Vikings Star Alyssa Sutherland Ventures into The Mist



While we don’t know a whole lot about Spike’s upcoming ten-episode TV adaptation of “The Mist,” we do have to say that the casting so far has us optimistic about the project.  Today comes the news that Alyssa Sutherland has joined the cast along with a few more details.

From the Press Release:
Alyssa Sutherland has joined the cast of Spike’s new scripted series “The Mist.” From TWC-Dimension Television (TV) based on the classic Stephen King novella, “The Mist” goes into production this summer and airs in 2017. The announcement was jointly made today by Sharon Levy, Executive Vice President, Original Series, Spike, and Bob Weinstein, Co-Chairman, The Weinstein Company.

“The Mist” tells the story of a foreboding mist that arrives in one small town ushering in a terrifying new reality for its residents, putting their humanity to the test. What will people do to survive when blinded by fear?

Sutherland will play “Eve Cunningham,” a wife and mother who fights to protect her teenage daughter from unknown dangers lurking both inside and outside the mist while facing down her past. She joins Frances Conroy, who was previously announced as playing “Nathalie,” a modern day ecological martyr.

Alyssa Sutherland currently stars in History’s breakout historical drama series “Vikings” as Queen Aslaug. Before joining the cast of “Vikings,” Sutherland appeared in several independent films including The Fortune Theory, Don’t Look Up, and Day on Fire. On the small screen, she has appeared in NBC’s “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” and Fox’s “New Amsterdam.” A native of Brisbane, Australia, Sutherland began modeling at the age 15 before starting her acting career. She is represented by UTA and Untitled.

Christian Torpe and Amanda Segel are executive producers of “The Mist.” Bob Weinstein, Harvey Weinstein, and David Glasser are executive producers for TWC-Dimension Television with Megan Spanjian, Matthew Signer, and Keith Levine as producers.

Levy; Ted Gold, Senior Vice President, Scripted Original Series; and Lauren Ruggiero, Senior Director, Scripted Programming, will oversee the project for Spike with Vlad Wolynetz as co-executive producer.
