With the battle between the reptilian visitors and the human resistors
set to heat up this spring on V, the ABC series has cast three actors in new roles I previously teased. They are:
UK actor Charles Mesure, who played Archangel Michael on Xena, Warrior Princess and J.D. Pollack on Crossing Jordan, will be recurring as mercenary Kyle Hobbes. Kyle is an in-demand black ops expert who forms an unlikely alliance with the resistance when he’s hired by Erica (Elizabeth Mitchell), Ryan (Morris Chestnut), Jack (Joel Gretsch) and Georgie (David Richmond-Peck) to strengthen their fight against the Vs.
Canadian actor Nicholas Lea (X-Files, Andromeda, CSI, Men in Trees and Kyle XY's Tom Foss) will be playing Erica's ex-husband who re-enters Erica and Tyler’s (Logan Huffman) lives at a crucial point in a two-episode arc.
And Canadian actress Lexa Doig, recognizable to sci-fi fans for her
roles in Andromeda, The 4400 and Stargate SG-1, has been cast as Dr. Leah Pearlman (not to be confused with Cheers barmaid Rhea Perlman). Dr. Pearlman is an OB/GYN treating Valerie Stevens (Lourdes Benedicto), who discovered she was pregnant in November’s cliffhanger. Will Dr. P be the one to detect that Val's unborn baby's looking a little green around the gills? And may have scales? And a tail....? We'll find out this spring!
