Mimi Rogers Joins Starz’s ‘Ash vs Evil Dead’

0

The Ash vs Evil Dead cast has gotten a little bigger with the addition of veteran actress Mimi Rogers.

When the series premieres, we’ll catch up with Ash (Bruce Campbell), who has spent the last 30 years avoiding responsibility, maturity and the terrors of the Evil Dead. When a Deadite plague threatens to destroy all of mankind, Ash is finally forced to face his demons –personal and literal. Destiny, it turns out, has no plans to release the unlikely hero from its grips.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Rogers has joined the cast as Suzy Maxwell, “a woman who is reunited with her family and several uninvited guests after a freak accident. Suzy is the mother of Kelly (series regular Dana DeLorenzo), a moody wild child trying to outrun her past.”

The 10-episode first season of the series will be executive produced by original Evil Dead series creator Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert and Bruce Campbell.

In addition to Campbell and Rogers, the series cast includes: Lucy Lawless as Ruby, a mysterious figure who believes Ash is the cause of the Evil outbreaks; Jill Marie Jones as Amanda Fisher, a disgraced Michigan State Trooper set to find our anti-hero Ash and prove his responsibility in the grisly murder of her partner; Ray Santiago as Pablo Simon Bolivar, an idealistic immigrant who becomes Ash’s loyal sidekick and Dana DeLorenzo as Kelly Maxwell, a moody wild child trying to outrun her past.

The series began filming in New Zealand in April.
