Sci-fi fan fav Linda Hamilton will be taking on a recurring role in season two of Defiance starring Grant Bowler, Julie Benz, Stephanie Leonidas, Tony Curran, Jaime Murray, Graham Greene, and Jesse Rath. According to the official casting announcement, Hamilton will play Pilar, Rafe McCawley’s (Graham Greene) wife and the mother of three children.
 
The official character description: “Separated from her family for a number of years, Pilar has now returned home. Pilar suffered from serious mental illness and in the aftermath of the Votan arrival and subsequent war, did not have access to her medication. With her mental state unchecked, Pilar snapped and tried to murder her children. Fearing for the family’s safety, Rafe sent her to an institution and told their children she had died. Now Pilar is back with both a steely resolve and a warm, maternal love for her family. But the motives for her return are unclear, and soon Rafe and others in town begin to question where she’s actually been these past years.”
 
Other new cast members this season include James Murray playing the mayor of Defiance, William Atherton as an Earth Republic official, and Anna Hopkins as an Earth Republic soldier.
