Mirror, mirror on the screen, who are the best and worst actors on the show?
Mirror, mirror on the screen, who are the best and worst actors on the show?
I thought of this while I was doing my polls about the best villain actors on the show. It also made me think of the Nostalgia Critic's best and worst Avatar: The Last Airbender episodes videos. So I decided to do a list of the best and worst actors on the show. Now, I would like to make ONE THING PERFECTLY CLEAR! Just because someone is in the worst list, it DOESN'T mean that I think they're a bad actor, just that I think that they're acting isn't as good as the others. Because I think the acting in Once Upon A Time is absolutely brilliant. So here is my list of both the worst of the best...

Many people (including the writers) seem to overlook the Blue Fairy but the truth is that she is one of the three most powerful people in Storybrook both because of her magic and because of the persuasive power she has over people. This article is meant to take a closer look at her involvement in the story and the effect her actions and prejudice has had on the lives of the main characters.

So there is no confusion the regular font is fact (taken mostly from OUATwiki) and italicized is my opinion.


The Blue Fairy and her dealings with Rumplestiltskin

I've been meaning to do this for a long time and now I'm finally doing it. Once Upon A Time has a lot of really beautiful women. I believe these women are the true beauties of the show and some need more appreciation for their looks. Please leave a comment but keep in mind this is just my opinion.

10.Mulan
First of all I'm not a big fan of her as a character, she has the personality of sand paper, but she's really beautiful. She has such long beautiful hair, even though it's in a weird style for most of the time we see her. I just love Asian eyes and her skin is lovely. She's such a natural...

This may include spoilers for those of you who aren't caught up yet but you should know that risk by now

It's no secret on this club that I can't stand Victoria (I refuse to call her Rapunzel) AT ALL! The only good things I can say about her is that she's good looking, I like her accent, and the actress is very talented. However, as a villain, she was a total waste of time because she did little to nothing. She wasn't intimidating AT ALL and just felt like some brat trying to have control over everything but looks really awkward and unconvincing as a legit threat. She felt more like a silly...

This countdown was based on first impression things only like looks, mannerisms, voice. Any difference in their personality and story were not considered. Of course OUAT is its own show and there are a lot of differences so much that some had a hard time seeing any resemblances:

I think non of these actresses resembless to Disney princesses. The only thing that resembless to Disney, it's their costumes and dresses. ~ magichand

others had no problem seeing it:

You know, Disney owns parts of ABC...so...yeah... ~ TheFan2000

SO...

Which OUAT Princess most resembles her Disney Princess counterpart?...

Nearly a year ago I made a list of my top 10 most beautiful women on the show but now my opinion has changed. It's changed even more because now we have some new beauties that we didn't have before. Please comment and if someone you think is really beautiful isn't here it doesn't mean I don't find them attractive, it just means they're not as beautiful as the others. If you're wondering how I feel about a certain character's looks who's not here feel free to ask me. Anyway, enjoy!

The only Once Upon A Time In Wonderland character to make this list and boy she's a knock out!...

After seeing many of these I decided I'd type one too. This is not just for the prettiest women but also my hottest men as well. I just lumped it in to one article.

10. Tamara

Though I'm on and off with her character I think Tamara is quite pretty. I love her hair, I don't know how she can make it that perfect, like hot damn I can't even get my hair to stop doing that frizzy thing unless I spend like 20 minutes with a hair straighter. I mean her hair is just so long silky and smooth. I also like her lips, just something about them. Her face in general is well structured; eyes, nose, lips are...

Inspired by the who has a harder life poll, I decided to make another article on this (I'll also be utilizing some comments from there). It kind of goes hand in hand with an older article I wrote; link so I'll kind of be bring up why I think she's still sympathetic as I believe these topics go hand in hand.

One more side note; despite the source of inspiration this article is going to be Regina focused and I won't be drawing too many comparisons to other characters for the sake of saying she has it harder because I think each character has his/her own struggles that were equally as difficult....

Never trust a killed employer
Lol this is something that would have been perfect month's ago but i just thought of it now. Plus Zanhar1's hilarious song fics inspired me to try one of my own.

Pan arrogantly stepped to the crowd of the frozen towns people in front of him. He turned to Belle and his grandson Bealfire ( or "IT'S NEAL!") as he claimed "You both look so adorable it's hard to tell which one to kill first" . He reached for his dagger and heard the cry of "You not going to touch any of them!" Rumple came running out of the shop "Ah come to protect your woved one's" Pan chided "Oh believe me i am" "Please tell me...

There are so many gorgeous woman in OUaT and that is what makes a list like this so hard. Each and every woman on this has something that makes her stand out from the crowd but here are the woman that stand out even among them. They are the ones that while watching I find myself thinking "I want what she's got"


7. Jack

The moment I say Jack in the promo for "Tiny" I though "wow she is pretty". First off she is fit as perfect in size and shape as a woman can be. Also I love her hair and her smile. She really embodies the girl next door type of good looks an ordinary beauty that really stands...

