The 30-year-old actress will return to the show as Marie-Jeanne Valet, Allison’s ancestor, in the forthcoming episode, “The Maid of Gévaudan”.
“Basically, Jeff [Davis] just said, ‘France in the 1700s,’ and I was in,” Crystal shared with BuzzFeed. “He was definitely playing into my emotions. He knows that I have been dying to do a period piece and I love getting my head around different accents and different cultures. He didn’t even have much of a character worked out other than it was based on the Maid of Gévaudan. And I knew the legend, so before really knowing anything further, I said yes.”
She added about bringing Allison back to life: “Allison had such an amazing end to her life, I feel like bringing her back in any way might tarnish that beautiful story.”
