Willa Warrenplayed by Alison Pill
Willa Warren, the Warren’s perfect, tightly laced daughter, has never shaken her childhood guilt over letting Adam disappear on her watch and has become deeply religious in the ten years since it happened. In an effort to make up for the pain she's caused her family, she's thrown herself into shaping Claire's powerful political career, often at the expense of her own personal life. Smart, ruthless and cutting, Willa's cool and calm exterior often fools her rivals who never think to question what secrets of her own she's hiding.
