Oscar and Golden Globe winner Mira Sorvino is set for a multiple-episode guest-starring arc in the fourth season of TNT's epic drama "Falling Skies."
Sorvino, whose credits include "Mighty Aphrodite," the hit comedy "Romy and Michele's High School Reunion" and Guillermo del Toro's sci-fi thriller "Mimic," will play Sara, a woman far removed from her former life as a graphic designer. She is now dogged by death at every turn, yet she has never felt more alive, free or fearless. A chance encounter with guerrilla fighter John Pope (Colin Cunningham) leads her to join the resistance and develop a strong personal bond with the outlaw-turned-warrior.
"Falling Skies" is currently in production on its fourth season, which is slated to launch on TNT in summer 2014. Produced for TNT by DreamWorks Television and executive producer Steven Spielberg, the series tells the story about life and survival in the wake of a catastrophic alien invasion. "Falling Skies" stars Noah Wyle as a college history professor who has become an unlikely resistance leader. The series also stars Moon Bloodgood, Will Patton, Drew Roy, Connor Jessup, Maxim Knight, Seychelle Gabriel, Mpho Koaho, Colin Cunningham and Sarah Carter.
