NZ actress to have major role in Terra Nova

New Zealand actress Simone Kessell will have a major role in the new Steven Spielberg–produced series Terra Nova.

The actress joined the sci-fi drama during the reshoots of the pilot and has appeared in every subsequent episode, reports Deadline.

The series, produced for the Fox network in the US, centres on an ordinary family from 2149 who are transported back 85 million years in time to prehistoric Earth where they join a colony of humans who are building a civilisation.

Kessell plays the character of Alicia Washington, the second-in-command to colony leader Nathaniel Taylor (Steven Lang).

Her credits include the likes of Underbelly, Fringe, CSI: Miami and the 2008 film Frost/Nixon.
