More Casting News for A&E’s The Returned Includes Mary Elizabeth Winstead in a Lead Role
In case today’s earlier news that Jeremy Sisto has joined A&E’s “The Returned” wasn’t enough for you, we have info on three more actors who’ve signed on as well, including who the female lead will be!
Per Deadline, Winstead (pictured) will portray Rowan, the girlfriend of late musician Simon (Mat Vairo), who had a very difficult time getting past his death 10 years ago and now will have to adjust to his return.
Also cast in Carlton Cuse’s 10-episode adaptation of the acclaimed French series “Les Revenants” are Sandrine Holt (“House of Cards”) and Agnes Bruckner (The Woods, “24”). Holt plays Julie, a competent, compassionate doctor who is struggling in her personal life, while Bruckner plays the sheriff’s chief deputy.
Along with Sisto and Vairo, previously announced were Kevin Alejandro, Mark Pellegrino, and Sophie Lowe. Keith Gordon (“Dexter”) will direct.
“The Returned,” from A&E Studios and FremantleMedia North America, focuses on a small town that is turned upside down when several local people who have been long presumed dead suddenly reappear, bringing with them both positive and detrimental consequences.
