Catching up with the Queen of Valencia: Genevieve Allenbury on Brit Week, ‘Galavant’ reunions and a possible revival

‘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.
