TVGuide Interview Teases Love Affair with the Evil Queen
Natalie Abrams recently interviewed Giancarlo Esposito (Syndey/Magic Mirror) and discovered that we will soon learn about the Magic Mirror’s mysterious past, his relationship with the Evil Queen, and how he became trapped in that mirror.
Here are a few highlights from the interview. For more, visit TVGuide.com.
Why is Sydney turning on Regina this week?
“As you know, she is totally in control of everything in the Storybrooke world, or at least wants to be. She has really hurt his sensibilities. Sidney is really a guy who has some integrity. He is so wrapped up in the newspaper and wants to be able to tell the truth. This whole storyline is so much about the truth, and she really takes him down. Regina hurts his feelings in such a deep way, but it comes from that other world that we don’t yet know about. You’ll also find a very big surprise in this episode because all that you see is not really what’s real.”
What kind of person was he before being trapped in the Magic Mirror?
“He was a person who really believed in love and had aspirations and dreams. Because of what happened between he and Regina, that was taken away from him. Now, he’s left with bitterness, anger and a desire to change his circumstance. Before that, he was a man that had hope and believed in people and goodness. So we see someone who is broken in many ways trying to find their way back to good.”
Will we be able to recognize what fairytale character he was?
“Oh, I think you will. It’s such an interesting transition for this character. He’s been enslaved in a different way and he becomes free only to be enslaved in this new way.”
So start thinking about enslaved fairytale characters and post your predictions in the comments below.
