Actress Lela Loren is set to play the role of Danica Harlan in the eight episode Season Two of Altered Carbon (based on the cyberpunk novel by Richard K. Morgan).
In fact, Loren already has completed production on her Altered Carbon regular role. Set 300 years in the future, society has been transformed by new technology: consciousness can be digitised; human bodies are interchangeable; death is no longer permanent.
Loren’s character, Danica Harlan, is the charming and ambitious governor of planet Harlan’s World. She has the support of the people, but keeps an uneasy grip on the political players who surround her.
Additional cast who’ll feature include Anthony Mackie as Takeshi Kovacs; Renée Elise Goldsberry as Quellcrist Falconer (returns); Chris Conner as Poe (returns); Dina Shihabi as Dig 301; Simone Missick as Trepp; Torben Liebrecht as Colonel Carrera; James Saito as Tanaseda Hideki
Alison Schapker, Laeta Kalogridis and James Middleton serve as executive producers for the series, alongside David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Marcy Ross for Skydance Television for Netflix
We’ll have to wait until 2020 to watch it on Netflix, however.
