It looks like another iconic Disney character is making her way to the set of Once Upon a Time as actress Victoria Smurfit has been tapped to play Cruella de Vil!
The Dracula alum will join the cast in the second half of this season, along with another foe, Kristen Kristin Bauer van Straten’s Maleficent. The citizens of Storybrooke seriously can’t catch a break.
There are no details available about Smurfit’s plotline yet and there’s still an air of mystery around the role. The actress tweeted about being cast in the part yesterday, but it has since been removed. Luckily, fans won’t have to wait too long to find out what the Dalmatian-obsessed villain will be up to…the character will be teased in the winter finale of the show…Perhaps she’ll have an entrance a la Elsa?
Leave your thoughts about Smurfit’s casting and predictions for de Vil’s storyline in the comments below!
