Now that Halle Berry is set to return to TV in CBS’s summer series “Extant,” her husband, Olivier Martinez, wants to get in on the action.
“The Wrap” reports that the French star has signed on for the role of Margaux’s father, Pascal LeMarchal, on “Revenge.”
Pascal is described as “a media magnate who’s competitive with Conrad (Henry Czerny) and has a complicated history with Victoria (Madeleine Stowe).”
On the nighttime soap, Margaux is played by French-Canadian actress Karine Vanasse, who will be bumped up to a series regular in season 4.
Martinez’s character has been referenced repeatedly, as Margaux’s relationship with her father has been a source of tension for her.
The French transplant set up shop in the Hamptons to start a magazine, which her father did not approve of, and she fell for Jack Porter (Nick Weschler) along the way.
ABC's “Revenge” will air one final January episode this Sunday before returning on Sunday, March 9 at 10pm. What do you think of this bit of casting scoop?
