Kristin Bauer van Straten Heads to “Once Upon a Time”

By  |  4 Comments

News just broke over at our sister site,, that Kristin Bauer van Straten will be making an   appearance on the new ABC series, Once Upon a Time, premiering October 23. Kristin just tweeted that she was “packing for Vancouver – to shoot #OnceUponaTime – new fantastical TV show.” Once Upon a Time promises to be a perfect fix for those True Blood withdrawals. Mel and I were fortunate enough to have seen the screener for this show and it is just what the doctor ordered. Now we find out that Kristin is going to guest star! As if we needed another reason to tune in every week.

Once Upon a Time is not your typical fairy tale.  It takes place in a town called Storybrook, “a place where magic has been forgotten, but is still powerfully close… where fairytale characters are alive, even though they don’t remember who they once were. The epic battle for the future of all worlds is beginning, but for good to win, Emma Swan will have to accept her destiny and fight like hell.” (ABC)

Details are not available yet as to Kristin’s role on the show but you can be sure that Mel and I are on it. Keep checking in at for all the details.

Over-night fan (almost literally) of the Sookie Stackhouse series since early 2008. Co-owner of Anxiously anticipating season 6.

    It sounds good, however I’m a little afraid to start watching because I’ll watch it, then love it and they’ll just snatch it like a theif in the night just like they did The Gates I had really gotten into it only to find out it was cancelled. 🙁 . ABC is notorious for give good shows the boot I know I know ratings play a huge part. I’m just saying.

      Cha, I think this one has legs. It’s already generating a lot of buzz and it’s an amazing show. The scenes are beautiful and it’s got a great cast. Give it a shot and we’ll chat about it in the forum!

    I just saw the preview!!! It looks like it’s gonna be pretty good. I love Ginnifer Goodwin I’m really excited to see her work. She was my fav of all the Big Love wives.
