We’re learning today of another actress joining J.J. Abrham’s Star Trek sequel which is due out next year: Nazneen Contractor, who played Kayla Hassan in 24.
Entertainment Weekly reports:
EW has learned that Nazneen Contractor (24) has been cast in the upcoming sequel to J.J. Abrams’ 2009 Star Trek reboot. The actress has been tapped to play the wife of Noel Clarke’s character in the film. (Variety reported earlier this week that the Doctor Who star has signed on as “a family man with a wife and young daughter.”)
It doesn’t look like she has too big a role, unless this family is somehow central to the story’s plot. We had reported on Noel Clarke’s casting earlier this week.
