Tony and Emmy Award winning actress Judith Light has been tapped to join the cast of cable's hit show "Dallas". She will be joining the second season of the hit series and the role is a juicy one! According to TVLINE, the actress will be playing:
":....as an authoritative and controlling battle-ax who will fight to the death to protect the people she loves. And for the people she loves, she uses every psychological trick in the book to make them do what she wants.
Could this dragon lady be the mother of Brenda Strong’s Ann Ewing? Seems like a safe bet, particularly in light of the imminent arrival of a character we’re guessing will turn out to be Ann’s estranged daughter. Light — who most recently guest-starred as Kristen Johnston’s mother on TV Land’s The Exes — will recur throughout Dallas‘ second season, which is set to premiere on Jan. 28."
