Judith Light Joins TNT’s Dallas!


This is going to be good! TVLine is reporting former One Life to Live and Ugly Betty star Judith Light has joined the second season of TNT’s hit series Dallas . Reportedly, she’ll portray the recurring role of “an authoritative and controlling battle-ax who will fight to the death to protect the people she loves. And for the people she loves, she uses every psychological trick in the book to make them do what she wants.”

TVLine doesn’t reveal which character Light will portray, but it speculates if she might play Ann Ewing’s (Brenda Strong) mother.

Could this dragon lady be the mother of Brenda Strong’s Ann Ewing? Seems like a safe bet, particularly in light of the imminent arrival of a character we’re guessing will turn out to be Ann’s estranged daughter.

Are you ready to see Light get her soap on once again?

    It’s going to be great to see her but no offense … it’s Judith Light WAY TOO YOUNG to play Brenda Strong’s mother? Especially if she’s going to have old Bobby Ewing as her son-in-law??? Judith could be more likely Ann’s sister who took care of Ann’s estranged daughter.

    WITH JUDITH ONLY BEING NOT QUITE 11 YEARS OLDER, MIGHT BE A BIT DIFFICULT.

    Even with your big letter words I don’t get what you are trying to tell me. What might be difficult? Judith Light is about 10 yrs older than Brenda Strong. She could appear as her older sister instead of as her mother – that’s all I said.

    Even with the small letters, Judith Light is not old enough or doesn’t appear to be old enough to play Brenda Strong’s mother.

    Which I questioned all along. In my first post I even make the suggestion that she appears as Ann’s older sister. Which I then said again in my last post.

    To those who may or may not know. On the original Dallas …Mrs Ellie ( Barbara bel Geddes ) is only 9 years older than her son J.R. (Larry Hagman).

    Barbara bel Geddes ( Mrs. Ellie) was born in 1922.
    Larry Hagman (J.R.) was born in 1931.

    And that worked out fine.

    Another example

    On the sitcom The Golden Girls

    Estelle Getty (Sophia) who played the mother of Bea Arthur ( Dorothy) was born in 1923 … And Dorothy the daughter was born in 1922.. And that worked out really well also.

    So I think Judith Light as Brenda strong mother will work out fine also.
