Alana de la Garza is going beyond borders…
The 39-year-old half-Mexican American actress has booked a series regular role opposite Gary Sinise on CBS’ Criminal Minds planted offshoot Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders.
Like Criminal Minds, which centers on the FBI’s Analysis Unit, Beyond Borders focuses on a division of the FBI. It follows agents helping American citizens who find themselves in trouble abroad.
de la Garza, who recently landed a recurring role on CBS’ Scorpion, will play Clara, a smart, well-traveled cultural anthropologist on the International Response Team.
de la Garza played the female lead on ABC’s Forever. Her previous television credits include Law & Order, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and Law & Order: Los Angeles, as well as the short-lived series Do No Harm.
Like the original series, Beyond Borders hails from ABC Studios, CBS Television Studios and the Mark Gordon Co.
