On Masters of Sex, Virginia Johnson (Lizzy Caplan) gets a surprise visit from her parents. Her mother and father (Michael O’Keefe) are quick to judge Virginia’s controversial work (which is now gaining national attention) and the lifestyle choices she’s making. Think their opinions will sway Virginia to change? Neither do we.
Virginia’s mother is portrayed by the lovely Frances Fisher. The British-American actress got her big break in America on the soap opera The Edge of Night (Deborah ‘Red’ Saxon). She went on to star in big blockbuster films including Unforgiven, Titanic (the mother of Kate Winslet), and House of Sand and Fog, among others. In the 1990s, she was in a six-year relationship with Clint Eastwood. They have a 22-year-old daughter together, Francesca Eastwood. Masters of Sex airs Sundays at 10pm on Showtime.
