Academy Award nominee Barbara Hershey has been cast in ABC’s Once Upon a Time in the very important role of the Evil Queen’s mother. I know it’s a weird concept. How could someone as evil as the Evil Queen (just look at her name!) have such a human concept such as parents? How could anyone give birth to that!? There are so many questions to ask. Is her mother evil too? Will she be an original character or will she be taken from a real fairy tale?
According to TVLine, we’ll be seeing Evil Queen’s mother later in the season with the possibility of her turning up for a short arc in Season 2 should the series be renewed. There wasn’t any mention of her Storybrooke counterpart, or if she even has one. It’s possible she died in the fairy tale world before her »

Academy Award nominee Barbara Hershey has landed a mother of a role on ABC’s Once Upon a Time, as the very woman who brought the Evil Queen into this world — or, to be more precise, into the fairytale world, TVLine has learned.
Hershey, who is also an Emmy and Golden Globe winner for her role in the 1990 TV-movie A Killing in a Small Town, will first appear as the queen’s mum, Cora, later this season, with the option of also having a short arc in Season 2 (if/when the fantastical drama conjures up a renewal this spring).
