24's Shohreh Aghdashloo Cast In Grimm As a Gypsy Queen image
Grimm will be back - at long last - in less than a month. We have the supernatural/fantasy drama series' return to look forward to, and now we can add a recurring appearance by Shohreh Aghdashloo to the list. 24 fans will likely recognize her for her villainous role as Dina Araz, mother of the reluctant teen-terrorist-in-training Behrooz on Day 4 of the series. Aghdashloo was a powerful woman in 24, and it sounds like she's powerful (in a different way) in Grimm as well.

TVLine Aghdashloo is set to play the recurring role of Stefania Vaduva Popescu, "a powerful ally sought out by Claire Coffee’s Adalind. Stefania is referred to as the 'Zigeunersprache,' or Queen of the Schwarzwald Gypsies, and her family’s roots run deep in the woods of Austria" We'll see her first appearance in the NBC series at some point in April. HEr associations with Adalind suggest she might not be the friendly sort, but we'll have to wait and see how she fits into the story.

In addition to 24, Aghdashloo's TV credits include EW, NCIS, House M.D., and The Mob Doctor. She also played the female doctor who got porcupine-hugged to death by that mutant in X-Men: The Last Stand. But I always associate her best with her roll as the beautiful but intimidating Dina Araz in 24, and with her voice, that has a deep, soothing sort of tone to it ("Behrooooz"). It'll be great to see what she's up to in Grimm (it's definitely not difficult to imagine her in a Queen role of some sort), which is set to return to NBC for the rest of its second season on Friday, March 8 at 9:00 p.m. ET.
