Masters of Sex Kelli O'Hara

Masters of Sex Recruits Kelli O'Hara as Masters' Long-Lost Love in Season 4

Masters of Sex has reached into Masters’ mysterious romantic past and pulled out Broadway vet Kelli O’Hara.

TVLine has learned exclusively that the Tony-winning actress is joining the Showtime drama’s ’70s-set fourth season as a long-lost love of Michael Sheen’s tightly wound sex researcher. O’Hara’s character, Dody — who will be around for multiple episodes — surfaces to clear up a mystery about their abrupt parting many years ago.

This is hardly the first time Masters of Sex has raided The Great Way way for talent; the series counts among its series regulars Tony winner Annaleigh Ashford.

Other Season 4 guest stars include Niecy Nash (Getting On) and David Walton (About a Boy).

Masters of Sex Season 4 debuts Sunday, Sept. 11, at 10/9c.

    Master Of Sex, The Musical?

  2. Margo Elle says:

    Kelli is a Broadway star and legend in her own right. It will be amazing to see her on television for a bit. INCREDIBLE TALENT.

    Interesting. Is “Masters of Sex” the blind item from a few weeks ago?

  4. RK Tarasco says:

    In reality, Dody is the woman who Masters was in love with in his youth, and marries after Virginia. He stays married to her until he dies. It’ll be interesting to see how they deal with his first and last love given the current state of his relationship and life.
