Exclusive: Killed-Off Originals Star Joins NBC Drama Pilot Odyssey as Series Regular
Talk about a quick rebound!
The Originals‘ Daniella Pineda, whose bewitching character Sophie was killed off the CW drama last night, has already lined up her next gig.
TVLine has learned exclusively that the actress is joining NBC’s drama pilot Odyssey as a regular.
The Traffic-esque thriller centers on three families whose lives are torn apart when a stranded female soldier, a disillusioned corporate attorney and a disrespected political activist are pulled into the same shocking international military conspiracy.
Pineda will play Molly, a reporter for Time magazine who becomes a love interest for a leading protester against the G8 summit (played by The Carrie Diaries‘ Jake Robinson).
The Following‘s Adam Armus and Kay Foster co-wrote the script with Peter Horton (who will direct the pilot).
The cast also includes Pushing Daisies‘ Anna Friel, Lost‘s Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje and It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia‘s Nate Mooney.
