Victoria Grayson

Character Biography

Victoria Grayson is the glamorous and powerful matriarch of the Grayson family and the Queen of the Hamptons social scene. And Emily Thorne’s greatest enemy.

As the wife of billionaire Conrad Grayson, she appears to have it all: the perfect husband, children, and home.

It’s something Victoria has learned to live with, and something Emily Thorne is making her pay for.

Fresh off of an escape from the mental institution that Emily had her committed in, Victoria is out for some revenge of her own. And how she deals with David Clarke’s return-from-the-grave is yet to be seen…
