Daytime alum Annie Wersching (ex-Amelia, GENERAL HOSPITAL) has certainly been keeping busy since leaving the soap! As she waits for news of the renewal of one of her television shows, a new one she’s also appearing in has just been ordered to series!
Wersching is playing Leslie Dean in MARVEL’S RUNAWAYS, which has just been picked up by Hulu for a full season according to Deadline. Based on the comic book series, the show tells the story of six diverse teenagers with super powers who must unite against a common enemy — Their parents! In the comic, Leslie and her husband, Frank, are the parents of Karolina, and also alien invaders! “Yeah, baby,” the actress posted to Instagram. “Momma’s goin’ to work!”
Meanwhile, Wersching is still waiting for news regarding NBC’s TIMELESS, which ended its first season back in February of 2017, and still has not yet been renewed by the network. On the time-traveling adventure series, Wersching played the recurring role of Emma Whitmore, who was more than she initially appeared to be.
Wersching has become a very familiar face in primetime after leaving GH, landing starring roles on 24, EXTANT, THE VAMPIRE DIARIES, and BOSCH in addition to her numerous guest appearances in others shows like CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION, HAWAII FIVE-0, DALLAS, and CASTLE.
We’re looking forward to seeing Wersching as a devious alien parent in MARVEL’S RUNAWAYS when it premieres on Hulu, and we’ll be sure to let you know when a premiere date is announced!
