On Once Upon a Time, the gorgeous Lana Parrilla (Regina Mills/The Evil Queen) plays a character so unlucky in love, it drives her to the dark side. What about in real life?

Unlike Regina, Lana seems to be in a happy relationship. In a recent interview with TV Guide, she mentioned that she has a boyfriend, and it sounds like he's super supportive.

"Sometimes it's hard," she explained. "I'm the character and I just needed my space and I needed to be alone for a little bit." She added this anecdote about a time she started "bawling" while explaining how alone Regina is. "He's like, 'Oh my God. All right, Lan, you're exactly where you need to be to play the part, but I'm going to go over there.'"

We're glad Lana has a guy who understands the lengths an actress sometimes has to go to embody a role.

Once Upon a Time returns with brand new episodes in 2013 on ABC.
