Timeless has added someone to the cast who’s used to a ticking clock.
Annie Wersching, who played FBI agent Renee Walker on Fox’s 24, will recur on NBC’s freshman time-travel drama, according to our sister site Deadline. She’ll play Emma Whitmore, a woman hiding out in a cabin in the woods who’s connected to Flynn (Goran Visnjic).
Wersching also had recent roles on The CW’s The Vampire Diaries (as Damon and Stefan’s mom Lily Salvatore), Amazon’s Bosch and CBS’ Extant.
