VIDEO: ‘Revenge’ Cast and More Disney/ABC Stars on the Red Carpet
Sources confirm to The Hollywood Reporter that James Purefoy has been cast as a love interest for the divorcing Mrs. Grayson. He’ll first appear in Episode 17 airing in late-February.
“She’s going to have a big, passionate love affair” with James’ character, Stowe tells The Insider, which reported the casting first. “The next number of episodes, you’ll see some of [Victoria’s] origins. You’ll see why she connects so peculiarly in such a strange way to people.”

Viewers will remember Purefoy in the iconic role of Mark Antony on Rome, which aired for two seasons on HBO and BBC. Since then, he has appeared on The Philanthropist, Camelot, and Injustice. His film credits include A Knight’s Tale and Resident Evil.
Revenge returns with new episodes on Feb. 8 on ABC.
