Terry: Can you tell us anything about Shantel VanSanten’s character on The Messengers?
Shantel plays Vera Buckley, a scientist working for the National Deep Space Agency. Vera is one of the first messengers we meet in the pilot episode. She works along side technician Alan Harris (Craig Frank) and they are the first to notice the incoming meteor. She is struck down by the energy pulse given off when the meteor crashes and comes back to life as a messenger, an angel of the apocalypse. Each of the messengers awaken with a specific power. While we don’t learn about Vera’s power in the first episode, she does have one and we will see and learn more about it a few episodes in.
