AS THE WORLD TURNS Alum Annie Parisse Joins THE FOLLOWING As Series Regular

Annie Parisse (ex-Julia, AS THE WORLD TURNS) has joined the cast of THE FOLLOWING as a series regular in the highly anticipated new thriller from creator/executive producer Kevin Williamson (THE VAMPIRE DIARIES; DAWSON'S CREEK), premiering midseason on FOX.

The chilling new series focuses on former FBI agent RYAN HARDY (Emmy Award-nominated actor Kevin Bacon, X-Men: First Class; Frost/Nixon), who is brought in as a consultant when notorious serial killer JOE CARROLL (James Purefoy, ROME) escapes from death row and embarks on a new killing spree.

Hardy discovers that, while in prison, Carroll was covertly communicating with a network of killers in the outside world and it quickly becomes obvious that he has more planned than just his escape.

Hardy works closely with an FBI team, including FBI Specialist Debra Parker PARKER (Parisse), who is brought in to lead the investigation of Carroll and his followers.

Parisse is best known to soap fans for her run as heroine turned villain Julia Lindsey Snyder in AS THE WORLD TURNS. She also starred on Broadway in “Prelude to a Kiss.” Her feature film credits include Definitely, Maybe, Prime, Blackbird, Monster-in-Law, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days and One for the Money, opposite Katherine Heigl. Her other television credits include RUBICON, LAW & ORDER, PERSON OF INTEREST and THE PACIFIC.
