‘Leverage’ Revival Adds Aleyse Shannon to the Cast


With the Leverage revival underway and filming for IMDb TV, the show is starting to round out the cast with brand new characters. Joining Gina Bellman (Sophie Devereaux), Christian Kane (Eliot Spencer), Beth Riesgraf (Parker), and Aldis Hodge (Alec Hardison) will be Aleyse Shannon. It was previously announced that Noah Wyle has also joined the cast.

Shannon, previously seen as Jada Shields on Charmed, will play Hardison’s sister Breanna Casey, who has some hacking skills of her own. We got a little hint of Hardison’s younger years in the original run of the series, where he grew up in the foster system and lived with Nana. Now, we will get more of that past in the form of Breanna!

Leverage, a show where sometimes the bad guys make the best good guys, will continue to take down the worst of the worst with their unique skills in grifting, hacking, hitting, and all-around thievery. You can watch the original five seasons on IMDb TV for free.

When Melanie isn’t writing for Nerds and Beyond, she’s doing her best to make professional fangirl a thing. She loves writing fan fiction, drawing fan art, reading comics and binge-watching like it’s a professional sport. Her list of fandoms just keep growing, and will always cite Supernatural and Psych as her first forays into fangirldom. Though Nancy Drew will always be her first real fandom. Melanie works hard at making her art a career and has dreams of becoming a published author someday. You can find her on Twitter @FangirlLanie.
