ABC's Alien Thriller The Whispers Makes Major Casting Change

TVLine has learned exclusively that series regular Brianna Brown — who portrayed Lena, the photojournalist wife of Barry Sloane’s character, Wes, in the pilot — has exited the series for creative reasons.

The role will be recast and Brown’s scenes will be re-shot.

Produced by Steven Spielberg’s Amblin TV, The Whispers (fka The Visitors) chronicles a race against the clock to defeat an unseen alien enemy out to destroy the world by using the most unlikely and unsuspecting inhabitants on the planet: the children.

Brown’s previous credits include stints on Devious Maids, True Blood and General Hospital. She kicks off a recurring gig as FBI officer Juan Badillo’s widowed wife on USA Network’s Graceland on June 18.
