Kristin Bauer van Straten is returning to Storybrooke. She will be reprising her role as Maleficent on ABC’s ONCE UPON A TIME, despite having been (apparently) killed off at the end of the first season. But if TV has taught us anything, it’s that not everyone is always truly dead. She returns as a recurring character for the upcoming fourth season.
The actress is perhaps best known for her role on HBO’s recently departed “True Blood,” where she played fashionable vamp Pam De Beaufort. She recently wrapped production on “Teen Lust,” a comedy from Jason Stone and Blaine Thurier that centers around an awkward high school student who strives to lose his virginity before his parents and their Satanic cult can sacrifice him to the devil.
Bauer is repped by LINK Entertainment.
The fourth season of “Once Upon a Time” premieres Sunday, Sept. 28 at 8:00pm on ABC.
