Franka Potente Joins ‘Dark Matter’ Season 2 As Recurring
And the Dark Matter season 2 casting rollout continues with the announcement that Franka Potente (The Bridge, Copper, Run Lola Run, The Bourne Identity) will be joining the show in the role of Chief Inspector Shaddick of the Galactic Authority’s Serious Crimes Division. “She is cool, calculated and determined to prove the crew of the Raza were involved in the destruction of Iriden 3.”
Iriden 3… Iriden 3… Ring a bell? Mikkei Combine research facility? White hole technology? An “accident” that claimed some 15 000 lives? Yeah, you remember.
This announcement follows to other big casting announcements for the show’s second season…
Melanie Liburd’s casting as the mysterious Nyx Harper:
And Shaun Sipos’s casting as the former surgeon with a dark past Devon Taltherd:
A few more big casting announcements to come!

Well, “involved” doesn’t necessarily mean “caused”! I’m sure our intrepid crew will overcome these trumped up charges. Or at least escape in some kind of perilous adventure.
Getting more excited!!!
The first time we are introduced to Franka character you should have the composer put in just the slightest hint of “Extreme Ways.”
I ditto @gforce! They were just the pawns in a much bigger game!
I also agree with @Wayne, love Moby’s Extreme Ways!
Excited to learn Franka was cast!
Yes, I remember Franka from the Bourne series. Nice catch there.
two thumps (only if i had more) up! very worth the time watching.
Ot the american version of The Bridge!
I was already looking forward to season two — Dark Matter is excellent — adding Franke Potenta to the mix is the icing.

Ah! The things serendipity might be inclined to gift ya when stumbling about searching for something in the dark.

via the PBS educators site early this morning.
Just a little side dish to add to your annual Dark Matter season premiere feasts, eh!. -> Its made with bacon & bourbon.
My introduction to Franka was this great movie https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FZoPe7Iz-DM trailer in German but quite self-explaining :-). English title seems to be After five in the forest primeval, don’t know if it’s available with English subtitles.
Another fab trailer…TEASE cause we have to wait until July! aarrrrrggghhhh.
Hope the tease clip with Zoie is for real….AWESOMEness!!
Yes, she can handle herself.
