I'm pretty sure quite a lot of people wonder why anyone would like Gina/Queenie, so I decided I'd share why I like her so much.
To start of I'd like to say Lana Parrilla plays her so well. Lana is the reason I started to love her. I have seen so many portrayals of the evil queen but no one has دیا her as much depth یا character as Lana. Even if a person doesn't like Gina they could at least admit Lana does a real good job; her eyes are very expressive, آپ can tell exactly what Queenie feels jut سے طرف کی looking at them. She also has this ability to change her voice tone according to whom she is portraying, Gina یا Queenie. Lana is one of those actresses who can make آپ love and hate a character at the same time.
Secondly I love Gina's complexity. I really like a character with a lot of depth. One would think she's evil, just evil but behind that there's a back story, a legit reason for her way of thinking. We've got woman who is just as miserable as those she cursed, unlike most portrayals of the queen Regina was hurt سے طرف کی her own curse (the loss of her father). She goes from Disney's typical heartless vileness to someone who is actually conflicted about her actions; whilst Disney's Queenie had no regrets about killing Snow, OUAT's Queenie cried when killing her father. It's a bit hard for a view to tell exactly how Gina feels when she has such conflicted feelings.
That's another reason I love Gina, she isn't as evil as she seems; deep down she just wants love and happiness. She's misunderstood and and almost a victim herself, she tries her best to find happiness she just approaches it the wrong way. After all she tries so hard to gain love and affection from Henry; she buys him nice toys and comic کتابیں and built him a new playground yet he doesn't care. She hasn't really even shown signs of physical abuse. People get so mad about her sending Henry to therapy but she just doesn't want Henry to hate her so much. Gina is the reason he lives in a mansion rather then some foster home. Gina also tries to keep him safe, most mothers would be alarmed if a strange woman who was in jail before (birth mom یا not) came into town threatening to take her son away. Part of the reason Gina keeps Henry away from Emma is because she doesn't want him to get hurt. I wouldn't say that that's particularly evil. Another reason I believe she isn't as evil is because unlike most villains she has the capability to love. The only reason her curse worked is because she sacrificed something she loved. She did love her father very much but gelt that this curse was the only way out of her misery. She was also able to love the genie; but it was one of those forbidden love cases, she was already married so loving the genie almost wasn't an option. She cared enough about him to try to save him from a possible execution. Even if that meant telling him she never loved him.
Gina had also loved Graham I doubt she would've punched Emma in the face for stealing him if she didn't care. In the end Gina/Queenie pretty much always loses loved ones she's just one of those people; the harder she tries the further away her دوستوں family and lovers seem to fade. I like the fact that she does have to potential to redeem herself.
In that sense she is someone people can relate to. The need for love and happiness is something everyone has. I like that I can relate to her; trying to find happiness and such. One can also relate to her desire for revenge. Most people have sought out revenge at least once in their life. I'm pretty sure a lot of people can to being in an unhappy relationship یا at least something as simply as being locked in their room (maybe not سے طرف کی their husband) but سے طرف کی an angry mom who found out they were dating that boy they weren't supposed to.
I also enjoy a vileness with a brain. She is smart and cunning. She doesn't just sit around watching others do her work for her she makes plans and carries them out herself. Queenie was smart enough to come up with this big curse and keep it going strong for years. She is smart enough to trick Emma making her look good (when she built the playground). And how she was smart enough to get Mr سونا to tell her his real name سے طرف کی using Chip.
That's another reason I like her; she can be humorous if she wants to be. Kidnapping Chip lol. And the fact that every time Mr. سونا says please she makes this priceless face and has to obey him.
I believe Regina needs some شائقین just like every other character. I hope this at least kind of helped people see why I like her.
