Jake's wife, Vanessa, is going to look a little different when Scandal
Season 6 arrives in 2017.
While it hasn't been confirmed by ABC, the role appears to have been recast.
Original actress, Joelle Carter
, got a gig on Chicago Justice
(also coming in 2017), so Jessalyn Gilsig
will get to do any television snuggery required by the role.
Of course, if things continue in the vein of Scandal
Season 5, we may not see much of Gilsig at all.
Olivia was trying to get Jake
to leave Vanessa at the alter.
The only reason Jake
didn't do it was because Rowan, sweet, daddy dearest, threatened to kill him.
Gilsig is used to being tugged between characters, both men and women, for purposes of plot.
She most recently played Siggy on History's Vikings
. You either loved her or you hated her.
Me? I cried my eyes out when she took her leave.
