In addition to her most recent series regular role on the ABC Marvel drama, her credits include Nikita, How I Met Your Mother, Desperate Housewives, Grandfathered and both Kick Ass films. She is repped by ICM Partners, Management 360 and Morris Yorn.
Cappuccino will portray the series regular role of Hester Bradley, Juno’s sister, who is searching for a purpose and determined not to miss out on the fun. Best known for playing young Jessica Jones in the Netflix series, her other credits include Deception. She is repped by Paradigm and Anonymous Content.
The Magicians scribe Noga Landau penned the pilot for The Haunted and will co-exec produce the UCP project. Author James Frey and Todd Cohen of Full Fathom Five will exec produce.
