Amy Madigan Cast in Key Fringe Role

We asked, and Fox has answered.

Soon after the network announced that Fringe was casting for the key role of Olivia's mother, we hit up fans for their take on who should take on this part.

We now have the answer: Amy Madigan, most recently seen as Meredith's therapist on Grey's Anatomy and probably best known for her role in Field of Dreams, will recur on Fringe next season.

As first reported by Entertainment Weekly, Madigan's character may only appear "over there" and is described as a devoted mother with shocking ties to the Bishop family. She'll appear on the September premiere and recur in four episodes.

Fringe Quotes

Peter: Hello. Walter is that you? I can hear you breathing.
Janitor: Is this Peter Bishop?
Peter: Yes.
Janitor: I'm calling from NY. I know this is going to sound crazy but I just saw a woman disappear in front of my eyes.
Peter: Who is this?
Janitor: Her name was Olivia. She has a message for you; she's trapped in the other universe

You, Olivia, have the ability to bend things with your mind. That's what you're doing in this drawing, if you look at it the right way.

Walter
