After several months of casting, the final regular cast members of "Terra Nova" have been signed.
Deadline is reporting that Christine Adams has joined "Terra Nova" only days after her series "The Whole Truth" was canceled by ABC. Adams is a British actress who has previously appeared in "Doctor Who," "Stargate SG-1," "Batman Begins," "Pushing Daisies," "Heroes" and "Lie To Me."
"Terra Nova" begins in the future as humanity faces extinction before discovering a way to travel 85 million years into the prehistoric past. Adams will portray Mira, the leader of a renegade colony near Terra Nova.
Jason O’Mara stars as Jim Shannon, a man who leads his family into the past as part of the tenth group of refugees to come to Terra Nova. Shelley Conn co-stars as his wife, Elisabeth with "Avatar" villain Stephen Lang as Commander Frank Taylor, the leader of the Terra Nova colony. Allison Miller and Mido Guzman have also been cast in supporting roles.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the three children of the Shannon family have also been cast. "Degrassi: The Next Generation" star Landon Liboiron will play Josh Shannon, a 17 year old boy who becomes close to Miller’s Skye.
Newcomers Naomi Scott and Alana Mansour have been respectively cast as Maddy and Zoe, the two younger daughters of the Shannon family.
"Terra Nova" is expected to begin production Australia later this month. The upcoming Fox series has already garnered a lot of attention for its line up of executive producers, including Steven Spielberg, Peter Chernin and Brannon Braga. It’s also been reported that the budget for the pilot already exceeds $10 million and that it may be the expensive pilot episode of all time.
The series will debut this spring as part of a special preview before returning as a weekly series next fall.
