Olivia Sandoval is North Dakota bound…
The Latina actress has landed a key recurring role on the upcoming third season of FX’s series Fargo.
The new installment is set in 2010 and features Ewan McGregor (in dual roles), Carrie Coon, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and David Thewlis.
In Season 3, Emmit Stussy (McGregor), the Parking Lot King of Minnesota, sees himself as an American success story, whereas his slightly younger brother Ray (also McGregor) is more of a cautionary tale. Forever living in his brother’s shadow, Ray is a balding and pot-bellied parole officer with a huge chip on his shoulder about the hand he’s been dealt – and he blames his brother. Their sibling rivalry follows a twisted path that begins with petty theft but soon leads to murder, mobsters and cutthroat competitive bridge.
Sandoval will play St. Cloud police officer Winnie Lopez in a season-long arc. Blessed with the gift of gab, Winnie is not shy about sharing her feelings on everything from family planning to being a female on the force.
Sandoval, the daughter of actor Miguel Sandoval, recurred on Medium and guest-starred most recently on The Real O’Neals.
