Madeleine Stowe to Visit 12 Monkeys, In a Big Switch From Her Film Role

Madeleine Stowe is returning to the 12 Monkeys universe.

The Revenge alum, who originated the role of Dr. Railly (now played on TV by Amanda Schull) in the original 1995 film, is set to appear in the Syfy adaptation as an entirely new character, reports.

Stowe will first arrive on-screen in the Season 2 finale as Lillian, a patient at a 1950s psychiatric ward who becomes integral to Cole’s journey — though prior to that, she will be heard delivering the season-opening monologue on April 18, setting up the story of how the world comes to an end.

Psyched for Stowe’s arrival? Sound off in the comments.

  1. She has defied the general laws of aging for the last 20 years. I find her even more beautiful now than I did when the original movie was made.

    Great movie; great series. Glad it got renewed and is coming back.

    Great news! I don’t watch Revenge, so she’s been sorely missed.
