TVLine.com – Who’s getting younger on Once Upon a Time? Who is Abby’s Scandal-ous new friend? New Teen Wolf twosome ahead? Should Five-0 fans fret? Read on for answers to those questions plus teases from other shows.
Anything… I’ll take anything you’ve got on Graceland…. Please…. –Jess
For Season 2, the USA Network drama is casting the recurring roles of Kelly, an alcoholic who meets Briggs at AA (but has no idea of his link to her own tragic past), and Vera Walker, Mike’s new FBI supervisor… and perhaps more. You’ll also meet Zagurski, the Fed now laying claim to Mike’s Graceland room – unless, that is, Mike can convince his new boss to let him return to the house and hunt down a very big fish.
Thanks so much to my good friend Ang, we have the screencaps of Serinda from this past weeks show of “The Tomorrow People”. She looked amazing in it so I hope you all caught the episode. If not, check out the caps in the gallery.
Leading a rag-tag gang of advanced species humans has turned out to be a tough job for Peyton List’s Cara on “The Tomorrow People.”
There have been challenges from secret government agency Ultra, and from new breakouts, but in this Wednesday’s episode, it seems she may have to contend with a situation that is a truly unique combination of the two, when “Graceland’s” Serinda Swan guest stars.
To hear Peyton tell it, Serinda’s incoming character not only has connections to Ultra’s top brass, but she has some powers worthy of “TTP” golden boy Stephen.
During a chat with AccessHollywood.com, Peyton addressed the new challenges coming to our subway-dwelling super-humans and hinted that Cara’s leadership is about to alter her romantic relationship with on-again/off-again boyfriend John (Luke Mitchell).
AccessHollywood.com: Serinda Swan is coming on as the ‘rogue breakout’ – at least that is how she’s described in the previews. Are her powers going crazy?
Peyton List: Well, the interesting thing about this week’s upcoming episode is there is something different about her. In the past we’ve seen a lot of breakouts where they’re using their powers for self-serving purposes or maybe they’re using them to teleport into places they’re not supposed to be teleporting. Sometimes we see breakouts who don’t have control of their powers. We see something completely different with this breakout and what’s interesting is that we’re going to be exploring yet another shift in what you’re capable of doing, what your powers can be used for. She is sort of somebody that we never saw coming, but it makes for a great episode.
It looks like Hollywood is finally starting to realize what many of the fans of Serinda Swan have known since 2011 and that is she is an actress who has the talent and looks of a leading lady and thus should be a featured actress. In 2014 she will be seen in starring roles in the movies “Jinn” and “The Veil” and also in a guest appearance in the television series “The Tomorrow People”. She is also one of the actors in the drama movie “Sister”.
Serinda Swan has been turning heads with both her looks and her ability to capture the screen since she was part of the cast of the 2011 hit A&E television show “Breakout Kings”. While she has been seen in the television series “Graceland” over the course of 2013 it was her role as past convict “Erica Reed” which made her a favourite of American fans and the various men’s magazines and blogs throughout the Internet. As many who have watched on screen have noted it is not just her looks that have made her such a favourite but more her personality that seems to shine through in her acting.
It is no surprise to her fans that movie producers and directors have selected her to be the leading lady in their films but now the question is what direction will she take her career following the completion of the filming of “The Veil”, her last scheduled project of 2014? Will she pursue more dramatic roles or will she take her movie career in another direction and pursue comedies with the goal of proving to Hollywood that she can play any type of role.
Whatever the direction that Serinda Swan takes with her career the one thing she must not do is let go of Hollywood now that she has the attention and admiration of some its directors and producers. Serinda Swan may have taken her time in becoming a leading lady in Hollywood but her talent is such that her fans and entertainment observers should find themselves a nice seat and get some popcorn because it is very likely that she will be a regular face on Hollywood screens for many years.

We recently spoke with actress Serinda Swan (Tron:Legacy, Graceland) about her charity practices, thoughts on year-end giving, and whether she trusts celebrity endorsements of organizations.
We met Serinda a few years back when we coordinated her trip to visit Heifer and Somaly Mam Foundation’s work in Cambodia. Serinda went on to create a skydiving crowd funded campaign, 18 for 18, to benefit Somaly Mam’s fight to end human trafficking. 18 for 18 has raised over $250,000 in just over 2 years with over 20 million online impressions. You can view a video of the campaign below.
CEA: We just entered into a new year. Do you make a practice of year end giving? The idea of giving before the tax year is up?
