After recurring in Season 1, Chelsey Crisp (Reconcilation, The Harvesting) has been promoted to series regular for the second season of ABC comedy Fresh Off The Boat. She plays the Huangs’ neighbor Honey. Based on Eddie Huang’s memoir, the 1990s-set series revolves around a Chinese family that moves to suburban Orlando. It centers on hip-hop-loving Eddie Huang, raised by an immigrant father (Randall Park) who is obsessed with all things American and an immigrant mother (Constance Wu) who is often bewildered by white culture. Crisp is repped by 3 Arts and DSA.
Frances de la Tour (Hugo) has joined the cast of the second season of Starz’s Outlander. Based on Diana Gabaldon’s best-selling books, Outlander follows the story of Claire Randall (Caitriona Balfe), a married combat nurse from 1945 who is mysteriously swept back in time to 1743, where she is immediately thrown into an unknown world where her life is threatened. When she is forced to marry Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan), a chivalrous and romantic young Scottish warrior, a passionate affair is ignited that tears Claire’s heart between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives. De la Tour will play Mother Hildegard, an intelligent and commanding Mother Superior. Season 2 is currently in production in Scotland.
