It’s been hinted at before, but now it’s official – President Allison Taylor is divorced from her husband Henry at the start of the eighth season. Which is really quite unfortunate since Colm Feore is such a great actor.
Apparently, 24’s First Gentleman couldn’t get past President Allison Taylor’s ratting out their corrupt daughter on last season’s 24 finale. When next we see Emmy winner Cherry Jones as Madam Prez this January, she will be minus both a wedding ring and a husband!
“I’m not married anymore,” Cherry tells me of her character’s status. “I am the first woman and divorcée in the White House.” Cherry says there will be only a brief discussion of the divided Taylor family early in the eighth season before Allison refocuses on world peace. “Obviously,” says Cherry, “the marriage was not as strong as we were led to believe.”
