One of the great actors during the big primetime soap era, Knots Landing’s William Devane, has been cast as Edward Grayson on ABC’s Revenge.
According to EW.com , “Devane will play the father of Conrad Grayson (Henry Czerny) and patriarch of the powerful Hamptons clan.”
In story, Edward Grayson is summoned to Southampton by none other than Victoria Grayson (Madeleine Stowe), to help in her divorce battle against her estranged husband Conrad. The Grayson divorce storyline will only continue to heat up when the series returns on Jan. 4. As of right now, Devane is set to appear as Edward Grayson in episodes 14 and 15, which are currently scheduled to air in February.
Of note: Episode 15 is what Revenge viewers have been waiting for where much about the beach murder that launched the series will be revealed.
Devane played Gregory Sumner on Knots Landing for ten years!
