Taylor will join the cast as Angelina, a Flight 828 passenger who has flown under Ben’s (Josh Dallas) radar so far. Her emergence will play an integral part in the lives of the Stone family this season.
In addition to Dallas, Taylor joins series stars Melissa Roxburgh, Athena Karkanis, JR Ramirez, Luna Blaise, Jack Messina, Parveen Kaur and Matt Long.
Clearly influenced by the 2014 mystery of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, Manifest focuses on Montego Air Flight 828, which landed safely after a turbulent but routine flight. The crew and passengers were relieved, but in the span of those few hours, the world had aged five years and their friends, families and colleagues — after mourning their loss — had given up hope and moved on. Now, faced with the impossible, they’re all given a second chance. But as their new realities become clear, a deeper mystery unfolds, and some of the returned passengers soon realize they might be meant for something greater than they ever thought possible.
Manifest is produced by Warner Bros. Television, Universal Television, Compari Entertainment and Jeff Rake Productions. Jeff Rake, Jack Rapke, Jackie Levine and Len Goldstein are the executive producers.
Taylor received a 2019 Critics’ Choice Award nomination for her starring role as Paige Jennings on the acclaimed FX series The Americans. Up next, she’ll star alongside John Malkovich and Tyrese Gibson in director Jon Keeyes’ new action thriller Red 48 for Yale Productions. Most recently, Taylor starred in Netflix’s Dolly Parton anthology series Heartstrings and recurred on ABC’s The Good Doctor. Taylor is repped by Paradigm Talent Agency and Brilliant Talent Management.
