MTV's 'Finding Carter' Adds Quartet to Cast (Exclusive)
MTV's upcoming Finding Carter drama has added four to its cast.
The series, which stars Skins' Kathryn Prescott, has enlisted Jesse Henderson, Jesse Carere, Caleb Ruminer and Vanessa Morgan as recurring guest-stars, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
The 12-episode drama centers on a teenager (Prescott) who learns that her mother abducted her as a child. Bones' Emily Silver penned the script based on an original idea and Terri Minsky exec produces. Prescott stars as Carter; Alexis Denisof, Cynthia Watros, Anna Jacoby-Heron and Zac Pullam co-star, with Meredith Baxter and Robert Pine also part of the recurring cast, playing Carter's grandparents.
Henderson (Restless, The Gray Area) will play Gabe, a teenager who falls for wild-child Carter despite her sister and his longtime friend Taylor's harboring feelings for him. He's repped by Luber Roklin and Greene & Associates.
Carere (NCIS, MTV's Skins) is set as Ofe, a friend of Carter's who happens to be the school bookie and runs an illegal gambling operation. He's repped by APA and Canada's The Arc.
Ruminer (Castle) will portray Crash, the ultimate bad boy who has spent time at juvenile detention and charms Carter. He's with Savage Agency and Luber Roklin.
Morgan is cast as Bird, a rich Boho chic girl who appears to have it all but is empty on the inside. The actress is best known for her role in My Babysitter’s a Vampire and played a young Halle Berry in Frankie & Alice.
Her TV credits also include Degrassi: The Next Generation. She's repped by UTA and Vincent Cirrincione Associates.
