Once Upon a Time: Devious Maids Fave to Snow the Snow Queen?

Once Upon a Time Wisocky Charlatan

Rebecca Wisocky — who on Devious Maids steals scenes as acid-tongued lady of leisure Evelyn Powell — is poised to cheat people out of a li’l something on ABC’s Once Upon a Time.

TVLine has learned that Wisocky will appear in this season’s 10th episode as Madam Faustina, a charlatan who, in flashbacks, pretends to commune with spirits in order to swindle her customers by telling them made-up fortunes. Said “seer” exhibits a gentle, compassionate manner, but that is only an act designed to conceal her tough, unscrupulous nature from her marks.

Word has it that Elizabeth Mitchell’s Snow Queen will cross paths with Faustina — buyer (or seller?) beware!

Wisocky’s other TV credits include this past Monday’s episode of Castle (as the head of the top-secret lab), a run on The Mentalist and the first season of American Horror Story.

    I think she would have been amazing as Maleficent; it’s a shame she is being used as, what seems to be a one time character since she is such an amazing actress;

  2. She is one of my favorite “you’ve-seen-her-on-every-great-tv-show-in-the-past-10-years” actresses. She was wasted on True Blood as Maab.

    You could have put Wisocky’s other TV credits as “essentially every single TV show ever made”. Seems as if this woman has been in everything, and she’s great each time.

    She is literally my favorite from Devious Maids. Even more than Susan Lucci who is also magnificent. Very much looking forward to this.

    This is the best news! I wish it was more than one episode but I will take it
    Love her on Devious Maids

    11th episode? Meaning the last one for the arc??? Curious timing for a backstory episode? Since it’s finale?, I just wonder why and how they will play it out, along with the purpose

    It’s a shame Wisocky never got to reprise her role as Queen Mab on True Blood. She would have made a kickass villain! Much better than Lillith, Warlow et al.

  8. Cory says:

    Such an amazing actress! I wish she would have a larger role in the OUAT universe! Like as other comments stated, Maleficent, or perhaps another villain in future seasons! Still, even though she’ll have a small role, with Rebecca Wisocky, it will stand out in epic fashion!

  9. William says:

    I’m surprised since this is Disney produced that shes isnt playing Madame Leota instead of playing Madam Faustina.

  10. D. says:

    Lover her, too bad it’s only for one episode!

    Kristen Bauer van Straten is Malificent on OUAT and a pretty amazing one at that. I think they’ll keep her version.
