"She taught Victoria what it takes to survive with very little, with your wit and your looks," said Revenge creator Mike Kelley.

"We will learn how the monster that is Victoria Grayson was put together, and we'll learn that there's a lot of damage that went into this little girl that became Victoria Grayson - and that it was at the hands of her mother. So, Emily (Emily VanCamp) and Victoria will share a lot more than they would have ever expected in terms of family."

Barbeau, 67, is best known for her film credits, including The Fog, Creepshow and Swamp Thing, as well as her role in '70s sitcom Maude.

She later played a regular role on HBO's Carnivàle and has appeared in episodes of Dexter, Grey's Anatomy and CSI: NY.

Jennifer Jason Leigh has also joined the cast of Revenge for season two, playing Emily's long-lost mother Kara Wallace Clarke.

The series continues on Sundays at 9/8c on ABC and airs on E4 in the UK.
