“The Following” has picked up another member.
The Fox thriller has cast Jacinda Barrett in a recurring role.
As previously reported by TVLine, Barrett, who’s appeared on a number of episodes of USA’s “Suits” and recently starred in the short-lived ABC drama “Zero Hour,” will play Julia. The character is described as a very disarming and alluring woman whose mysterious intentions send several main characters in a frightening new direction.
Season 2 of the series, which stars Kevin Bacon as ex-FBI special agent Ryan Hardy, has cast a number of newcomers for its upcoming second season. This includes “90210″ alum Jessica Stroup, who’ll play Hardy’s niece Max, an NYPD cop who works in the intel division.
“Beautiful Creatures” actress Tiffany Boone and “Dexter” alum Sam Underwood have also signed on for the next season.
