Yet another man is about to enter the life of Victoria Grayson.

The actress revealed little about Purefoy's character, except to say Victoria will have a "big, passionate love affair" with him. She also teased a strong connection between Victoria and Conrad's father, to be played by William Devane, who will also show up in the back half of the season.

Purefoy is best known for his role as Marc Antony on Rome.
