Meet Dig 301
Actress Dina Shihabi has joined the second season of Altered Carbon in the role of Dig 301.

The character has been out of work for some time, but she finds a new purpose when she agrees to help Poe.
Explaining more about Dig 301’s role, the show’s executive producer Alison Schapker told IGN: “Dig is an out of work AI to an ‘archaeolog’ — that’s what we call the archaeologists on the planet who assisted people who dug into these Elder artifacts because there was a civilization there before humans colonized this planet.”
