There’s a new First Daughter in town. Scandal has tapped Body of Proof’s Mary Mouser to play Karen Grant, who was previously portrayed by Madeline Carroll, EW has learned exclusively.
Carroll first appeared on the ABC political fixer drama during season three as the First Family’s daughter visiting from boarding school. However, the actress could not return in season four due to scheduling issues. Mouser will take up the mantle in an episode slated for October.
Karen is now one of the president’s two surviving children after Rowan orchestrated the death of Jerry Jr. in the season finale.
