According to a post on Twitter, the producers are looking for actors to play young Regina and young Zelena. Regina Mills (Lana Parrilla) is a powerful sorceress who got the title of the Evil Queen when she mastered the powers of dark magic. The character later had a change of heart and is now working alongside the heroes against dark forces. Zelena (Rebecca Mader) is the half-sister of Regina and is also known as the Wicked Witch of the West.

The casting call for the young Regina has asked for a 9 to 11 years old Latina girl to play a character who is 10 years old. The character is described as “neglected and lonely” and she “longs for companionship.” The character is still many years away from becoming the Evil Queen. She has no interest in the royal duties that her mother is so keen on.

The casting call hints at what the flashback scene will be about in “Once Upon a Time” Season 5. Young Regina wants to fill the “hole in her heart” and just for a chance to have a family, she will put everything on the line.

For the young Zelena character, the producers are looking for an 11 to 13 years old girl to play a character who is 12 years old. The character has not become the Wicked Witch of the West yet. “Wretchedly poor and despised by her father for her magical gifts, Zelena only wishes to escape her terrible fate,” the casting call teases about the character.

The young Zelena will get her chance to escape from her life in “Once Upon a Time” Season 5. She will discover that she can use the magic that her father despises in order to “prove her worth” and “change her life forever.”
