Rachel Weisz has revealed her role as the Wicked Witch of the East in Sam Raimi's Oz: The Great and Powerful, clearing up one of the mysteries that surrounds the film. While we knew that she is playing Evanora, and Mila Kunis is playing Theodora, there has long been some confusion as to which one of these lovely ladies will eventually succumb to a flying house falling on her head. Now we know. It will be Rachel Weisz who is killed off early in this fantasy adventure series (not a spoiler if you've seen The Wizard of Oz).

The actress recently spoke out about playing the evil witch, and revealed the personality and drive behind her character.

"It was a fun idea to be playing someone who is really, really bad. I can't think of any roles that I've had like that before... She's really, really a bad person »
