Not even Georgina Haig‘s trip to Fringe‘s future could’ve prepared her for the journey she’s about to take.
The Aussie actress has nabbed a leading role in The CW’s Mars-set drama pilot.
The untitled project follows an explorer team that arrives on Mars to join its first human colony, only to discover that their predecessors have vanished. Led by a woman whose husband is among the missing, the colonists are forced to change their mission from exploration and settlement to investigation and survival, all while navigating the hostile planet and their own personal demons.
Per our sister site Deadline, Haig will co-star as Gina Nolan, the mission’s intense, motivated and intelligent botanist. A true explorer at heart, Gina believes it is mankind’s destiny to investigate the universe, but she must prove herself before she can become a Mars colonist.
Haig — who has also held roles on Once Upon a Time, Limitless and Reckless — joins a cast that includes Neal Bledsoe (The Mysteries of Laura), Mouzam Makkar (The Vampire Diaries) and Carl Beukes (Dominion).
