‘Galavant’ fans grew to love Genevieve Allenbury as the Queen of Valencia, Isabella’s (Karen David) sharp-tongued and quick-witted mother. Although ABC’s musical comedy extravaganza has been off the air for a while, the magical series is still in our hearts. Fans continue to banter with the cast daily on Twitter and share wonderful stories of how the show has touched their lives (like having a ‘Galavant’ themed wedding!).
Thanks to Netflix, new viewers are falling in love with ‘Galavant’ every day and the demand for more ‘Galavant’ is growing. In our colorful conversation, Allenbury assures fans that the cast and crew are hopeful for a revival. She dishes on how everyone still keeps in touch and looks forward to working together again.
Although we may need to wait a while for another season or movie, the good news is that we don’t have to wait much longer for a mini-reunion. Allenbury and David will co-star in a scene from ‘Othello’ during L.A.’s Brit Week. You can catch the dynamic mother-daughter duo on stage Saturday, April 28 for A Shakespeare Jubilee hosted by Ioan Gruffudd (wink, wink ‘Forever’ fans!) and Joely Fisher.
Take a look at the impressive list of talent that will participate:
The cast of British and Hollywood actors includes: Genevieve Allenbury, Xander Berkeley, Eric Braeden, Jane Carr, Suzan Crowley, Karen David, Joely Fisher, Mira Furlan, Michele Greene, Ioan Gruffudd, Harry Hamlin, Lexie Helgerson, Isabella Hofmann, Finola Hughes, Lisa Locicero, Brian Lohman (and Impro Theatre), Nigel Lythgoe, David Melville, Joe Spano, Joan van Ark, Sabra Williams, Sherry Williams, Madeline Wu, Michael York, Luke Youngblood, Oscar Zhang and more to be announced.

I'm currently a National Examiner for "Galavant," "Once Upon A Time," "Saving Hope," and "Sleepy Hollow" on Examiner.com. I provide detailed, thoughtful, witty, and occasionally saucy recaps/reviews, as well as some fun and interesting interviews. You'll frequently see me tweeting away about my favorite shows.
