Ana de la Reguera is heading to the Wild West as she continues to forge a successful acting career in the United States.
The 34-year-old Mexican starlet has signed on to appear in the pilot for “Gateway,” TNT’s new post-Civil War era Western set in Colorado.
The project, being written by “Band of Brothers” scribe Bruce McKenne, centers around three brothers who take over justice in their town after their sheriff father is murdered.
The Veracruz, Mexico-born de la Reguera will play Lola Johnson, the co-owner of the town’s saloon. Her character is described as a beautiful, practical, energetic and vivacious woman who’s life gets turned upside down when she gets caught up in a love triangle between two of the brothers, played by actors Cam Gigandet y Keir O’Donnell.
Recently, the former telenovela star has appeared in the second season of HBO’s “Eastbound & Down,” as well as the summer blockbuster “Cowboys & Aliens.” She’s also served as a spokesperson for Cover Girl cosmetics.
