Leverage has added a new face to its cast. Aleyse Shannon, who appeared on 11 episodes of Charmed on The CW, has joined the cast as a regular member for the IMDb TV series revival. She’ll play the sister of original series character Alec Hardison (Aldis Hodge). Hodge will recur on the Leverage revival because he’s the lead on Showtime’s City on a Hill series.
On Leverage, the characters are former criminals that try to right wrongs for people who need help. Beth Riesgraf, Gina Bellman, and Christian Kane return for the revival with Noah Wyle joining the cast.
“Breanna’s special skills include being a genius mechanical engineer (just ask her about her drones) and making social hacking and social media manipulation look like child’s play. Landing in the foster system after her parents’ tragic car accident, Breanna got lucky finding a home with Nana, and bonus big-brother Hardison (Hodge), who reached out to the spiky, scared 10-year old by teaching her computers and hacking. As Breanna trains in new skills with the other Leverage team members, she will need to learn to embrace and trust her new family.”
Leverage is currently in its second week of production.
