Orphan Black Exclusive: Nashville, Nikita Actors Among Season 2′s New Additions

Oct 11 2013, 11:42am CDT | by TV Line

Orphan Black is inducting three new members into The Clone Club in Season 2, including Connie Britton’s on-again/off-again Nashville squeeze and a former Nikita Big Bad.

Michiel Huisman , who plays Rayna’s producer/lover Liam on Nashville (and who also assumes the role of Daario Naharis in Season 4 of Game of Thrones), joins the BBC America hit in the recurring role of Cal Morrison, a rugged, resourceful outdoorsman with surprising emotional depth and a sixth sense about people and situations. Cal will need all his wits and humanity as he crosses paths with the clones. His journey will be fraught with surprise, danger, and revelations he could never see coming.

Additionally, Peter Outerbridgebest known to TV audiences as Nikita‘s evil (and deceased) Ari — will recur as Henrik “Hank” Johanssen, a mercurial modern-day cowboy.  Johanssen leads a flock of followers that have broken away from the old world “Prolethean” brotherhood.  Under his messianic vision, the age old divide between science and religion has merged, forming a new and formidable threat.

Lastly, up-and-comer Ari Millen (Rookie Blue, Nikita) will appear in multiple episodes as Mark, a cunning predator with a dark edge. Mark is utterly devoted to Johanssen, who took him in and built him into a true believer in the cause. Now, guided by twisted morality and desperate faith, he’s a relentless and dogged pursuer of the clones.

Season 2 of Orphan Black is currently in production and is slated to premiere in April 2014.
