Jeff Ward (Manson’s Lost Girls) has been cast as the male lead opposite Amy Forsyth in the second installment of Syfy’s anthology horror series Channel Zero: The No-End Houseset for premiere in 2017.

Inspired by Brian Russell’s “Creepypasta” tale, Channel Zero: The No-End House tells the story of Margot Sleator (Forsyth), a young woman who visits the No-End House, a bizarre house of horrors that consists of a series of increasingly disturbing rooms. When she returns home, Margot realizes everything has changed. Ward will play Seth, a magnetic, soft-spoken and charismatic guy who has never fit in well but forms an immediate connection with Margot.

Ward starred as Charles Manson in the Lifetime movie Manson’s Lost Girls and had guest roles in The Mentalist, Law & Order: Criminal Intent and most recently Rosewood. He’ll next be seen in the feature The Boy Downstairs, alongside Zosia Mamet. He’s repped by APA and Sweeney Entertainment.

Channel Zero: The No-End House follows the first installment, Channel Zero: Candle Cove, which premieres October 11.
