Lily Rabe Cast in ABC Pilot ‘The Visitors’ and Horror Film ‘The Veil’

Lily Rabe at Fox's Golden Globes 2014 After PartyAfter appearing on three seasons of the anthological series American Horror Story, Lily Rabe has recently been cast in two upcoming projects.

The first is an ABC pilot called The Visitors, an alien-themed drama based on the short story Zero Hour by Ray Bradbury. The show will follow humanity’s race to defeat unseen alien invaders who are using the imaginative minds of children to launch their attack. TVLine reports:

Rabe will play Claire Bennigan, a dogged Child Specialist with the FBI investigating a string of strange cases involving children and their imaginary friend “Drill.” Her intuition — and compassion into the child’s mind – are her “superpowers.” But when she makes the devastating discovery that her own son is in the Enemy’s clutches, Claire’s confidence as a mother – and Agent – will be tested.

Rabe’s second project is a low-budget thriller The Veil from director Phil Joanou. According to The Hollywood Reporter:

Veil‘s story revolves around members of a religious cult known as Heaven’s Veil who take their own lives. The truth behind what really happened remains buried deep in the memory of the sole survivor, a 5-year-old girl, who returns to the compound with a documentary crew as an adult. They soon discover something that is far more terrifying than anything they could have imagined.

With Jessica Alba set to play the documentarian,  Rabe will portray the lone survivor, all grown up. Thomas Jane (of HBO’s Hung  and the 2007 film The Mist) has also been cast in the film, but his role has not yet been announced.

Rabe has also filmed her role of Commander Lyme in both The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2, set to be released on Nov. 21, 2014 and Nov. 20, 2015, respectively.

No word yet as to whether any these project will interfere with her potential return to AHS for its fourth season.
