Entertainment Weekly reports that London-born Zuleikha Robinson will play the pivotal role of Ilana on the fifth season of ABC’s “Lost.”
Robinson played Nikolaj Coster-Waldau’s partner in crime on Fox’s short-lived “New Amsterdam.” Before that she appeared as Gaia on HBO’s “Rome” and the “X-Files” spin-off “The Lone Gunmen.”
Ilana is described as a European female who possesses great intelligence but who’s also dangerous. She’s alluring and apparently used to getting her own way.
EW says Robinson’s deal calls for her to start off as a recurring player with an option to become a series regular in season 6.
