Greek-Canadian actress Tracy Spiridakos will be one of the stars of American TV producer J.J. Abram’s new show, Revolution, to be broadcast by NBC in September, based on a story line of what it would be like to live in a world without electricity.
She will play a character named Charlie Matheson, the headstrong, curious and daring daughter of Rachel and Ben Matheson, storming in an adventure aiming to save the world in a post-apocalyptic future. When an unknown phenomenon permanently disables all advanced technology on the planet, people are forced to return to a state of living comparable to the Industrial Revolution.
Amidst dangers and militias, the Matheson family must find the way to explain what deprived the world of all technological benefits as well as reverse the effects. As if perfectly created for this role, Spiridakos told GQ magazine that she enjoys playing Playstation and watching Battlestar Galactics.
The beautiful actress was born to Greek parents, Anastasia and George, in Greece and spent some of her childhood years in the family village. Then she moved to Canada but said she still holds on to her Spartan/Athenian identity. She is best known for her work on TV with Majority Rules!, Tower Prep, Psych and Hellcats, but is is now taking a step toward becoming a star, even without the limelight.
