Freeform's Close Up.

  • Millicent Simmonds will play one of the lead roles on the drama pilot written by Keith Staskiewicz. She starred in the 2018 feature film A Quiet Place and just wrapped production on the sequel set to be released in 2020.
  • She will play Jen, who plays a pivotal role in the town mystery. She is self-possessed and funny and tends to retreat into a rich imaginative inner world. Due to her impaired hearing, she is a natural observer and knows her town like the back of her hand. One to normally avoid attention at all costs, she takes a courageous step forward in the aftermath of a recent trauma.
