I am told frequently both online and in person that by being a part of such a special show I have in some way changed someone's life. This is hugely meaningful to me. I am here to let you know that I am the one who has been changed. Not just by playing such a well written multi-dimensional character but by the fandom itself. I have heard your stories, your pain, your struggles, your achievements and I have truly felt you. I have learned. I have grown.

Biography

Rebecca Mader was born on April 24,[1] 1977 in the town of Cambridge in England.[2] She is of partial German descent.[6] Rebecca started out at a successful model at sixteen for the Ford Modeling Agency. In early 2000, she transitioned into acting on television by landing television guest spots. She worked on several soap operas and was offered a contract role on All My Children in 2003, but she turned it down in favor of a seventeen episode arc on the soap drama as English gangster Morgan Gordon.[2]

Three years later, Rebecca had a memorable turn as a fashion editor in the film The Devil Wears Prada. Her break into fame came when she joined the cast of the hit television show Lost in 2008 as cultural anthropologist Charlotte Lewis, with an original eight episode stint that grew to twenty episodes in total.[2]

After wrapping up her role on Lost, Rebecca looked to the big screen, where her projects included portraying Ewan McGregor's ex-wife in the 2009 film The Men Who Stare at Goats.[2]

Rebecca was married to Joseph Arongino, but they separated in 2007. On December 29, 2014, she announced her engagement to Marcus Kayne via her Twitter account.[7] The two were married on November 23, 2016.[8]

On May 12, 2017, Mader announced that she would not be back as series regular for the series' Season Seven, though it was not her choice, and instead was a creative decision.[9] However, in September 2017, it was revealed that she would return for multiple episodes in the seventh season.[10]

Trivia

To my Darling Pretties,
First of all I would like to start by congratulating Adam, Eddie, Lana, Bobby and Colin on the pick up of Once Upon A Time! I am truly happy for you all and most importantly for the fans that will get to keep tuning in each week to see where they will take us.
A lot of you have been asking if I will be joining everyone in Season 7, so I wanted to let you know personally that unfortunately I am not. This wasn't my choice but a creative decision of the shows that I totally respect and understand.
The most important thing is that you all know how much you mean to me. I am told frequently both online and in person that by being a part of such a special show I have in some way changed someone's life. This is hugely meaningful to me. I am here to let you know that I am the one who has been changed. Not just by playing such a well written multi-dimensional character but by the fandom itself. I have heard your stories, your pain, your struggles, your achievements and I have truly felt you. I have learned. I have grown. I am a better person because of you, the fans and everyone that blessed me with this opportunity to play such an iconic role.
Congrats all and thank you! I look forward to the next. I invite you to come with me on this journey.
I am forever changed. And I'm wicked. And Wicked Always Wins.
Forever yours,
Bex πŸ’š[9]
