Rebecca Mader is the latest casualty of ONCE UPON A TIME’s Season 7 reset.
The fairy tale themed drama will be doing a “reset” for Season 7 that will reportedly focus around Regina/The Evil Queen (Lana Parrilla), Hook (Colin O’Donoghue), Rumple (Robert Carlyle), and a new character to be played by The Walking Dead and Dead of Summer actor Andrew J. West, according to Deadline.
However, in the midst of the rebranding, the show will also be losing another big actress. Rebecca Mader, who plays Zelena the Wicked Witch, announced that she was leaving to show. In a letter to fans, she states that the decision was not her own, but rather one made by the creative team.
We’ll see how Emma and Zelena make their exit during the Season 6 finale this Sunday on ABC.
