Soaps.com has learned that Young and Restless actress Alyvia Alyn Lind, who plays Faith Newman, has joined an upcoming Netflix series entitled Daybreak. Lind shared the news of her new role along with a photo of her and a few of her fellow cast members on her Instagram account, and enthused, “So excited to announce that i will be apart of this amazing show with an amazing cast and crew!!! @netflix” She also posted in her Instagram story that she will be living in Albuquerque, New Mexico for the next six months, presumably this is where the series is being shot.
Based on the graphic novel of the same name by Brian Ralph, Daybreak surrounds the story of a teenager named Josh who, along with a band of misfits, is searching for his girlfriend in post-apocalyptic California. Lind will appear as Angelica, a 12 year-old pyromaniac, a member of the group, who must fight off various gangs they encounter.
Lind’s most high-profile castmate in Daybreak is actor Matthew Broderick, best known for his enduring role in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, who plays Burr. Also co-starring are Colin Ford (Supernatural) as Josh, Austin Crute (Orange is the New Black) as Wesley, Jeante Godlock (The Simone Biles Story: Courage to Soar) as Mona Lisa, Cody Kearsley (Riverdale) as Turbo Bro Jock, and Krysta Rodriguez (Smash) as Ms. Crumble.
While the busy and talented young actress recently returned to Y&R to appear in the Halloween episodes as Faith, she has kept steadily working on other outside projects as well. Lind finished taping Hulu’s Future Man, and also wrapped a film role in Walk Ride Rodeo, in which she portrays a young cowgirl.
Netflix has ordered 10 episodes for the first season of the sci-fiction drama, Daybreak, which is slated to debut in 2019.
