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.

If you love Once Upon a Time, you might also want to check out and vote on this list of which Storybrooke character should appear on the show next. And, if you believe Once Upon a Time is one of the best shows ever, consider voting for it on this list of the best current dramatic TV shows.
