Lexa Doig (“Jason X”) has joined the cast of “Chucky”, SyFy’s highly-anticipated spin-off of the “Child’s Play” series.
Doig, whose other credits include “Arrow” and “Stargate : SG1”, plays the character ‘Bree Webber’ on the show.
Married to Logan (played by Devon Sawa), she is the aunt of Jake Webber (Zackary Arthur), one of the teenage leads in the 10-episode series. According to the official character description, Bree is held to an unrealistic standard — by her husband and herself, which leads her to keep a dark secret from her family.
The series, from Don Mancini and Nick Antosca, will also star Brad Dourif, Fiona Dourif and Jennifer Tilly.
“It’s a return to the straightforward horror scariness of the first couple of movies involving a whole new group of kids,” Mancini told SYFY WIRE last year. “One thing I think I can probably safely say is that it’s a look at what it means to be a kid today in the 21st century as distinct from what it was like to be a kid in the 1980s when we first showed up on the scene. That’s one thing I think people can look forward to and thinking about, ‘How does Chucky operate in a world where kids spend so much of their time on social media?’, for example … I think the prospect of seeing Chucky sharpen his skills and add to his toolbox, some of the technical goodies that we have at our disposal now, that’s something I think people will find pretty interesting.”
