Gwen Crawford
played by Jane Kaczmarek

Gwen (Jane Kaczmarek) is Emma's perfectly coiffed and extremely opinionated mother who finds herself in the midst of a midlife “Gwenaissance” of sorts -- writing beat poetry, wearing open-toed sandals, and discovering the joys of fro-yo. Now with Emma back in Pinebrook for good, mother and daughter (who are more alike than they would ever truly like to admit) continue to navigate their complicated relationship.
