Since its debut in October of 2011, ABC's Once Upon a Time has consistently ranked among the best TV shows currently on the air, thanks in large part to this drama's outstanding cast list. From Jennifer Morrison's Emma Swan and Ginnifer Goodwin's Snow White/Mary Margaret Blanchard to Robert Carlyle's Rumplestiltskin/Mr. Gold and Lana Parrilla's The Evil Queen/Regina Mills, these characters are memorable, maddening (at times) and certainly worthy of a spot on this list.
