s Rebecca Wisocky to Join ABC’s Once Upon A Time

October 23, 2014

From Queen Mab to Madam Faustina:

Rebecca Wisocky starred as Queen Mab in HBOs True Blood Season 4In the fourth season of HBO’s True Blood, actress Rebecca Wiscocky starred as the sometimes beautiful, sometimes hideous Queen Mab, queen of the fairies. But now, it seems, she has set her sights on portraying a common charlatan in ABC’s Once Upon A Time. TVLine has this to report about Rebecca’s character, Madam Faustina:

Wisocky will appear in this season’s 10th episode as Madam Faustina, a charlatan who, in flashbacks, pretends to commune with spirits in order to swindle her customers by telling them made-up fortunes. Said “seer” exhibits a gentle, compassionate manner, but that is only an act designed to conceal her tough, unscrupulous nature from her marks.

Word has it that Elizabeth Mitchell’s Snow Queen will cross paths with Faustina — buyer (or seller?) beware!

Kristin Bauer van Straten to Reprise ‘Once Upon a Time’ Role

September 3, 2014

True Blood’s Pam Returns to OUAT as Maleficent:

Kristin Bauer van Straten to return as Maleficent in ABC's Once Upon a TimeWhile we will not get the chance to hear another new snarky remark from True Blood’s Pam, for Once Upon a Time fans, they will get to see actress Kristin Bauer van Straten reprise her role of Maleficent once more on their show.

In Season 1 of Once Upon a Time, Maleficent was held captive in dragon form in a cave underneath the clock tower. Then, in the Season 1 finale, she was killed by Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison). She did return at the end of Season 2 – but this time in zombie form! Now, as Season 4 approaches, according to Entertainment Weekly, Maleficent could return as the villain after the Frozen storyline pans out. Her character will return for a big story arc, so there is the possibility for OUAT fans to see some back story crop up for Kristin’s character. There is also the suggestion more of Aurora’s history will be revealed in Season 4.

Once Upon a Time returns Sept. 28 at 8 pm ET on ABC.

Kristin Bauer van Straten HBO promo S4

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.

Are you excited to see Kristin Bauer van Straten in a new, fantastical role?  Do you think that this may lead to her being typecast in “supernatural” roles?  Share your thoughts below!
