Lana Parrilla | Once Upon A Time
While performances this week exceeded all our expectations, Lana Parrilla moved us to tears with her impeccable portrayal of Regina Mills –no longer the evil queen– in “Bleeding Through”.
All Regina’s wanted was to be enough for her mother without powers or being a queen, but at the end of the day, it’s something she never got. Lana Parrilla played Regina’s heartbreak in exquisitely this week. Parrilla wore endless years of torment and heartbreak astoundingly as she made the audience believe that Regina’s truly had enough of lies and living the past – she too wants to finally move on but is burdened by the lack of love from someone she wanted it most from.
And it’s the final heart to heart between the two women that blew us away most as the audience could see Regina’s genuine remorse. At the end of the day, deep down, Snow’s that little girl who’s wanted Regina to be with her true love most, and Regina’s the young woman who saved a child’s life because she couldn’t not.
Ultimately, Lana Parrilla’s performances this week made certain viewers felt the authentic love Regina’s now finally filled with.
