Lifetime's 'Seeds of Yesterday' Adds 'Salem' Actress (Exclusive)
Lifetime's fourth Flowers in the Attic movie has found another Dollanganger.
Salem actress Sammi Hanratty has booked a lead role in Seeds of Yesterday, the final installment based on the V.C. Andrews novel, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
The Dollangager saga will end with Seeds of Yesterday, which will follow the family as their deeply troubled relationships, dark secrets and tragedy come to a head in a way that will haunt the family and its progeny forever.
Hanratty will play Cindy Sheffield, the rebellious adopted daughter of Chris (Jason Lewis) and Cathy Dollanganger (Rachael Carpani). A shameless flirt, she knows all about her family history and feels a strong impulse to be sexually active with men she barely knows. A Lolita-type who enjoys twirling older men around her finger, she moves to Foxworth Hall with her family. She is aware that her own brother Bart (James Maslow) is obsessed with her and they have a passionate love-hate relationship.
Seeds of Yesterday is produced by A+E Studios. Dan Angel, Jane Startz and Jocelyn Freid will executive produce, with Harvey Kahn and Rick Arredondo producing. Shawn Ku will direct from a screenplay written by Darren Stein.
Hanratty is repped by Paradigm and Zero Gravity Management. She recently wrapped production on Bad Kids Go 2 Hell and recurs on WGN America's Salem.
Seeds of Yesterday will premiere on Lifetime in 2015, following If There Be Thorns.
