V-WARS (Netflix) - Adrian Holmes and Jacky Lai have both signed onto the Ian Somerhalder-led vampire drama. Holmes will play Fayne, "the lynchpin in a horrifying virus with brutal consequences.

Lai then will portray Kaylee Vo, "a struggling young online journalist - a would-be Assange who will do or say almost anything to advance her career. A fierce, funny, hustling fringe player, she breaks the biggest story imaginable and soon finds herself a key part of that story with a growing list of deadly enemies." (Deadline.com)
