In the Season 2 premiere of Madam Secretary, Elizabeth McCord (Tea Leoni) takes the oath of office when the president’s plane disappears. Chief Justice of the Supreme Court (Morgan Freeman!) does the honors. (Freeman is the show’s producer and he directs the episode.) Meanwhile, Elizabeth’s husband Henry (Tim Daly) is assigned a new Defense Intelligence Agency handler, Jane Fellows. Madam Secretary creator Barbara Hall spoke about the new relationship to Yahoo, “I think [there’s going to be] a little bit of headbutting, because it’s an odd relationship, to be brought into the world of intelligence and just how that works.”
Jane Fellows is portrayed by Jill Hennessy. The Canadian-born actress is best known for her role as Dr. Jordan Cavanaugh on Crossing Jordan. She’s also known as ADA Claire Kincaid on Law & Order from the 1990s. More recently she had a recurring role on The Good Wife as Rayna Hecht. Madam Secretary airs Sundays at 8pm on CBS.
