"It's been so long!"
So says Hilary Duff
's character, Rachel, in this teaser clip for Tuesday's episode of Raising Hope
And it's true for Duff as well, as this marks her first acting role since giving birth
to son Luca last March.
Duff, 25, plays the ex-girlfriend of Jimmy, played by Lucas Neff. Jimmy still holds a grudge – seven years after Rachel dumped him. But it turns out some meddling from third parties caused the breakup in the first place.
Duff has had a quiet first year raising Luca with husband Mike Comrie, stepping out now and again for date nights
and the occasional red carpet.
This is her first scripted TV gig since a guest role on Community
in 2010. She also appeared as a guest judge on Project Runway
this past September.
