Lana Parrilla is an American actress best known for her role as Sarah Gavin on the fourth season of the television action series 24, in 2005.

She currently stars as Regina Mills (the Evil Queen) in the fantasy drama television series Once Upon a Time, since 2011.

Beginning at a young age, she was constantly making home videos with her family, signaling her desire even then to be an actress. After graduating from high school, Parrilla moved to Los Angeles to study acting and began honing her craft in local theatre productions.
