While the extent of it is unknown, Betty Suarez is undergoing a makeover this season on Ugly Betty.

Now, TV Guide Magazine reports that veteran actress Lynn Redgrave will play a key role in this transformation.

Redgrave will guest star on the two-hour season premiere of the show, which airs on October 9. She'll portray Olivia, a jewelry designer that Betty - newly promoted to Mode's features editor - comes across while working on a story.

Ugly Betty Quotes

I've had to say good-bye more times than I may have like, but everyone can say that. And no matter how many times we have to do it - even if it's for the greater good, it still stings. And although we will never forget what we've given up, we owe it to ourselves to keep moving forward. What we can't do is live our lives afraid of the next good-bye because chances are they are not going to stop. The trick is to recognize when a good-bye can be a good thing - when it's a chance to start again.


They always come back.
