Renee Elise Goldsberry Hamilton

Renee Elise Goldsberry‘s newest gig is plucking her out of the 1700s and dropping her into the 25th century.

Currently starring in the Broadway smash Hamilton — for which she recently won a Tony Award — Goldsberry has joined the cast of Netflix’s sci-fi drama Altered Carbon, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Based on the 2002 novel by Richard Morgan, Carbon is set in a futuristic world where the human mind can be digitally transferred from one body to another.

Goldsberry will play Quellcrist Falconer, a “master strategist” who’s leading a rebellion against the established order. She’s also the love interest of Takeshi Kovacs (played by The Killing‘s Joel Kinnaman), a warrior who — after being imprisoned for 500 years — is placed into the very future he fought to prevent.

In addition to her extensive work on Broadway, Goldsberry also boasts an impressive small-screen resumé. Along with recurring roles on The Good Wife, Law & Order: SVU and The Following, she’s also made appearances on Younger, Masters of Sex and White Collar, among many other shows.
