Yasha Jackson (Manifest) is set for a recurring role on HBO Max’s thriller series The Flight Attendant, starring and executive produced by Kaley Cuoco.
The Flight Attendant is a story of how an entire life can change in one night. Cassie (Cuoco) is a flight attendant who wakes up in the wrong hotel, in the wrong bed, with a dead man – and no idea what happened. Michiel Huisman, Colin Woodell, Zosia Mamet, Merle Dandridge and Griffin Matthews also star.
Jackson will play Jada Harris, a flight attendant who shares routes with Cassie and also works the first-class cabin. Polished, poised and skilled in the passive-aggressive arts, Jada can kill you with a cutting comment while still smiling.
