The 32-year-old Cuban actress has landed a role in ABC’s Quantico, the network’s new drama series.
The ABC Studios-produced Quantico revolves around a diverse group of recruits at the FBI Quantico Base, one of whom is suspected of masterminding the biggest attack on New York City since 9/11.
In the multi-episode arc, Acosta will portray recruit Nathalie Vazquez, a former cop from Laredo, Texas. Driven, kick-ass, and fiercely competitive, she’s almost mercenary in her focus, more interested in always coming out on top than being a team player.
