A Terrorist & A Witch Board CW’s ‘The Messengers’
Homeland alum Navid Negahban and True Blood’s Lauren Bowles have booked recurring roles on the midseason series from writer/co-EP Eoghan O’Donnell (Teen Wolf), The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Bowles, who has played Holly on the HBO vampire drama for the past four years, will portray Sen. Cindy Richards, a hard-working, passionate politician driven by a painful personal past. When she crosses paths with the so-called Messengers, she’s not only in the midst of a reelection campaign, but also on the verge of making choices that may have a long-lasting impact far beyond the Beltway.
Negahban, who played terrorist Abu Nazir on the Showtime drama, is set to play a Middle Eastern prime minister whose responsibility of keeping peace in his volatile country weighs heavily on him, and may force him to make some very unpopular decisions.
