Katherine Renee Turner As A New Regular!
Additionally, Juilliard grad Katherine Renee Turner has joined the mother series, FBI. She will be a series regular from Season 3. She is all set to portray Tiffany Wallace, an outspoken Fed who previously worked with the NYPD.
Tiffany had worked mostly in the narcotics department. She felt in love with being an agent after serving on a joint task force. She is still a bit of an outlier at 26 Fed but is fully determined.
Turner is a Juilliard School graduate. She starred in Lynn Nottage’s Crumb From The Table Of Joy and Dominique Morisseau’s Paradise Blue’s productions. Turner also won awards for her starring role in the San Francisco production of Danai Gurira’s The Convert before attending Juilliard.
