Revenge: Who's Playing Victoria's Mommie Dearest?

Date October 08, 2012

Adrienne Barbeau

It's the (second) mother of all castings on Revenge.

Months after tapping Jennifer Jason Leigh to play Emily's long-lost mom, the ABC nighttime soap has cast Maude alum Adrienne Barbeau as the mother of Victoria (Madeleine Stowe), TVLine reports.

Revengeboss on Emily's mom, her new man, the plane crash, Jack's downward spiral and more!

Creator and executive producer Mike Kelley told the site that Barbeau's character "taught Victoria what it takes to survive with very little, with your wit and your looks, really."

Kelley continued: "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."

Barbeau played Maude's daughter, Carol, on the landmark '70s sitcom, and has also guest-starred on Grey's Anatomy, Dexter, General Hospital and CSI: NY in recent years.
