‘Scandal’ Recasts First Daughter With ‘Body of Proof's’ Mary Mouser

ABC's “Scandal” has done something that definitely lives up to its “soapy” reputation. It has replaced an actor with a new actor in the same role.

The First Daughter will have a new face on the upcoming fourth season,” a show representative told TheWrap.

Madeline Carroll, who played Karen Grant on Season 3, has been replaced by “Body of Proof” alum Mary Mouser. Carroll was unable to continue in the role due to scheduling conflicts. Mouser will first appear in an October episode.

Mouser starred on “Body of Proof” as Lacey Fleming for all three seasons of the Dana Delany drama. She has appeared in recurring roles on ABC Family's “The Fosters” and CBS's “NCIS,” among several other series.
