The CW drama series The Tomorrow People follows a generation of humans born with paranormal abilities, who are the next evolutionary leap of mankind. Up until a year ago, Stephen (Robbie Amell) was a “normal” teenager, but then he learned that he is part of a genetically advanced race with the abilities of telekinesis, teleportation and telepathic communication, and that this race is being hunted down by a paramilitary group of scientists known as Ultra.
Returning with all new episodes, actress Alexa Vega is joining the show as fellow Ultra trainee Hillary, for a story arc in which Jedikiah (Mark Pellegrino) decides to see who is worthy of becoming an Ultra agent by forcing them to compete with each other. In this exclusive phone interview with Collider, Alexa Vega talked about how this role was offered to her, why she wanted to be a part of this show, the fun of playing such a conniving bitch, how much she still wants to learn about her character, her drive to fight for survival, learning how to do the teleporting stunts, and getting to do all of her own fighting. Checking out what she had to say after the jump.
