In an exciting announcement made on TRadioV’s “Soapbox with Lilly and Martha,” “DALLAS” star Linda Gray has been added to the cast of the upcoming webseries, “WINTERTHORNE,” created by Michael Caruso of “DeVanity.”
The actress is set to play the role of Joanna Winterthorne, the powerful matriarch of the Winterthorne family, and mother to lead character, Miranda, played by Martha Madison.
Gray is known to many fans for her compelling role of Sue Ellen Ewing on “DALLAS,” which she played on both CBS and revived series on TNT for three more seasons. She also starred in the FOX series, “Models, Inc.,” and even made several appearances on the CBS Daytime soap, “The Bold and the Beautiful.”
Madison released a statement on adding Gray to the cast:
“I have so many special memories of watching ‘Dallas’ with my own mother, having Linda play my mother now feels like a full circle moment. It’s incredibly special. I’m ecstatic.”
Series creator and Emmy nominee, Caruso, also released a statement:
“Working with Linda Gray is a dream come true for me. I have been an enormous fan of her work for many years. I think she’s going to be brilliant in the role.”
“WINTERTHORNE” begins production in late March for three weeks. Among Gray, Madison, and Caruso, other stars who will be joining the cast include: Gordon Thomson and Josh Thrower.
