GRACEPOINT: Madalyn Horcher Joins As Chloe Lasseter

The latest cast announcement for Gracepoint, the Fox TV remake of Broadchurch, is Madalyn Horcher. Madalyn will play Chloe Lasseter, the smart and sassy daughter of Mark (Michael Peña) and Beth (Virginia Kull), who is hit hard by her brother Danny’s death. Chloe is in a relationship with Dean Iverson, played by Kendrick Sampson, whose casting was announced last week.

Madalyn has previously been seen in House M.D., CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and Rogue. She will shortly be seen in comedy drama Riding 79.

Gracepoint will be a ten-episode event series adapted from the UK series Broadchurch. Chris Chibnall, the creator of Broadchurch, will executive produce the series and has written the first epsiode, while James Strong will direct multiple episodes. David Tennant, star of the original, will play lead investigator Emmett Carver, an American detective closely based on his character of DI Alec Hardy in Broadchurch. Other cast include Anna Gunn as Ellie Miller, Kevin Zegers as Owen Burke, Nick Nolte as Jack Reinhold and Jacki Weaver as Susan Wright. 

As with the original UK drama, Gracepoint follows events in a tiny coastal community when the body of a local boy is discovered on the beach. 

Principal photography begins on the series on Tuesday 28th January on Vancouver Island, BC and is expected to continue into May. The show will air as part of Fox's 2014-15 season.
