Alexandra Metz has landed a recurring role in the CW’s new drama series Frequency, a remagining of the 2000 New Line Cinema film. It centers on a female police detective, who in 2016 discovers she is able to speak via a ham radio with her estranged father (also a detective) who died in 1996. They forge a new relationship while working together on an unsolved murder case, but unintended consequences of the “butterfly effect” wreak havoc in the present day. Metz will play Maya, a college student desperate to prevent herself from becoming a victim of a violent crime. Metz recently wrapped the TV movie Brimming with Love. She recurred on Chicago Fire and also appeared on How to Get Away with Murder and NCIS: New Orleans. She’s repped by Don Buchwald & Associates and McGowan Rodriguez Management.
Chai Romruen (Mako Mermaids) is set for a recurring role in the upcoming fourth season of the CW’s The 100. Romruen will play Ilan, a Grounder haunted by the horrors he committed while under Alie’s (Erica Cerra) control. Romruen is best known for his role on Netflix series Mako Mermaids, which just debuted its fourth season, and he recently wrapped the feature We Were Tomorrow. He’s repped by Independent Management Company in Australia and Primary Wave Entertainment.
