The new promo of the next Friday’s winter finale episode of Once Upon a Time, “The Eighth Witch” (7×10) was released and Adelaide is in it. Check it out:
Here is the synopsis of the episode:
When Drizella threatens the realm with a dark curse, Henry and Ella take extreme actions to protect Lucy and the others; and Regina is forced into making an unimaginable choice. In Hyperion Heights, Roni recruits Henry to travel to San Francisco to search for her sister, but when he learns Lucy has fallen unconscious, Henry rushes to be by her side. Meanwhile, Gothel earns the trust of Anastasia and the consequences of their budding relationship could prove to be fatal.
- New details about Adelaide’s character, Drizella, were revealed September 15 on Entertainment Weekly.
She’s “deliciously evil,” showrunner Eddy Kitsis says. “She presents herself to be as evil as the evil stepsisters promise to be, but like everything in Once Upon a Time, you never know what’s underneath it.”
Drizella is so evil on the show that she might even take away that throne from her mother, Lady Tremaine.
Adam Horowitz adds: “There’s a lot going on inside of Drizella, and she earned the evil moniker.”
Once Upon a Time returns on Friday, October 6th on ABC.
The 26-year-old Reign actress has signed on the play Drizella, one of the evil stepsisters from Cinderella, in the show’s upcoming season.
Adelaide joins several other newcomers including Mekia Cox who will play Tiana from The Princess and the Frog and Rose Reynolds who will play Alice from Alice in Wonderland.
“We had a plan for the original show that ran six seasons, and at a point, we felt like it was time for certain characters to get their happy endings. What we’re going to do now is go on a new adventure,” showrunner Eddy Kitsis said during the show’s Comic-Con panel.
He added, “We are looking forward to meeting new people who we didn’t get to explore as much.”
