Ana de la Reguera has landed a rollercoaster role… of sorts!
The 35-year-old Mexican actress has been cast in ABC’s drama pilot Big Thunder, which is based on the popular rollercoaster at Disneyland.
Directed by Rob Bowman and written by Jason Fuchs, the project centers on a brilliant, late 19th century New York doctor. He and his family are given a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to relocate to a frontier mining town run by a powerful, but mysterious tycoon. But the family quickly realizes that not everything in Big Thunder is as it appears.
de la Reguera will portray Selena Morales, a strong, independent, no nonsense woman who lives by her own moral code that’s been shaped by the very hard life she’s lived.
de la Reguera, whose film credits include Nacho Libre and Cowboys & Aliens, most recently appeared on television in Royal Pains and Eastbound & Down.
She’ll next appear in Lionsgate’s Ghosts, which was previously called Jessabelle.
