FX's The Americans Promotes Two for Season 2
Clark’s bride will have plenty of opportunity to keep on blushin’ — and maybe start to realize she’s secretly wed to a Russian! — now that The Americans has promoted Alison Wright to a series regular for Season 2.
FX also announced on Tuesday that Annet Mahendru, who plays gorgeous triple-agent Nina, also has been upgraded for the retro spy drama’s sophomore run, which will premiere in January 2014.
“Annet Mahendru has been a revelation as Nina, bringing the character to life with a rich and subtle depth that keeps you guessing as to what’s really percolating under the surface,” exec producers Joe Weisberg and Joel Fields shared in a statement. “And Alison Wright’s portrayal of Martha is heartbreakingly real at every turn. We are thrilled to add them to our outstanding company of actors.”
Previously, The Americans made Susan Misner (aka Stan Beeman’s increasingly estranged wife Sandra) a series regular effective with Season 2.
The Americans marked Wright’s TV debut, while Mahendru’s previous credits include 2 Broke Girls and Big Time Rush.
