Star Trek 2 Adds Nazneen Contractor

Star Trek 2 Adds Nazneen Contractor

With shooting about to get underway, JJ Abrams and the Star Trek team have clearly shoved the warp speed lever forward on casting, as the list of names added to the sequel keeps growing every week. The latest person to jump aboard? Canadian actress Nazneen Contractor.

She’s been signed up to play Noel Clarke’s wife in the movie, though as of yet, the juicy details of how their characters interact with the crew of the Enterprise has yet to slip out. Empire’s Man In LA is even now designing a fiendish mind-probing device to find out what JJ Abrams knows.

Clarke, of course, was announced last week alongside Sherlock’s Benedict Cumberbatch, who has scored the main villain role. According to Simon Pegg's twitter, Cumberbatch will be starting on set this week. Other recent additions include Peter Weller and Alice Eve.

Contractor is likely best known for her stint as Kayla Hassan on 24, though she’s also cropped up in projects such as telly comedy Rules Of Engagement.
