TVLine has learned exclusively that Schram will return in the upcoming Season 6’s third episode, titled “The Other Shoe,” in which it is revealed that the maid-turned-princess has a connection to the Land of Untold Stories, which in the Season 5 finale relocated its many denizens to Storybrooke.
The same episode will also explore the origin of the friendship between Cinderella and Snow White (played by Ginnifer Goodwin), which was first established in Season 1, Episode 4 flashbacks.
Schram last appeared on Once Upon a Time (as Cinderella’s Storybrooke alter ego, Ashley) in the seventh episode of Season 4. The ubiquitous actress’ other TV credits include Nashville, The Lizzie Borden Chronicles, Mad Men, Falling Skies and Last Resort.
Cinderella/Ashley isn’t the only early-seasons callback on tap for Season 6; as previously reported, Raphael Sbarge is due to appear in the Sunday, Sept. 25 opener as Archie Hopper.
