How did Lana Parrilla get the scar above her lip?
Lana Parrilla (born Lana Maria Parilla on July 15, 1977 in Brooklyn, New York City) didn't go into much detail, but explained that her lip injury occurred when she was 10 and was attacked by a dog while sitting with her cat in the front yard; this left a noticeable scar on the right side of her upper lip.
Parrilla got her first professional acting role in 1999 when she played a waitress in the TV series Grown Ups. She later appeared in Spin City (2000-2001), The Shield (2002), Boomtown (2002-2003), NYPD Blue (2004), Six Feet Under (2004), 24 (2005), Lost (2007), and Chase (2011), to name a few of the 23 titles for which she has credits.
Right now the talk is about the ABC TV series Once Upon a Time, in which she plays the roles of both Regina Mills, mayor of Storybrooke, and the Evil Queen in the Enchanted Forest.
Inside TV reported on November 26, 2012 that ratings for the show jumped 11% since its last show two weeks prior. It brought in almost 9,000,000 viewers in the coveted 18-49 year old demographic before its December 2, 2012 Winter Finale (the series returns in January of 2013).
