Defiance continues to get cast added…Deadline reports that actresses Mia Kirshner and Fionnula Flanagan have join the cast.
Kirshner (The Vampire Diaries, The L Word) has been cast as Kenya, the “self-assured, dauntless town madam whose unvarying devotion to the town of Defiance has inexorably woven her into many of its complicated affairs.”
Flanagan (Lost, The Others) will play Nikki, the “popular ex-mayor of the town whose intrinsic expertise from her years on the job have made her a trusted mentor to her successor, Amanda (Julie Benz).”
Production is expected to start shortly in Toronto. For more information about the TV/massively-multiplayer online game crossover, see our original announcement.
