The fearsome Evil Queen and sinister Stepmother from the classic Cinderella storyline sit down to tell us about how the live action rendition of the fairy tale has grown over the past six years as well as give us the goods on what to expect in the sixth season of the show. Lana Parilla who portrays the dark hearted Queen livens up to describe some of the changes to come to the show not only with her character but also with a cherished co-star. The ultimate nagging mom is given to us in the form of Gabrielle Anwar describes the fun of playing Lady Tremaine a.k.a. Victoria Belfrey. The newest chapter of the storybook based drama is really shaping up to be quite a transformation from the usual bed time stories that we have known for the last 5 season of Once Upon a Time.
Regina Mills who is the real life portrayal of the Evil Queen will be more down to earth, says Parilla who also notes how the character will be a little more rugged and relaxed. Parilla also goes into the off screen dynamic between her and the Henry we saw in the past seasons, specifically how they watched the season finally together and that their strong relationship left big shoes for Andrew J. West to fill. Gabirelle Anwars starts off by completely bashing Lady Tremaine by calling her notoriously outrageous and overall unpleasant. Noting how the character is very British, Anwar tells us that the role is very therapeutic in that it’s fun to tap into that type of attitude that resents everything and everyone. Parilla agrees that the role is enjoyable because she can get away with some pretty ridiculous acts that she would never do off screen. It’s always good to hear that the actors have as much a good time as we do watching them at home so be sure to catch the newest season of Once Upon a Time.
