Adrienne Barbeau, who soap fans last saw on General Hospital as Suzanne as part of the dreaded Balkan storyline, has been cast in a juicy role on the hit ABC primetime soap, Revenge!

Barbeau will play the mother of Victoria Grayson! Yup, the role played by Madeleine Stowe!  Now that means, both the leading female characters mom’s are on the canvas this season in the Hamptons!  As has been witnessed so far in season two,  Emily Thorne’s mom (Emily VanCamp) is being played by Jennifer Jason Leigh!

Revenge creator Mike Kelley teased Barbeau’s entrance to TV Line  as Mom Harper,  “She is somebody who knows how to use people.   She taught Victoria what it takes to survive with very little, with your wit and your looks, really.  We will learn how the monster that is Victoria Grayson was put together, and we’ll learn that there’s a lot of damage that went into this little girl that became Victoria Grayson — and that it was at the hands of her mother. So, Emily and Victoria will share a lot more than they would have ever expected in terms of family.”

What do you think about the former Maude alum, and 70′s sex symbol, being cast as Victoria’s mom?  Thumbs up? Weigh-in!

    Great casting!

    This should be an interesting twist, huh? Kind of hated her on “General Hospital” until she turned evil! Hopefully she’s evil on “Revenge”!

    I look forward to this. I like REVENGE very much but hope there are not too many characters coming and going. I like to get to know characters very well. Would like to see William Devane return. Casting for this series is excellent!

    Revenge keeps getting better with every episode and leaves me on the edge waiting for more!
    (if daytime soaps were just half as good as the prime-time soaps they would have millions of viewers)

    I wonder how Adrienne likes play “Mother” to a woman only 13 years younger?!?
    I am looking forward to seeing her on “Revenge” though.
