Hilary Jardine (Susan Jackson) will be Mildred in two episodes of the satirical comedy UPLOAD, a ten-episode series starring Andy Allo as Nora and Robbie Amell as Nathan. The show is set in a future where people can upload themselves into the afterlife of their choice. Nora works customer service for a high-end virtual reality environment. After Nathan is killed in the crash of his self-driving car, his girlfriend uploads him permanently into Nora’s virtual reality. Creator Greg Daniels told Danielle Turchiano of Variety: “Amazon is the perfect place to make UPLOAD, because of their strong creative team, and because it’s a company that could actually one day host a digital afterlife. If I get in good with them, I’m hoping for a big discount on my first thousand years.” UPLOAD is currently filming in Vancouver
Jardine is also Katie Saunders in MORNING SHOW MYSTERIES: A MURDER IN MIND, the third in a series of films based on the series of novels by Today Show host Al Roker. In this one, Cookbook author Billie Blessings (Holly Robinson Peete) is drawn into a murder investigation when her friend Katie becomes a suspect after the police discover the victim was blackmailing her. Written by Amber Benson, A MURDER IN MIND will next air on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries on Sunday, 28 April at 5pm.
Trezzo Mahoro (Mohamed) will reprise the role of Lucas in TO ALL THE BOYS I’VE LOVED BEFORE 2, a sequel that likely is partially based on “P.S. I Still Love You“, the second book in the series by Jenny Han. Back in August 2018, before the sequel was announced, Han told Haun Nguyen of Indiewire: “There’s so many things in the second book that I would love to see in a sequel. The whole reason why I wrote a second book was for the character of John Ambrose McClaren, who is a fan favorite, and he’s a favorite of mine too. I would love to see that explored, and also there’s a character called Stormy that I love to write. I would love to see that.”
McClaren will be played by Jordan Fisher, and will be Peter’s main rival. Stormy (Holland Taylor) lives in a nursing home and gives Lara Jean advice on romance. TO ALL THE BOYS I’VE LOVE BEFORE 2 is currently filming in Vancouver.
Marci T. House (Major Stoker in “Seen You“) will be Chief Debra Dunn in PICTURE PERFECT MYSTERIES, which will star Alexa PenaVega as a videographer and photographer who takes up amateur sleuthing with some success. She also uses a police scanner to find breaking stories and sell film footage to local news stations. While doing this, she finds herself frequently encountering one particular police detective, played by Carlos PenaVega. Trezzo Mahoro is also in the cast. PICTURE PERFECT MYSTERIES will premiere on Hallmark Movies and Mysteries on Sunday, 2 June at 9/8c.
Caroline Cave (Joline) will be Beth Marzdan, the part-mermaid sister of Rick Marsden, in six episodes of SIREN. Rick was discovered to have mermaid ancestry when Ben’s mother (Sarah Jane Redmond) surreptitiously took a DNA sample from Helen (Rena Owen). Rick told Helen he had a sister named Beth, who apparently wants nothing to do with her brother, and may or may not be aware of her mermaid heritage. The siblings’ last names are spelled differently on SIREN’s IMDB page, which could be a typo, but might reflect a further attempt by Beth to distance herself from the rest of her family. The second half of SIREN Season 2 begins 13 June on Freeform.
