“Falling Skies” is returning for another season on TNT and they’ve added quite the catch. According to Deadline, “Harry Potter” alum Scarlett Byrne has been cast as a series regular on the sci-fi show.
The British beauty plays a “mysterious young woman with special powers and an unusual connection to the alien invaders.” Her character is said to be essential to the upcoming season, which has been increased from its usual order to 12 episodes. You can get a glimpse of her character in the new season four trailer below.
Byrne is most noted for her role as Slytherin witch Pansy Parkinson in the final three “Harry Potter” films, and has just finished production on the feature film “Skybound.”
