“I couldn’t be more honoured to portray the role of Jane in Survive for Quibi. She’s a complex character fighting against the odds to not only save her life, but to also find her own source of strength and courage.

“I only hope this can impact anyone struggling with self-worth to understand they are braver than they know and to seek the support they need,” the actor said in a statement.
