"Once Upon a Time" season 3 is still on a break, but there are tons of spoilers being released. The most recent one has to do with the Wicked Witch.

Warning: If you do not want to know "Once Upon a Time" season 3 spoilers, then stop reading.

Since fans already know that the Good Witch's name is Glinda, it is only fair that the Wicked Witch's name also be revealed. Her name on the television series has been announced and it is Zelena. However, her backstory as well as who her parents are, two details that Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis have told fans they will discover when "OUAT" returns, are still kept under wraps. So what other new information is available about Zelena, the Wicked Witch? Ginnifer Goodwin, who plays Snow White on the show, revealed some hints to TVLine when they visited the set in Vancouver,

"[The witch] is seemingly a kindred spirit to Snow White, which is part of what makes her so evil. She seems so genuinely kind and has a way of becoming intimate with others and making them trust her…. Rebecca Mader called her ‘Mary Poppins,’ because she was just so damn likeable!"

She also said about Rebecca Mader, who plays the Wicked Witch, tweaked her character while rehearsing,

“She wanted her to be manipulative and conniving, something of an investigator. But then she realized, ‘No, what would actually be wicked would be to match Snow’s sweetness and really seem like someone cut from the same cloth.’”

"Once Upon a Time" season 3 will return on March 9.
