Major Crimes: Jaime Ray Newman to Recur in 'Difficult' Storyline

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 Crimesrecently expanded Season 5 continues this Monday at 10/9c.

    She made a couple appearances on Stargate Atlantis also.

      As denoted above – many shows.

      • Bella says:

        Yep. Castle, NCIS, Grimm, the list goes on and on. Sounds like a very interesting storyline. I’ve wondered how parents navigate that divide, loving their child, but hating the crime they’ve committed.

  2. Juke says:

    What kind of name is Wildred? She couldn’t be something that sounds like a 38-year-old woman living in 2016?

    • Andrew says:

      @ Juke – Same thing I thought when I read the name. I could even accept Mildred, but Wildred?

      If the episode isn’t in production yet, hopefully they’ll change the name before the episode airs.

      Wildred sounds AWFUL.

    I’d forgotten about her. Cool.

    I love Kristina Cassadine!! As long as this episode has NOTHING to do with Rusty and his annoying mother, I’m cool. I think the show forgot we met Rusty as a prostitute because his home life was so bad. He hadn’t heard from his mother for so long and she didn’t care. She even abused him also. But now we’re suppose to feel sorry for her and want her to be a mother to a little girl? I’m so sick of that story

    • Karen says:

      I’m with you, blgdede, I’m OK enough with Rusty’s story line(s), but this thing with his mom is unnecessary clutter to me.

    I remember her in Eastwick. Very sexy.
