  • I'm sure everyone noticed the scar that can be seen near Lana's upper lip that can be seen in the show.  I'm wondering if since they never bothered to cover it with make-up if they will at some point add it to a storyline like maybe Regina got in a violent fight when she was little or was attacked when she was little. For a couple years I had a theory that Cora caused the scar and I still kinda wanna stick with that theory like at some point during Regina's childhood, Cora was physically abusive towards her. However maybe Regina was attacked by some kind of beast or she got kidnapped or something.

    • Cora being violent towards her would be a cool explanation, and it would make perfect sense.

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • Or they simply don't want to waste time doing make up just to cover her signature scar

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • Well, Lana got the scar saving her cat from a dog when she was like 10. So maybe they could reference that by having Cora do something to her when she was 10.

    • "Never bothered to cover it"

      Why do they need to cover it? It's part of her face that's been there for decades XD I'd be a little offended if they wanted to put makeup over my minor scars :P

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • That scar doesn't make Lana any less gorgeous, why cover it? :P

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • I've never noticed it myself. Regina has led a rather dangerous life in the past, we can expect it to have left a few marks.

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • It's not too terrible noticeable, but for those of us who love to stare at Lana's face we see it XD it's not large or anything

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • I study all the character's faces to some extent, but I've never noticed it. It has always looked flawless to me. Maybe it's because I'm focusing on the expressions more than the individual features.....Or, I'm just not very observent. Either way, no big deal.

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • This image shows it fairly well. it's that small line above her lip XD it's not very noticeable at all

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • Thanks. I see it now. To be honest, if I'd ever noticed it before, I'd just think that it was her first minute wrinkle. Then I'd marvel at how young she looks. If I was her, I don't think I'd want them using my scar as a plot device.

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • Knowing her, she's probably entirely comfortable with it and herself in general, but I'm not a fan of the idea of having to "explain" such a minor thing.

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • Why would they need to? Maybe if it was in season one or two, but what purpose would it serve. We've already seen Cora use magic on Regina and emotionally abuse her. It isn't a major concern and using a trait that an actor has inside the story should go through the person first and see if it is actually necessary.

      I have always noticed it, but it doesn't bother me at all.

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • Agreed. It's so small that it's not even worth noticing. 

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • I'm sorry, guys. It was only a suggestion!

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • Don't be! It's an interesting discussion.

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • It's fine. Suggestions are always interesting for debate.

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • I'm sorry. I didn't mean it like that. It was an interesting idea. I just think that it's so minute that it wouldn't be appropriate to bring attention to it on the show. That's just my opinion. It doesn't make yours wrong.

    • To be fair, Josh's real-life scar was adapted into the show. It's the scar Snow "gives" him when they first meet. On the flip side, JMo has tons of scars on her body from mole removals, and her scars have never been brought up. Although it could be said to be as a result of abuse while in the foster system, which would mean Emma would never speak about it.

      Reading the responces above, I was totally about to write something about Josh's scar, lol. Every saying it is so minor, that there is no reason to give a plot explaination, but that's exactly what they did for Josh, lol.

      And it was something so major to the Snowing story that they had to recreate it in the Season 3 finale lol

    • Yeah, but that particular scar makes sense to "explain". It's how Henry recognized him, and was done very early on.

      Doing it at this point for Regina would be, for lack of a better word, very odd. XD

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • Lana once said in an interview that she doesn't really want it to be covered up or photoshopped away. It's a part of her, so why cover it up? That was her reaction I think, but I don't remember the inverview very clearly...

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • I think it depends on her. If Lana feels comfortable with it, it could certainly make an interesting story-line. However, if she'd rather not have it focused on, then it's something that could go ignored.

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • It's perfectly natural that the scar has been noticed since episode 1 in season 1, I know I have as well as others. Since she does have a villainous past, it just seems like an opportunity to use something that is already there to your advantage. I think it would be cool if it had to do with some altercation she's had in her past either with Cora or another villain, and it doesn't have to be made a big deal of either. She could be in a sword fight and someone cuts her there and she just wipes the blood, revealing the "new" scar. No harm, no foul, just incorporation into the character since it is an obvious thing to some people.

    • Killian Jones: I know the scar was there even before Emma was born, that's why I included in my original comment that "I think it would be cool if it had to do with some altercation she's had in her past" and frankly I don't know what Emma has to do with Regina's scar or my comment?

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • Personally, I wouldn't mind it the show gave an in-universe explanation about Lana's scar, or also Colin's. For instance, Teen Wolf did it with Tyler Posey's scar, and it was a cute little moment too: they just mentioned how the character got scarred, like, in Season Four, even though ot was the actor's own thing. I didn't see it as disrespectful or odd. :)

      Anyways, I'll sound like a fankid as usual, but I really love Lana's scar. XD

      Cora is not The Joker. I agree with HP7 thats it's probably just an accident from childhood.

      That isn't Cora's way. She'd likely choke Regina into unconsciousness or dangle her over a cliff before she cut up her face.

      The Joker doesn't act that way because he has a temper, he acts that way because he's psychotic. Cora, is almost the exact opposite of him, she is manipulative and calculating. And besides she wouldn't want her daughter to have a scar on her face, as it would be seen as a flaw, and make her less likely to be chosen to be queen by some prince.

      It could be the beginning of the dissension between Regina and her mother Cora. Perhaps it's an accident when Regina is young and starts to see that her mom isn't as loving with her as her father is. Maybe even it's Regina stepping in to protect her father from her mother and gets scarred in the process?

      Personally, I think the scar only adds to her character as "The [former] Evil Queen" so it just makes sense to use the scar. After all, Regina's character is scarred very much from her childhood and past so it's almost symbolic of everything she goes through in life.

    • the scar is like a part of her signature look and she looks great, but i dont think it really needs to be addressed, (if you've seen Lost, they did a whole episode for a backstory for the main guys tattoos because the actor already had them - it was one of the worst episodes of the show)

      Yeah in case you haven't read the book, she got the scar when she fell of a horse when she was young, and Cora magically healed it because Regina has to be perfect and a price won't want her if she has a scar. But when Regina makes a wish on the blue star Blue brings the scar back to remaind her of her courageous moment.

    • the scar was caused by a fall from her horse she wished from the blue fairy fo it to stay t remind her of her courage
