Now that the first half of Season Four of 'Once Upon a Time' is in the history books, let's take a quick look back at some of the Evil Queen's hammiest moments as displayed by charming Lana Parrilla.
As is often the case with these types of dramatic series, over time the rough characters gradually have their rough edges shorn off. Soon, the 'evil' characters are trading polite banter with their former 'enemies' and making darned sure to be politically correct as they shoot off the occasional wisecrack showing that they're 'just plain folks' after all.
Well, fortunately for fans of 'Once Upon a Time,' Lana has not fallen under that particular television 'evil spell' among all the other curses that befell the denizens of Storybrooke recently. She had a few choice moments during these episodes to revert to the hammy goodness at the heart of her evil character and toss off some trademark snarls. Of course, she gets a tremendous kick out of it herself as she vamps it up for the cameras.
