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.
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.
