Great news for Portia de Rossi fans now you can see the lovely wife of ellen DeGeneres on the television. We have missed Portia from the days when she starred in Ally McBean, Arrested Development and Better Off Ted.
Not only will the actress be returning to ABC’s Scandal next season, but she has been promoted to series regular.
Her character, Elizabeth ‘Lizzie Bear’ North had been recurring although de Rossi says she has already felt like a regular.
‘I’ve been here for the entire season, so, honestly, I already feel like I’m part of the family,’ she tells TV Line.
‘It would’ve been very sad for me not to come back. And to come back with a guarantee of a few more episodes than [I was in this season] is really fantastic. It’s just a great ensemble cast. And we’re all really excited about the show — still.
‘I came on as a fan, but all the actors are just as excited as when they first started the show.’
