Indo-Canadian actress Parveen Kaur has been locked in for the fourth and final season of Jeff Rake’s mystery-drama series “Manifest.” Kaur, a series regular, will return along with Luna Blaise and Holly Taylor, reported Deadline. Kaur is seen as Saanvi Bahl in the Netflix series.
Citing sources, Deadline reported that “the new deals for the cast, whose original contracts expired in June, include sizable pay increases.” They participated in the #SaveManifest campaign “which helped keep the show at the top of the Netflix streaming rankings — and ultimately bring it back from the dead.” The series went to the streaming platform after NVC canceled it almost three months ago.
“Manifest” around the Montego Air Flight 828, which lands safely after a turbulent but routine flight, “only to realize that the world had aged five years — and their friends, families and colleagues, after mourning their loss, had given up hope and moved on,” per the series synopsis. “Now, faced with the impossible, they’re all given a second chance. But as their new realities become clear, a deeper mystery unfolds and some of the returned passengers soon realize they may be meant for something greater than they ever thought possible.”
Born and raised in Okanagan Valley in British Columbia, Canada, Kaur moved to Toronto when she was 18. She got her first recurring role in 2018, Guillermo del Toro’s horror drama series “The Strain in 2018,” after which she starred in the film “Through Black Spruce,” which premiered at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival. She received the 2017 MISAFF Star presented by ACTRA at the 6th annual Mosaic International South Asian Film Festival in Mississauga, Ontario.
Some of her other credits include the 2017 Canadian anthology film “White Night,” 2019 Canadian thriller film “American Hangman” and short films – “Five Dollars,” “Natalie,” “Latter,” and “Chameleon.”
