Virginia Madsen Joins Swamp Thing

Virginia Madsen Swamp Thing

The DC Universe app series Swamp Thing continues casting as Virginia Madsen joins the cast as Maria Sunderland, a key series regular opposite Crystal Reed.

Virginia Madsen will play Maria Sunderland, who traded in her privileged upbringing for the swamps of Marais when she married local business magnate Avery Sunderland (not yet cast), but Avery’s life-time obsession with the swamp has driven a wedge between him and Maria. Her poised existence is shaken further when the return of Abby Arcane reawakens a deep grief over the loss of Maria’s daughter, Shawna, drawing her into the dark supernatural mysteries emerging from the swamp (via Deadline).

Madsen joins Crystal Reed as Abby Arcane, Maria Sten as Liz Tremayne, with the titular character yet to be revealed.

Swamp Thing

Swamp Thing is described as: When CDC researcher Abby Arcane returns to her childhood home of Houma, Louisiana, in order to investigate a deadly swamp-born virus, she develops a surprising bond with scientist Alec Holland — only to have him tragically taken from her. But as powerful forces descend on Houma, intent on exploiting the swamp’s mysterious properties for their own purposes, Abby will discover that the swamp holds mystical secrets, both horrifying and wondrous — and the potential love of her life may not be dead after all.

Virginia Madsen is known for a plethora of projects including Dune, The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair, Designated Survivor, American Gothic and lots more.
