EXCLUSIVE: The Originals‘ alum Steven Krueger is returning to the CW for a recurring role on the upcoming third season of Roswell, New Mexico. The role also reunites Krueger with Roswell, New Mexico EP Chris Hollier, who worked on The Originals. The reimagined Roswell, like the original, is based on the Roswell High book series by Melinda Metz. It hails from Amblin TV, Bender Brown Prods and Warner Bros. TV. Krueger will play Heath, Liz’s ambitious colleague at a high-tech laboratory in Los Angeles. Despite his casual irreverence, which Liz finds infuriating, Heath cares deeply for his work and like Liz, is willing to do whatever it takes to make the world a better place. Even though Heath and Liz don’t always see eye to eye, his different approach ultimately pushes her to break her old patterns and discover new ways of looking at the world. Krueger is known for his role as Josh Rosza on all five seasons of The Originals. He most recently landed the male lead in Showtime’s pilot Yellowjackets. Krueger is repped by A3 Artists Agency and Allen Edelman Management.
