Revenge fans have a lot to look forward to next season!
Emily VanCamp is getting two big blasts from her secret past - an ex-lover, played by Barry Sloane, aaaaand the arrival of the momma we all thought was dead!
The show's producers just announced that the actress slated to play Emily / Amanda's evil momma is … Fast Times at Ridgemont High star Jennifer Jason Leigh!
Revenge creator Mike Kelley says Jennifer's character is one complicated Clarke, explaining:
"This [character] is going to have some deep psychological issues. So we’re going to need somebody that can play volatile and dangerous; all of the scariest parts of Emily’s personality are going to be present and apparent and a little bit out of control in her mother. But at the same time, what works so great for Emily is that sweet façade, so this woman needs to feel like she’s got potential for kindness. You look at her and you don’t know that she’s as damaged as she is inside. But you’ll quickly learn that this is a very dangerous person.”
Our sources tell us the evil matriarch will be revealed early next season.
Can. Not. Wait!!!
