Casting News - June 23, 2020

Netflix's Another Life.

  • Tongayi Chirisa has been cast as a new series regular on the drama's upcoming second season. Moreover, Dillon Casey, Shannon Chan-Kent and Kurt Yaeger have joined the cast in recurring roles. Chirisa previously recurred on TV Land's The Jim Gaffigan Show and The CW's iZombie. Casey starred for two seasons in The CW's Nikita. Chan-Kent has recurred on Epix's Get Shorty and Freeform's Good Trouble. Yaeger has recurred on Cinemax's Quarry and CBS All Access' Tell Me a Story.
  • Chirisa will play Richard Ncube, a decorated veteran of many Earth campaigns. Having seen active duty, he is very adept at making life-or-death decisions, and dealing with the fallout after he's saved your life.
  • Casey will play Seth Gage, the Head of Homeland Security tasked with taking over the alien response, now that First Contact has been established. On the surface, he's affable and professional. Underneath, he's incredibly ambitious and determined to turn this alien arrival to his personal advantage.
  • Chan-Kent will play Iara, a hybrid alien-human A.I. who serves as a bridge between humans and their alien visitors. However, neither side completely trusts her - not the crew of the Salvare, nor the Achaia they encounter. Iara just wants to belong, somewhere. Anywhere.
  • Yaeger will play Dillon Conner, a trained military engineer who served various tours of duty in Earth's hot spots. He lost one of his legs to an IED. His mission has now taken him to space, where every day is a new adventure.
