Timeless actress Sakina Jaffrey is officially heading over to Starz’s American Gods!
According to Deadline, Sakina Jaffrey has officially been cast in a recurring role on Starz’s American Gods.
Jaffrey, who some might recognize from her work on NBC’s Timeless where she plays Agent Denise Christopher, will be featured in season 2 of the book-to-television adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s 2001 award-winning novel.
The actress will be playing Mama-Ji on the series, a Hindu goddess of war who now works as a waitress at Motel America. She’s well known for being a witty free spirit and is described as being “a match for any mighty god or man.”
In addition to announcing Jaffrey’s casting in the series, Starz also revealed that they’re currently on the hunt for an actress to play the role of Sam Blackcrow.
Per the official casting announcement, the casting team is looking for a female actress who is First Nation/Native American and between the ages of 18 to mid-20s.
The character of Sam Blackcrow is described as “confident, engaging, headstrong, and has a free spirit personality.”
