Jessica Camacho has taken on a new role…
The 34-year-old Latina actress has signed on as a series regular for the second season of NBC’s drama series Taken.
Camacho will play Santana, a scary-smart, rule-breaking former Army captain who possesses an acerbic wit and calculated bravado, according to TVLine, which first reported the casting.
Due to a change in creative direction, Camacho joins a revamped Season 2 that will have a very different look. Only series regulars Clive Standen (Bryan Mills), and Jennifer Beals (Christina Hart) will return for the second season.
Camacho’s credits include roles on The Flash, Frequency, Sleepy Hollow and Minority Report.
Jose Pablo Cantillo has taken an action-packed new role…

Written and executive produced by Alex Cary, who serves as showrunner, Taken is a modern-day prequel to the film franchise that depicts how Bryan Mills (Clive Standen) developed and sharpened his particular set of skills.
Cantillo will play Bernie, a member of Bryan’s OPCON (Operational Control) team, an elite team of operatives who take care of America’s national security emergencies on the ground. Bernie is the one in the team that does not take anything too seriously until the situation requires it.
Cantillo is best known for his roles as Caesar Martinez on The Walking Dead and Hector Salazar on Sons of Anarchy. He also appeared in feature Chappie.
