Actress Brenda Strong is to appear on screen in an upcoming episode of Desperate Housewives.

Strong does voice work on the show playing Mary Alice Young, the narrator of every instalment.

The 50-year-old will portray Mary Alice on camera in the April 25 flashback episode of the ABC drama.

"I will be on camera on Desperate Housewives, not just doing the voice," Strong told TV Guide.

She added: "They did a really nice arc for Mary Alice where she is on camera to illuminate the history of one of our more mysterious characters on Wisteria Lane, so there's some juicy stuff."

The character apparently only appears during crucial moments in the show's history. Strong called the upcoming instalment a "do-not-miss episode" that will feature a different side of Mary Alice.

She continued: "In this specific episode, you get to see her fierceness. And you get to see her compassion, and those are the two aspects of the character that I was so happy to be able to bring forward."
