'Once Upon a Time': The Wicked Witch of the West revealed

Storybrooke has a new big bad, my pretties: The Wicked Witch of the West!

After Once Upon a Time‘s midseason finale Sunday night, ABC’s preview for the second half of the season revealed that the green-skinned villain (aka Elphaba — if the show uses the character’s Wicked name*) is coming aboard. She’s played by Rebecca Mader (Lost),  who was previously announced to be joining the fantasy series in a top-secret role. The move intriguingly adds the merry old land of Oz to the show’s wealthy tapestry of literary and cinematic universes. Who else from Oz might show up next?

*UPDATE: We’re told TWWOTW won’t be “Elphaba” or “Theodora” but have her own Once Upon name to put a new spin on the character.

Here’s Mader’s tweet of a first official photo of her in full character:
