Ashanti, Torrey DeVitto & Elle McLemore Join ‘Army Wives’ As New Series Regulars

With original cast member Kim Delaney set to depart Lifetime’s Army Wives as it heads into its seventh season and Sally Pressman scaling back from a series regular to recurring, the veteran drama is adding three actresses as series regulars – Ashanti, Torrey DeVitto  (Pretty Little Liars, The Vampire Diaries) and Elle McLemore.

In her first series regular role, singer-actress Ashanti will play Latasha Durant, an optimistic mother of three, a sexy, fun woman who knows how to keep a husband – and how to keep him in line. DeVitto will play Maggie Hall, a sexy and smart Ex-Army Airborne, now a truck driver married to a Staff Sergeant with a teen daughter decided to get out of the Army to devote herself to being a wife and mother. McLemone will play Holly Gordon, a sweet, wide-eyed, bespectacled farm girl newly married to a soldier who is lonely and homesick. Filming on Season 7 will begin in mid-December in Charleston, South Carolina. APA-repped Torrey stars in Lifetime’s upcoming holiday movie The Real St. Nick.
