Scandal Season 4: The First Daughter Gets a Change of Face

at . Comments

When you next see First Daughter Karen Grant on Scandal Season 4, she'll look a little different.

Well, the truth is you'll hardly recognize her. Madeline Carroll, who created the role when Karen returned from boarding school in Scandal Season 3, has been recast with Body of Proof alum Mary Mouser.

Karen Grant Recast - Scandal

EW first reported the switch suggesting that the casting decision was made due to scheduling conflicts with Carroll, however TV Line later shared that the (now) eldest Grant child was recast as a result of a creative change.

After the President lost his son to a nefarious dose of meningitis at the hands of Rowan Pope, maybe this switcharoo means the First Family will be keeping their teenage daughter closer to home.

Mouser will make her first appearance as Karen in an October installment of Scandal.Would you welcome seeing more of the First Daughter?

Scandal returns Thursday, September 25 at 9/8c. If that's not good enough for you, catch everything leading up to the season premiere when you watch Scandal online.

Scandal Quotes

Olivia: I don't want normal, and easy, and simple. I want..
Edison: What? What do you want, Olivia?
Olivia: I want painful, difficult, devastating, life-changing, extraordinary love. Don't you want that, too?
Edison: Love is not supposed to be painful or devastating. Love isn't supposed to hurt, Liv.

I am not a toy that you can play with when you're bored or lonely or horny. I am not the girl the guy gets at the end of the movie. I am not a fantasy. If you want me, earn me! Until then, we are done.
