Because the way I see it is that we're both shackled in our own way. And the question is, who is the actual prisoner and to whom?
—The Witch to Victoria Belfrey src

The Witch is a character on ABC's Once Upon a Time. She débuts in the third episode of the seventh season. She is portrayed by guest star Emma Booth.


During Fifth Curse

The Witch was brought to Seattle as a result of the fifth Curse and is locked in Belfrey Towers by Victoria Belfrey. One day, after Victoria successfully obtains the coffin of her daughter Anastasia from the Community Garden, she visits her prisoner. Victoria and the Witch discuss Victoria's plans concerning Lucy and Henry Mills, and the Witch issues an ominous warning: even if Victoria is able to defeat the heroes and bring back Anastasia from the dead, she will have to deal with her prisoner next. ("The Garden of Forking Paths")


Production Notes

  • Her original casting announcement described her as "the Witch who is as wicked as they come",[1] before being deleted.[2]
    • According to Adam Horowitz, this description is mainly speculation from the press as the writing staff never used the word "wicked" to describe this character.[3]
  • The Witch has no connection to Zelena, the Wicked Witch, or Oz.[4]
