Ruby herself, Meghan Ory, gives HollywoodLife.com a taste of what’s to come.

Once Upon A Time loves to rewrite the fairy tales we all thought we knew, but the show made its biggest edit last week when it was revealed that Red (Meghan Ory) was unknowingly also the Big Bad Wolf — and Meghan tells HollywoodLife.com the major twist could have serious repercussions in Storybrooke.

“That’s going to be an interesting thing to discover,” Meghan says, ever-so-cryptically.”It’ll be interesting to see what happens with that. … I think Ruby’s whole world has sort of changed now.”

Meghan says her “jaw hit the floor” when she first found out about the big twist — and just like the wolf she now plays, the news kept her up all night.

“I read the script at, I think, 12 in the morning, and I was up until 5 a.m. just thinking about it,” she recalls. “It was so much more than I ever imagined they would do with Ruby, and with Red. It was an actor’s dream script, really.”

Even though Meghan can’t say whether or not the twist means we might be seeing more of Ruby’s dark side in Storybrooke, she can confirm that “Ruby’s going to try to find her footing and come to terms with what has happened.”

Other than that, Ruby will continue searching for love in all the wrong places — and wearing way too much red.

“I actually have a very red coat that I’ve had for years, and when I wrote it the other day, Josh Dallas started making fun of me,” Meghan tells us. “I’ve had it forever! I swear I didn’t go out and buy it because of this. I think I’m going to have to put that one on the shelf.”
