Dollhouse's Dichen Lachman Joins Scott Speedman And Andre Braugher In ABC Pilot Last Resort
Dichen Lachman seems to be jumping from one cool project to the next, and this latest bit of casting news is no exception. At present, Lachman is currently playing the fanged Suren in Syfy's Being Human, and making a right mess of Aidan’s attempt to avoiding his own personal body count. Her next project could put her on ABC, assuming things go well for Shawn Ryan’s pilot Last Resort.
The Shawn Ryan produced pilot follows the crew of a U.S. submarine that refuses to fire their nukes and declares themselves an independent nation on an island with a NATO listening station. According to TV Line, Lachman has been brought on board to play an island local named Tani, a bar owner who is described as intelligent and naive. She’s also the daughter of an elder tribesman.
Prior to Being Human, Dachman played the role of Sierra on Dollhouse, and appeared in an episode of Starz’ Torchwood: Miracle Day. She joins Andre Braugher, Scott Speedman, Autumn Reeser, and Daisy Betts in The Last Resort. Given the premise, Shawn Ryan's involvement and the cast, this is shaping up to be one of the more promising sounding pilots in development.
