Entity shares some of our favorite father-daughter acting combinations.

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.
