Osherovich introduces Nolan, “a child of environmental activists who got into a city debate about the safety of a local mine, and a bullied teenager exploring gender identity. Nolan is skeptical of Carrie and the strange forces that start harassing West Pine after her arrival.”
Bryant plays Tasha, “the children of miners on the opposite side of the environmental debate. Despite the differences of their parents, Tasha and Nolan are best friends, albeit friends who react very differently to Carrie’s arrival. Where Nolan is skeptical at first, Tasha immediately seeks to help Carrie and learn more about the mysterious colony. “
Lee is Arthur Deane aka ‘AD’. “AD is Carrie’s former enemy mentor, tasked with hunting Carrie and returning her to the colony so she can face the consequences of her desertification.”
The page becomes Sara, “Carrie’s former best friend and flame from the Colony. Carrie and Sara have a long and complex history – a history that walks Carrie as she builds new relationships with Tasha and Nolan. “
Diamond plays Hosea, “the colonial leader of the forest, whose mission is to protect its secrets and uphold the practiced rules of the sacred institution of the community.”
Roberts plays Alex, Tasha’s loving father, and West Pine mining leader. Alex is naturally caring and welcomes Carrie. But he is facing great financial difficulties and pressures around the possible closure of the mines. The pressure that can make him a vulnerable colony to temptation. “
