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

Nature doesn't recognize good and evil Philip. Nature only recognizes balance and imbalance. I intend to restore balance to our world. Whatever it takes.

Walternate

Elizabeth: Sometimes what we have is not the world we want, but we have our hearts and our imaginations to make the best of it. I will promise you this: I will be the best mother I possibly can be to you. I'll take care of you, I will protect you and I will never let anyone take you away from me. No one. Not ever.
Peter: But you're not her, are you? You're not my real mother.
Elizabeth: You were sick. You were very sick for a long, long time and I think it confused you. Yes, I am your mother, of course I am.
