Shameless Sherilyn Fenn

Meet the mother of Frank Gallagher’s other adult daughter on Shameless.

Twin Peaks alumna Sherilyn Fenn has landed the recurring role of Queen, an earthy and sensual grandmother many times over who loves to be naked, our sister site Deadline reports. She replaces the previously announed Kelly LeBrock prior to the character’s first appearance.

Queen had sex with Frank on top of a washing machine when they were both high on mushrooms at 16, resulting in their now grown daughter, Sammi.
