Once Upon a Time Hot Shots: Hansel and Gretel Visit Emma Caulfield's Creepy Blind Witch

Once Upon a Time will enjoy an embarrassment of riches on Jan. 15 when the freshman smash introduces Hansel and Gretel and the Blind Witch (played by Buffy alum Emma Caulfield). And as you can see in the following photo gallery, the Evil Queen’s behind the fairy tale pile-up.

Seems her majesty needs an artifact that’s in the possession of the sight-deprived sorceress, so she coerces Hansel and Gretel into stealing it for her.

But as scary as the Evil Queen is, it’s Caulfield’s creepy-looking witch who really has us quaking in our boots.

“We couldn’t think of anyone better to trap two children in a house and try to eat them,” Once co-creator Edward Kitsis told TVLine of Caulfield.
