Amy Madigan Cast in FRINGE As Olivia’s Mom

Amy Madigan

Oscar nominated actress Amy Madigan will be joining the cast of the Fox show FRINGE as a guest next season. Madigan will play the role of FBI Agent Olivia Dunham’s mom in about four episodes during the upcoming third season of Fringe.

It has long been established on the show that Dunham’s mother is dead. However, with season 2 ending with Olivia trapped in the alternate universe, the show’s writers have ample opportunity to introduce Madigan as Olivia’s mom in the alternate universe. Madigan will reportedly appear in the very first episode of the season and then is at least four more episodes.

I wonder what that reunion is going to be like… Any thoughts?
