Mira Sorvino has joined the cast of TNT’s Falling Skies.
Sorvino will play Sara, who survived the alien inasion on an isolated farm, with her character described as a perfect match for bad boy John Pope (Colin Cunningham).
“She’s a ballsy, brash woman with a complicated past. She proves to be a worthy foil — and ultimately a love interest — for Pope,” executive producer David Eick told TV Guide. “They have a classic love-hate dynamic. She has her secrets, weaknesses, hypocrisies and vulnerabilities.”
Falling Skies will return Summer 2014 on TNT.
From executive producer Steven Spielberg, Falling Skies stars Noah Wyle as a former college professor who becomes the leader of a group of soldiers and civilians struggling against an occupying alien force.
