The political drama set in the Middle East, Tyrant, is back for Season 2. Bassam “Barry” Al-Fayeed (Adam Rayner) left his native land, a fictional country called Abbudin, to pursue a “normal” life in America. He succeeded. In California, Barry works as a pediatrician. He married a blond-haired, blue-eyed American woman and they have two American kids. But when Barry returns to Abbudin for a nephew’s wedding, his father – the long term dictator of Abbudin – dies and a revolution begins. After a failed coup, Barry is put in jail. His power-hungry, corrupt brother Jamal (Ashraf Barhom) who never left Abbudin, must decide between letting Barry rot in jail or executing him. Luckily, Barry’s American wife Molly Al-Fayeed is there to try to free Barry.
Molly is portrayed by actress Jennifer Finnigan. She’s best known for her roles as Bridget Forrester on the soap opera The Bold and the Beautiful, Dr. Tina Ridgeway on Monday Mornings, and Dr. Devan Maguire on Crossing Jordan. Tyrant airs Tuesdays at 10pm Fox.
