Fresh off her stay at Bates Motel, Jaime Ray Newman is set for a recurring run on TNT’s Major Crimes.
TVLine has learned exclusively that beginning with Season 5, Episode 11 (airing Monday, Sept. 5), Newman will play Wildred Darnell, the mother of a young White Supremacist responsible for killing several mixed race couples and who got involved with a mass shooting inside the law enforcement community.
Wildred’s struggle to grieve for the son she raised — coupled with her outrage at the man he became — will lead her to make a difficult decision.
Newman’s many previous TV credits also include Wicked City, Drop Dead Diva, Eastwick, Eureka, Veronica Mars and General Hospital.
Major Crimes‘ recently expanded Season 5 continues this Monday at 10/9c.
