TV Line is reporting that Australian actress Georgina Haig has been cast in the "potentially recurring role of Etta, a new Fringe agent who turns up in this season’s 19th episode", which airs April 20th.
Etta will be the partner of the new male agent to be played by LOST‘s Henry Ian Cusick.
According to TV Line:
It remains unclear if Haig and Cusick’s alter egos will be working “over here” or “over there.” (The original breakdowns described their characters as “Alternate Universe Agents,” but Cusick’s G-man was later described as an agent of the FBI, an organization that doesn’t exist “over there.” Confused? Join the club!) Making things more complicated, the buzz is that Haig’s role has more long-term potential than the one filled by Cusick(who is currently attached to ABC’s midseason drama Scandal).Will these new characters be accepted, like Seth Gabel's Lincoln Lee, or will they be outcasts like Amy Jessup (or in LOST terms... Nikki and Paulo)?
