'Once Upon a Time' casting scoop: Barbara Hershey in as the Evil Queen's [SPOILER]

Like mother, like daughter?

We’ll find out soon enough if that’s the case for the Evil Queen. The show has just cast veteran actress Barbara Hershey to play her mother – with a bit of twist.

Hershey (Black Swan, Beaches) has been tapped for a guest role this season and a three-episode arc in the show’s NEXT season. That’s right, season 2.
