Paige Turco has had a career that has spanned for decades — a career that has included All My Children, NYPD Blue, Damages, and Person Of Interest. But to this writer, she will always be remembered as the second April O’Neil from the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie franchise.
Turco will play Abby, mother to Clarke (Eliza Taylor), who is the authoritative chief medical officer of The Ark space station. She navigates the political spectrum with tact — especially after her husband was put to death as a traitor for revealing the truth about The Ark’s limited life-expectancy.
The Hundred is one of several projects vying for a spot on The CW’s Fall 2013 schedule. The schedule itself will be announced in May.
