Madeleine Albright to Guest Star on ‘Madam Secretary’
Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright will share the small-screen with her fictional counterpart this fall on the CBS drama “Madam Secretary. ”
The one-time secretary of State will appear as herself to advise the show’s top diplomat — Secretary of State Elizabeth McCord — on “a sticky situation … threatening to fracture her relationship with [faux] President Conrad Dalton,” CBS said in a statement.
Albright, a Czech immigrant who served during the Clinton administration as the nation’s first female secretary of State, this week visited the set of “Madam Secretary.”

Both she and the show’s star, Téa Leoni, tweeted out a picture of themselves wearing matching pins — a trademark accessory of the real-life diplomat. Leoni’s co-star, Tim Daly, and executive producer Lori McCreary also showed Albright some Twitter love, sharing behind-the-scenes photos of the former secretary during filming of the show’s sophomore season.
