Grimm: Oscar Nominee Shohreh Aghdashloo Joins the Cast

Shohreh Aghdashloo GrimmAccording to TVLine, Grimm will be welcoming Oscar winner Shohreh Aghdashloo (House of Sand and Fog) in a recurring role beginning in April. The actress is set to play Stefania Vaduva Popescu, the “Zigeunersprache” (or Queen of the Schwarzwald Gypsies) and a potential ally for Adalind. There’s no word yet if the role could be extended to the (currently hypothetical) third season, though considering where Adalind and Nick left off in the fall finale, there’s likely to be a major showdown in the coming weeks that could send peripheral allies running.

When we left off with Grimm, Nick had lost everything he once held near and dear. Juliette has feelings for another man, causing Nick to move in with Monroe for the time being, while Captain Renard found out about the location of Aunt Marie’s trailer, potentially ruining a year and a half of progress that Nick had made toward becoming a truly great Grimm. Once he is able to process that Adalind was the one responsible for Juliette’s change of heart, he’ll be coming to take her out once and for all, hence her scuttling for allies to offset her lack of powers. Will he be able to track her down before she does even more damage to his life?

In addition to her role in House of Sand and Fog, Aghdashloo has appeared on the likes of 24, FlashForward, The Mob Doctor, Portlandia, and Grey’s Anatomy.

Grimm returns for the final 10 episodes of its second season on Friday, March 8th at 9:00 on NBC. You can check out a recap of the fall finale here, as well as previews of what’s to come here and here.

Will Stefania align herself with Adalind, even with the Grimm lurking? Why would Adalind even approach such a prominent figure in the Wesen world? Can Nick get to Stefania first and keep Adalind from gaining a strategical advantage over him?
