Torchwood: Meet Esther
The third major new character in Torchwood: The New World has been cast. According to TV Line, American actress Alexa Havins (All My Children, CSI: Miami) will play Esther Drummond.
Esther is described as “a CIA Watch Analyst who possesses an unshakable faith in human nature and a monster crush on colleague Rex”. She’s definitely not Toshiko 2.0.
Havins’ character joins other regulars Jack (John Barrowman), Gwen (Eve Myles), Rex (Mekhi Phifer) and Oswald (Bill Pullman).
The article also confirms that actress Dichen Lachman (Dollhouse, Neighbours) will guest star in the first episode.
Torchwood: The New World airs this Summer on BBC1 and Starz.
