ONCE UPON A TIME Finds Their Cruella in Victoria Smurfit
Once Upon a Time taps into another infamous Disney villainess, and we think she’s the worst of them all. Cruella De Vil will make her first appearance soon on the ABC fairy tail drama, and they’ve cast Dracula’s Victoria Smurfit to play the part. She’ll be replacing the current antagonist, the Snow Queen (Elizabeth Mitchell), in the second half of Season 4 next year.
Initially labeled as playing an “iconic character” when Smurfit was first announced, the actress couldn’t contain her excitement and tweeted “Super excited about playing Cruella for such an iconic show as @OnceABC.”
According to Hypable, seeds for Cruella’s appearance are already being sewn into OUaT’s current arc. She’ll start showing up alongside another iconic Disney villain, Maleficent, who is played by True Blood’s Kristin Bauer van Straten.
