Limetown

As we expected, 2019 continues to deliver more brilliant television.

All hail Jessica Biel!

The 37-year-old actress has starred in many interesting projects over the years. She made an impression playing Lara in Roger Avary's criminally underrated The Rules of Attraction in 2002, and later appeared in the likes of the 2003 remake of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (she played Erin), Blade: Trinity (Abigail Whistler), Stealth (Lt. Kara Wade), The Illusionist (Sophie), Next (Liz Cooper), Total Recall (Melina) and Hitchcock (Vera Miles). 

There are clear film highlights, but in recent years, audiences have been particularly impressed with her TV work; she was incredible as Cora Tannetti in The Sinner

Now, she's continuing to work wonders in television in a new project called Limetown...
