On the heels of what’s already shaping up to be a hot Season 3 in Purgatory, The TV Junkies have some more exclusive Wynonna Earp casting news to share. We already know that Reign‘s Megan Follows has been cast in the pivotal role of Mama Earp and that Dark Matter/Lost Girl alum Zoie Palmer will be guest starring as a woman named Jolene. We can now announce that Chantel Riley has been brought on board to play the recurring role of Kate.

Kate is described as bold and sophisticated, sensual and deadly. She has been on an intense manhunt for as long as she can remember and recently turned up in Purgatory in search of her target.

Riley currently stars in CBC’s Frankie Drake Mysteries as Trudy Clarke. In 2012, the Canadian-Jamaican singer, songwriter and actress made her Broadway debut as Nala in The Lion King. During her 4-year Broadway run, Riley appeared in Jesse Owens’ critically acclaimed biopic Race. She is also co-founder of the Riley&Rose clothing line, which was inspired by a desire to encourage people to celebrate their freedom. She is repped by Amanda Rosenthal Talent Agency and Randi Ross of Phoenix Artists, Inc.
