In a preview from ABC, it was announced that the Wicked Witch will be joining the cast, Entertainment Weekly reported. The Oz crossover begs the question of which other characters from the land of Oz could join the Once Upon a Time cast.
EW noted that Time will have their own version of the Wicked Witch and not have it be either “Elphaba” or “Theodora.”
Once Upon a Time cast member Robbie Kay, who plays Pan, spoke to E! News, saying that he is thrilled to have Mader join the cast. Mader is best known for her work on Lost, which also aired on ABC.
