See Her Tonight
Rebecca Mader on Once Upon A Time
(8:00 PM EST, ABC)
There’s a lot of competition on television tonight, with season debuts of Mad Men and Californication going up against the MTV Movie Awards–but your See Her Tonight column is pretty impressed by how Once Up A Time can offer up Rebecca Mader as one of the hottest green ladies to hit the airwaves since the original Star Trek. She’s starring on the show as a wickedly sexy witch named Zelena, and it’s great to see Rebecca Mader back on ABC.
She originally got her start as an actress there on Lost, of course, which landed her in Hollywood after a long stint as a hot English model. Television didn’t keep doing right by Rebecca, though .She was pretty much wasted in the superhero drama No Ordinary Family, and became part of Bad Sitcom History when she took a role on the guys-in-drag comedy Work It.
At least Rebecca got to get back to her work as a sci-fi fantasy gal with a role on the final season of Fringe--and she even made it to the fantastic big screen with a (too small) role in Iron Man 3. We were also very happy when Rebecca raided the Lifetime network’s Drop Dead Diva as a dominatrix taken to court by a client.
We follow Rebecca on Twitter, of course, so we were ready to watch her from the beginning as Zelena–and this is only her sixth appearance on the show, so you can quickly catch up with a gal who might give you a strange new fetish. But we also have plenty of typically ravishing Rebecca in these pics right here…
