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.”

What do you think about the former Maude alum, and 70’s sex symbol, being cast as Victoria’s mom?  Thumbs up? Weigh-in!

This should be an interesting twist, huh? Kind of hated her on “General Hospital” until she turned evil! Hopefully she’s evil on “Revenge”!

I look forward to this. I like REVENGE very much but hope there are not too many characters coming and going. I like to get to know characters very well. Would like to see William Devane return. Casting for this series is excellent!

Revenge keeps getting better with every episode and leaves me on the edge waiting for more!
(if daytime soaps were just half as good as the prime-time soaps they would have millions of viewers)

I wonder how Adrienne likes play “Mother” to a woman only 13 years younger?!?
I am looking forward to seeing her on “Revenge” though.

GH’s Rebecca Herbst Thanks Fans for the Birthday Love

She is not often on social media, but when she does show up, it delights so many of her enduring fans. General Hospital’s Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth), who yesterday celebrated her birthday on May 12th, took to Twitter to share warm ‘thank you’s’ to a few fan factions who sent her some lovely gifts in honor and support of their favorite soap star.

Herbst expressed: “Yesterday was such a beautiful day! THANK YOU for all your sweet Birthday messages! #Friz & #Liason showered me with the most gorgeous flowers, cakes & goodies. And #Friz donated $2500 to #SmileTrain.  I felt very loved. I’m so grateful for each & every one of you. …XO”

Of course, the Friz fans loved Liz with Franco (Roger Howarth) and the Liason fans are those who love Liz with Jason (Steve Burton).

Now with Roger Howarth returning to the show – in what is at this juncture still a mystery as who he will play – will Rebecca be paired with Roger in story again, or not this time?  Do you think Liz might end up romantically with Finn (Michael Easton), or is there still a chance that down the line Liz and Jason could get back together, or could Liz meet someone new? Only time will tell!

For now, Herbst was thankful for the money donated to the Smile Train charity and all the wonderful gifts and messages that came her way.

So, what did you think of Becky’s thank you message?  Who are you hoping Liz winds up with romantically in the future?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.
