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.”
