Elizabeth's presence has loomed large over the series despite never having made an appearance. She's described as being beautiful and shrewd, and a "woman hardened too soon by life's events, but vulnerable when it comes to love."

"With her introduction, our world expands: The stakes grow even more heightened as we travel to another court filled with the beauty of privilege, passion and intrigue," executive producer Laurie McCarthy told the magazine. "The wait is over. Elizabeth is here. And I'm certain our audience will welcome her into the fold."
