Jesus walks, and he is walking straight up to New York State for the season 3 premiere of “Revenge.” Could he end up sweeping Ashley right off of her feet? We wonder if it will be so.
According to TVLine, actor Diogo Morgado, who played Christ during the History Channel smash miniseries “The Bible,” has been cast to appear in the ABC series as Dr. Jorge Velez, a distinguished and attractive doctor who turns up in the Hamptons. We first heard about a similar role that was going to have an impact on a certain Ms. Davenport, and for the time being, we have to believe that this casting matches that casting call.
So with that, why not start to theorize? Obviously, the easy idea to come up with here is that Dr. Velez meets Ashley, romances her, and she decides to leave the world of deceit and deception for a simple but happy life. Of course, there is also the possibility that something happens to her that requires the help of a doctor, and he is the guy who arrives on the scene. Either way, Ashley Madekwe is no longer a series regular, so we cannot see her sticking around the show longer than an episode or two, as there really is not much of a use for her character anymore.
Morgado joins what is becoming an increasing large group of guest stars in the “Revenge” world for season 3. We already know that Justin Hartley will be appearing in multiple episodes as Victoria’s secret son Patrick, and “Pan Am’s” Karina Vanasse has scored an arc of her own as a woman who Daniel Grayson has a certain attachment to.
