Lucy Lawless Coming Back to TV…as Belle’s Mom on Once Upon a Time? By David Glenn
Everyone is excited for season four of Once Upon a Time because of the addition of Elsa, Anna, and the rest of the cast from the Kingdom of Arendelle. We will also be seeing more of Once Upon a Time in Wonderland’s Will Scarlet as he makes his way back to Storybrooke. This week it was hinted that we might see more of Belle’s childhood this season as well, and that means we could very well see who her mother was. The web is abuzz with the idea that the actress who might be cast for the role could be Lucy Lawless.
Made famous by her role as Xena in Hercules: The Legendary Journeys and Xena: Warrior Princess, Lucy Lawless has been missing from the television world for some time. It was hinted that Belle might not have had a good childhood, which begs the question was Belle’s mother one of the wicked stepmothers of the fairy tales, or is something else at work? Even if we don’t see her on Once Upon a Time there is the possibility of her appearing on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., so one way or another we might see her back on the little screen again.
