TV show is introducing Cyrus' wife in upcoming episode

Guess who plays Cyrus' wife in the upcoming episode of the popular TV series 'Scandal'?

Emily Bergl  will play Jeff Perry's wife in 'Scandal'

According to EW, 'Shameless' star Emily Bergl will play the ex-wife of Cyrus, the Chief of Staff in TV hit series 'Scandal'.

Cyrus was married to Bergl before he came out as gay and the creator of show, Shonda Rhimes, is ready to take viewers back to Cyrus' past relationships as he prepares for his upcoming marriage to Michael.

“Shonda [Rhimes] wrote a really Cyrus-centric episode. How did this man come to be this man? She wanted to go into three or four different time periods of his experience.

A couple of them are about James [Dan Bucatinsky] and Cyrus, and they even have a bit of a reverberation and a facet of something that haunts Cyrus.” - Jeff Perry said to EW.


Bergl will make her first appearance as Scandal airs this Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
