Beauvais will play Veronica Garland. A steely, put-together socialite and businesswoman whose beauty, cunning and drive form an intimidating package. After marrying widower Frank Garland, Veronica craftily displaced Frank’s daughter, Simone (Ashley Madekwe), as the woman of the house, creating bad blood between the two. She is so protective of her status in the family and of her two sons, Ron (Caleb Castille) and Derek (Christopher Meyer), that one is left to wonder: just how far will she go to maintain her standing?
Beauvais was recently seen in the CW’s Siren and The Magicians on Syfy. She’ll next appear in a recurring role opposite Dennis Quaid in Netflix’s Merry Happy Whatever and in Paramount Pictures’ Coming 2 America sequel to the hit 1988 comedy with Eddie Murphy. Beauvais is repped by Innovative Artists and Gilbertson Entertainment.
