When “Scandal” returns to TV next month, the smash hit series will welcome a new cast member. Zoe Perry, the real life daughter of Jeff Perry, who plays vice-presidential candidate Cyrus Beene in the political thriller, is joining the show’s sixth season.
The Perrys will become the latest in a short list of father-daughter duos to act together on screen. But whether her character has a connection to Cyrus is unclear because everything about the new character, even her name, is staying a secret for now.
Zoe’s mother is another familiar face. Perry is the daughter of former “Roseanne” actress Laurie Metcalf. This will be the third Shonda Rhimes-produced drama Zoe has starred in, having previously apperared in “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Private Practice.” She has an extensive background in theater.
“Scandal,” which stars Kerry Washington as crisis manager Olivia Pope, is back on ABC from Jan. 19 and opens with the results of the presidential election being announced.
