The Law & Order: Special Victims Unit episode “Mama” is about Madeline Thomas (Fionnula Flanagan), a woman with Alzheimer’s who claims she was raped. It’s a particularly difficult case as the victim cannot provide details due to her illness. There are a number of suspects including an elderly man named Leonard (Hal Linden) and Sinatra impersonator Albert Romano (Joe Piscopo). The team also talks to a younger man named Henry Phillips (Todd Alan Crain) with his gorgeous mother Trudy Morris.
Trudy Morris is portrayed by Anne Archer. Archer is known for her TV roles on Privileged (Laurel Limoges), Ghost Whisperer (Beth Gordon), Falcon Crest (Cassandra Wilder), and Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice (Carol), among others. Archer is also well recognized for her roles in the films Robert Altman’s Short Cuts (Claire Kane), Patriot Games and Clear and Present Danger with Harrison Ford (his wife Cathy Ryan), and Fatal Attraction (Michael Douglas’ wife Beth Gallagher, for which she was nominated for an Oscar). Law & Order: Special Victims Unit airs Wednesdays at 9pm on NBC.
