Actress Bridget Regan, who is best known for her role of Kahlan Amnell in the now-defunct, but fan-favorite, syndicated series ‘Legend of the Seeker’, has landed a pretty big role. She will be showing up this fall in the long-running USA Network drama White Collar.
According to a report at Deadline, Regan will play Rebecca Lowe, a beautiful rare book scholar who “becomes entangled with Neal’s (series lead Matt Bomer) latest con, and then ultimately with Neal himself”.
Yes, Neal/Matt fans…he is getting a new love interest!
Okay, now that you have all taken a breath, there’s more. Regan will be appearing in a 10-episode arc, making her appearance a major recurring role in the popular drama. And, this means that Neal will not be involved with on-again, off-again girlfriend Sara Ellis (recurring guest star Hilarie Burton), with whom Neal parted ways in the season finale last season.
Among Regan’s other TV credits are the short lived series ‘The Black Donnellys’ and guest spots on ‘New Amsterdam’, ‘NCIS: Los Angeles’, ‘Person of Interest’, ‘Perception’ and a recurring role on ‘Beauty And the Beast’. She also appeared in the made-for-TV movie ‘Hide’ and was one of the stars of the ABC pilot ‘Murder in Manhattan’ that, sadly, did not get picked up for this fall’s TV line-up.
‘White Collar’ will be back for its fifth season on the USA Network sometime this October.
