Odette Annable will be doing more walk(er)ing in the future…
After recurring in Season 1 of Walker, the 35-year-old Colombian & Cuban American actress has been upped to series regular for the upcoming second season of the breakout hit CW drama series.
The reboot of the popular CBS drama centers on Cordell Walker (Jared Padalecki), a widower and father of two with his own moral code who returns home to Austin after being undercover for two years, only to discover there’s harder work to be done at home.
Annable, who appears in six of 11 Season 1 episodes, plays Geraldine “Geri” Broussard, an old friend of Cordell Walker (Padalecki) and his late wife Emily (Genevieve Padalecki) who runs a bar and has emerged as a romantic interest for Cordell.
It’s familiar territory for Annable, who has been a lead/series regular on a slew of series, including the CW’s Supergirl, CBS All Access’ Tell Me a Story, CBS’ Pure Genius and Fox’s House and Breaking In.
