It seems that fans of the hit series The Following have been mislead as it has been revealed that the character of Lilly Gray is not who she appeared to be. The character, played by Connie Nielsen, was originally thought to be the new love interest for Kevin Bacon’s character Ryan Hardy, but now has been revealed to be a devotee of Ryan’s enemy Joe Carroll. Not only that, but Gray is also the mother to the psychotic twins Mark and Luke (both played by Sam Underwood). Nielsen told The Hollywood Reporter about the sudden change in character, saying, “I had some pretty strong facts available to me but even we don’t know everything that’s about to happen. The scenes that come up and the forehand knowledge you acquire to play this character makes it really fun to play in each new episode and revealing new sides of her personality—in my case, of her personality disorder.” She also spoke to about the twist and the secrecy behind it saying, “It’s really hysterical because I’ve been unable to tell anybody, even my kids. I’ve received so many texts messages. My whole family and all my friends have been like,’ I knew it! I knew it!’” Nielsen then added, “I think its safe to assume that Lilly is very, very, very intelligent, that she has very few limitations put on her. She is very, very wealthy and can do an enormous amount of things. And she’s not burdened by empathy or guilt. That sets her free to be a lot of different things and do a lot of different things.” Lilly Gray was introduced into the series during the season premier as a survivor of an attack on the Manhattan subway system that took place on the anniversary of Joe Carroll’s rumoured death.
