....These types of characters are the one’s you love to hate, yet you actually admire and respect them in the deepest subconscious way. Even if they are right in their pursuits, you still root for them to lose just because they are that scheming and conniving....Well move over, folks, and make room, there is another name and character to add to that long distinguished list of legends and she is Eaddy Mays who portrays Mrs. Victoria Argent, wife of werewolf hunter Christopher Argent on the MTV smash hit series “Teen Wolf.”

Mays began her career in commercial radio and television and continued her involvement with community theatre. Mays’s career shifted radically when, in 2009, she was cast as a cancer patient for a Lexington Medical Center commercial, and she shaved her own head completely bald. Mays was later cast as "Victoria Argent" in MTV's supernatural hit drama series, “Teen Wolf,” where she was featured throughout season 2 as a chilling, memorable villain.
In 2010, Mays started her production company which has produced film and television projects, including the independent feature film, romantic comedy “Highland Fling,” which is currently making the rounds of the independent film festival circuit. Mays and her crew simultaneously have also produced the reality television show pilot, “Under the Kilt,” which captures the making and unfolding the annual Scottish Highland Games held in Greenville, South Carolina.
Eaddy Mays is a mother of three; has a long history of volunteering with children and at-risk youth; and she enjoys working with the Deaf community.
I can't help but think a lot of Mrs. Argent's Season 2 amazing-ness had to do with Jeff Davis realizing what he had in Eaddy Mays and just giving her crazier and crazier things to do..... Mrs. Argent kept my synapses firing just constantly wondering what her DEAL was.... And like I said, that's what I want from a show. I don't want everything spelled out. I don't want it all to be easy and understandable. I want mystery. I want questions. I want to wonder. For me Mrs. Argent was like the walking thesis statement that the rest of Teen Wolf sets out to prove: Fun comes from the strangest places.
She was never a classic, one-dimensional villain. Her motivations were pure (protecting her family), but her executions were flawed at best.....t’s not that we wanted her to win. In fact, we wanted her to lose. That way, we could watch her quietly controlled rage flicker behind her steely eyes.....she was a badass until the end.
