Gail O’Grady Joins ‘Revenge’ as Conrad’s First Wife


Gail O’Grady Joins ‘Revenge’ as Conrad’s First Wife


Move over Victoria (Madeleine Stowe) and Lydia (Amber Valletta), because Conrad’s (Henry Czerny) first wife is coming to the Hamptons and with quite the baggage aka even more shocking secrets, E! News exclusively reports.

So, just who will be portraying the first wife of the Grayson patriarch on the ABC drama ‘Revenge’? It’s none other than Gail O’Grady, who is known for her roles on ‘NYPD Blue,’ ‘American Dreams,’ ‘Hellcats,’ and many other small screen programs.

O’Grady’s character, named Stevie, is described as “West Coast posh” and is quite the woman scorned, as Conrad left her for Victoria. The two have been divorced for over 25 years. In per ‘Revenge’ fashion, O’Grady’s character will show up unexpectedly in Episode 13.

As ‘Revenge’ showrunner Sunil Nayar recently revealed about Conrad’s first wife, "That's someone who has always been out there and now we're pretty much planning on having her introduced at some point in time. We're pretty excited about the part and she brings with her secrets that will also blow you guys away that are going to be great."

In addition to O’Grady joining the series, we can also expect Patrick’s (Justin Hartley) biological father to pop up in the same episode, E! Online reports. Named Jimmy Brennan, he is said to be “handsome” and “rugged,” but I can only imagine how this will affect Victoria and Grayson Manor.

Are you excited to see O’Grady strut her stuff on the hit series?

‘Revenge’ midseason finale airs Sunday at 9/8c on ABC.

Thought she moved to old actor heaven. I've only seen her in small roles the past decade or so. Is she hard to work with? Did she burn a few bridges along the way? Is she a talentless hack? Something has to explain her lack of serious screen time since NYPD Blue.
