Natalie Zea Will Stir Up Trouble Under the Dome

Natalie_ZeaIs Natalie Zea ready to turn the tables…?

After being victimized for much of The Following‘s freshman run, the actress is heading Under the Dome with a “continuing” role on CBS’ summer series, where it appears she will rouse some rabble and stir some pots.

Executive producer Neal Baer tells TV Guide Magazine that Zea, whose TV credits also of course include Justified, will play Maxine, “a woman who makes an alarming appearance” in Episode 9.

“If you think Jim Rennie” — one of the tale’s antagonists, played by Breaking Bad’s Dean Norris — “is trouble, you haven’t seen trouble yet,” Baer teases.

Based on the Stephen King novel about a community that is suddenly and mysteriously closed off from the rest of the world by a transparent membrane*, Under the Dome is set to premiere Monday, June 24. Filming wraps later this summer, long before Fox’s The Following starts up production on Season 2 (to again premiere midseason).

* The Simpsons Movie jokes have been made for almost seven months now, folks. Do better.

    She’s had a run of “nice girl” roles lately – it’ll be fun to see her play something a bit more sinister.

    under the dome will be canceled right after it Just glad she will be back for the following!

    • jbkr73 says:

      Under the Dome is a limited run series, so it will play out in it’s entirety, Plus, it’s not clear yet whether she’ll be back on The Following or not, just that this show won’t conflict with that one, if she is. I’m hoping we get to see more of her on Justified in season 5.

    Wow, Natalie is everywhere at the moment, she’s a very hardworking woman and a great actress, I love seeing her.

    Under the Dome looks great! can’t wait.

    • Sg. Grant says:

      She is also ridiculously beautiful. I miss her on Justified now that her role there is so limited.

    • She is very hardworking and dedicated. I would love to see her as Kate Mayfield in the Hopefully coming soon John Corey series based on the Nelson DeMille novels. The series introduces John Corey in Plum Island…. and hopefully will continue for a long long time at least up toand including his most recent bestseller…. THE PANTHER.
