Dichen Lachman is heading 20,000 leagues under the sea for her next project.
The Dollhouse/Being Human beauty has joined the cast of ABC’s Shawn Ryan-produced undersea drama pilot Last Resort.
Set in the not-so-distant future, Last Resort follows the crew of a U.S. nuclear submarine who become fugitives after refusing to fire their missiles. Ultimately, they make camp on an island that hosts a NATO listening station and declare themselves an independent nuclear nation.
Lachman will play Tani, an intelligent and naive bar owner on the island. She is the daughter of an elder tribesman.
Andre Braugher stars as the captain and Scott Speedman is set to play his second in command. Autumn Reeser (No Ordinary Family) and Daisy Betts (Persons Unknown) round out the impressive ensemble.