I do make sure to incorporate giving back into my holiday shopping, whether it is a donation in someone’s name or an amazing product that has a tangible give-back, but I try to make my giving more of a year-round thing than concentrated just at the end. Still, it is a great way for people to start getting into the philanthropic world because it is helping all around. It’s helping you with your taxes and it’s helping the people that need it.
CEA: How do you tend to find the causes to which you connect?
If I don’t know about an issue or a cause I’ll immerse myself and read up on it until I feel that I know what’s going on. I’m a bit of an autodidact like that. It’s really about just staying aware of what’s happening in the world. I love RYOT News because of that. It’s probably one of my favorite places to get my news because you get the stories, but then you also get how you can help. Nowadays I feel that the news almost creates helplessness because it is this barrage of negativity. You may see an argument between two professionals or between two experts on what’s right and what’s wrong, but it’s never really how to help or a way you can get involved with the situation.
So it’s good if you can find organizations like RYOT or you can find things online that have a direct link on how you can help the cause that you’re watching. I think socially we should start moving towards that. Even the smallest things will help. I know with 18 for 18 [Serinda’s annual crowdsourcing fundraiser to benefit Somaly Mam Foundation] we have $2, $4, $5 donations coming in, which may seem small but on such a large scale that’s becoming hundreds of thousands of dollars. And again, we always say a donation is not just monetary. It’s a tweet, it’s a re-tweet, it’s a text, it’s a Facebook post, it’s a conversation at your next dinner with friends. Some of the most important people in my life are people I consider to be information donors. I sit down for a coffee with them and they just donate this wealth of knowledge. It’s invaluable.
I have added some brand new scans of Serinda from the Zee Lifestyle Magazine from October 2013 to the gallery. And thanks so much to the awesome Kikky for the amazing photoshoot from the magazine.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, GRACELAND’s Serinda Swan is set to guest star on The CW’s freshman drama THE TOMORROW PEOPLE.
Swan will take on the role of The Founder’s “sexy and mysterious” daughter, Cassandra ‘Cassie’ Smythe, “a bank-robbing paranormal who is the most powerful breakout on the planet. She becomes the object of Stephen’s (Robbie Amell) fascination when he learns they share a psychic connection similar to the bond he experienced with Cara (Peyton List).But when Stephen discovers Cassie’s connection to The Founder, he realizes her agenda may be more complicated than he first believed. She plays a role in Stephen’s discovery of the Founder’s secret plan and may ultimately help to save the Tomorrow People — or doom humankind.” Swan’s appearance is set for the thirteenth episode.
The Tomorrow People airs Wednesdays, 9/8c on The CW.
They are the next evolutionary leap of mankind, a generation of humans born with paranormal abilities – the Tomorrow People. Stephen Jameson stands at the crossroads between the world we know and the shifting world of the future. Up until a year ago, Stephen was a “normal” teenager – until he began hearing voices and teleporting in his sleep, never knowing where he might wake up.
Now, Stephen’s issues have gone far beyond the usual teenage angst, and he is beginning to question his sanity. In desperation, Stephen decides to listen to one of the voices in his head, and it leads him to his first encounter with the Tomorrow People – John, Cara and Russell – a genetically advanced race with the abilities of telekinesis, teleportation and telepathic communication. The Tomorrow People are being Hunted down by a paramilitary group of scientists known as Ultra. Led by Dr. Jedikiah Price, Ultra sees the Tomorrow People as a very real existential threat from a rival species, and the outcast group has been forced to hide out in an abandoned subway station just beneath the surface of the human world.
Trading in secrets, Jedikiah offers Stephen the chance for a normal life with his family and best friend, Astrid, if he will help in the struggle to isolate and eradicate the Tomorrow People. On the other hand, Cara, John and Russell offer Stephen a different type of family and a home where he truly belongs. Unwilling to turn his back on humanity or the world of the Tomorrow People, Stephen sets out on his own path – a journey that could take him into the shadowy past to uncover the truth about his father’s mysterious disappearance, or into an unknown future with THE TOMORROW PEOPLE. The series stars Robbie Amell (“Revenge”) as Stephen, Luke Mitchell (“H20: Just Add Water”) as John, Peyton List (“Mad Men”) as Cara, Aaron Yoo (“Disturbia,” “Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist”) as Russell, Mark Pellegrino (“Lost,” “Supernatural”) as Dr. Jedikiah Price, and Madeleine Mantock (upcoming “All You Need is Kill”) as Astrid.