The Best Character on the Show
The Best Character on the Show
Well... Probably all you Tamara lovers will hate me and this article. I don't know if some people are gonna get crazy, but here it is. (Once again, keep in mind that this is only my opinion)

1. I'll start off with the obvious one: She's a hypocrite. It’s ridiculous that Tamara used a magic bean to escape when all she’s been talking about is “magic is evil”. She hates magic, yet throughout the entire show she's been using magic.

2. Not only is she constantly complaining about Emma, but she's in this relationship just for her interest and she's cheating on that poor Neal! Bitch, if you...

"ONCE UPON A TIME" - Relationship Mystery

Since the seventh episode of "ONCE UPON A TIME" called (1.07) "The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter" aired, many viewers have assumed that the relationship between the Evil Queen aka Mayor Regina Mills and the Huntsman aka Sheriff Graham was one of rape. They believed that after ripping his heart from his chest, Regina used it to force him into having sex with her. Ever since that episode aired, many have accused Regina of being a rapist.

I had believed this as well, until a few weeks ago. While reading a Tumblr account, someone posted an exchange between one...

This is my take on the SwanFire debate. This is just how I saw what the show was portraying and then got really frustrated with Emma's personality glitch when it came to Neal.

First, Emma was absolutely scarred by what happened. It's why she lied to Henry about his father - she couldn't stand the thought of him finding out what his father had done to her. She made up a story about how his father was a hero who died saving lives.

All her life Emma was completely unloved. As far as she knew at the time she was abandoned as a baby on the side of the road - "[her] parents didn't even care enough...

Recently I was discussing with Katara and Audrey the situation with Zelena and Regina. The situation being that argument the pair have in Regina's office where Regina blames Zelena for Robin's death and Zelena gets angry at Regina for splitting herself. Naturally I had to take a stance on this an really I found that I was sympathetic to both characters.

The first point of interest is that Zelena is angry at Regina for going to Snow for advice as opposed to her. It is my belief that Snow was simply there at the right place at the right time. Zelena simply wasn't there. In fact, if I remember...

I was just thinking about the fairy tale characters' real world counterparts, and I noticed that most of them had names that tied into their "real," fairy tale selves. So I decided to throw together a list of their names, with meanings and explanations, just for kicks. First I will say what the character's name is in fairy tale land, then in the real world, with meaning attached. All name meanings come from the website Behind the Name, with help from Wikipedia.

I will add more characters when they are introduced and edit existing characters when we know their full names and/or know more about...

I'm not very surprised that I have a very unpopular opinion about Peter Pan, who I absolutely DESPISE! I've always hated the character of Peter Pan, even before Once Upon A Time came into the picture, although at least this one portrays him the way he deserves, as a villain. This article is actually inspired by two articles that my friend, zanhar1, wrote about why she hates Bloom from Winx Club and the unfair biasness that Winx Club has for the good guys, which will inspire a lot of points on why I hate Peter Pan. Also, considering how zanhar1's article about why she hates Bloom ended up getting...

So probably you've heard about this drama that happened on twitter, and it really really hurts me to see people being sympathetic to Michael Coleman like he was the victim and JMo and Adam were hard on him because he was misquoted

So I'm writing this so people don't judge quickly on JMo, Lana, Adam and SQ shippers

Here's the what happened :

First of all, a girl tweeted Michael asking him of his opinion about SQ, so he started with her this whole offensive discussion, saying SQ isn't gonna happen and us SQ shippers should stop shipping it 'cause it doesn't even exist that us SQ shippers are just...

Lately on the internet I seen a lot of Milah hate and I feel compelled to write another meta about her.

When Belle expresses a desire to leave her small town and go on adventures to see the world she's called a strong, independent, female character who is not afraid to go after what she wants. She's referred to as a girl that little girls watching should aspire to be.

When Ariel sings about wanting more from her life we sing along with her and empathise with her. She's a teenage girl who knows that what she has is not what she wants and again goes after it. She is many people's favourite...

"DISTURBING DEATHS"

Ever since I watched (3.01) "The Heart of the Truest Believer", the Season Three premiere for ABC's "ONCE UPON A TIME", I have been experiencing troubling thoughts about the series' writing. And those troubling thoughts centered around the deaths of two recurring characters.

Anyone who had watched both the Season Three premiere and the Season Two finale, (2.22) "And Straight On 'Til Morning" would know to what I am referring. The latter episode saw two recurring characters, Greg Mendell and Tamara, attempt to destroy Storybrooke in an effort to rid the world of any magic....

I love Belle. I like that she's sweet, brave, willing to see the best in everyone and not afraid to say what she feels no matter what happens. She is the character that reminds me the most of myself. I like Rumple too mainly because of Robert Carlyle. Who can manage be both alluring and incredibly creepy even dressed as a sparkly imp. I've been a devoted fangirl since the Full Monty and OUAT has only encouraged that. However I can't support Rumbelle.

I know that the idea of seeing the best in someone and changing them for the better is very popular with most girls. I'll admit I've fallen for...
