The Evil Queen Shares Big Changes on "Once Upon a Time"


As “Once Upon a Time” returns to ABC for its seventh season with the residents of the enchanted forest facing their greatest challenge yet. The Evil Queen, Captain Hook and Rumpelstiltskin join forces with a grown-up Henry Mills and his daughter Lucy on an epic quest to bring hope to their world and ours. The Evil Queen herself-- played by Lana Parrilla-- joined us to share a few of the big changes coming to the show this season.

In the season premiere episode, Henry leaves Storybrooke in search of his own story. Years later in another realm, he encounters a troubled Cinderella, changing the trajectory of his quest forever. When Cinderella’s evil step-mother, Lady Tremaine, poses a threat, Henry discovers that following his heart will require him to make more difficult choices than he ever could have imagined. Years later, a young Lucy finds a disillusioned Henry at his home in Seattle, determined to make him remember his true self in order to defeat the curse afflicting the fairytale characters of “Hyperion Heights.”
