Jennifer Ferrin, who’s currently pursuing Kevin Bacon in THE FOLLOWING, is joining the third season of HELL ON WHEELS as a series regular, TVLine is reporting.
Ferrin will play Louise Ellison, a smart, witty and flirtatious journalist hired by the New York Sun to cover the “story of the century” — the building of the Transcontinental Railroad. Louise imbues her work with an element of human emotion as well as thorough, blunt, truthful fact-finding. She is strong and independent and demands to be treated with the same respect that any man in her position would be given.
Ferrin spent three years playing Jennifer Munson on AS THE WORLD TURNS, earning the actress two Daytime Emmy nominations. Her ATWT mother was played by Colleen Zenk, who is also starring in a Western, the hit indie web series THURSTON.
