TV Line reports that Barbara Hershey (Black Swan, Hannah and her Sisters, Falling Down) has been cast as the Evil Queen’s mother.

Ever since the news that episode 18, Stable Boy, would feature Regina’s mother in a possibly recurring story arc, speculation has been rife as to who would take on the role as the woman who could easily have been the inspiration for the saying ‘The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.’

Once fans can expect to see Hershey make her debut in Stable Boy later this spring.
