When the news that Beaches star Barbara Hershey was cast as Cora, the Evil Queen’s mother, Twitter went chaotic. Beaches fans were happy to see Barbara Hershey again and the #EvilRegals were happy to finally get more back story on the Evil Queen/Regina. So this was a win-win situation for everybody! 🙂
So in anticipation of this week’s episode, The Hollywood Reporter was able to sit down with Barbara Hershey for some questions and much anticipated answers about how Regina became evil.
