Actress Emma Caulfield, best known for her role on the cult-classic series Buffy, the Vampire Slayer, is coming back to the world of the supernatural for her latest role in the upcoming, new ABC fairy tale series ONCE UPON A TIME.

According to the folks over at TV Line, Caulfield will play the “incredibly scary and frightening” Blind Witch from Hansel and Gretel, who will appear in the show’s 9th episode.

Ironically, Caulfield will be reunited with The CW’s Life Unexpected series creator Liz Tigelaar who is a consulting producer on the new ABC series (Caulfield had a recurring role on the short-lived series); and with fellow Buffy alum (albeit from behind the scenes) Jane Espenson, who serves as co-executive producer of the new show.

The series already boasts an impressive cast of regulars as well as its guest stars that include, besides Caulfield, Kristin Bauer Van Straten (True Blood), who will play Maleficent, Alan Dale (Lost) who will play Prince Charming’s father, Jessy Schram (Falling Skies), who will play Cinderella, Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad), who will play the Evil Queen’s sidekick and David Anders (The Vampire Diaries), who will play a small town doctor.

Once Upon a Time debuts on ABC on Sunday, October 23 at 8/7c.
