Deadline is reporting that Jaylin Fletcher is the latest name to join the cast of TNT’s TV adaptation of Snowpiercer.
The television series is set seven years after the world has become a frozen wasteland and the remnants of humanity inhabit a gigantic, perpetually moving train that circles the globe. The show will tackle issues such as class warfare, social injustice and the politics of survival.
Jaylin Fletcher (whose credits include Saturday Church and The Female Brain) will be playing the role of Miles. Whip smart and talented, Miles is one of the few children in the tail end of the train. Miles has the intelligence to potentially move up the train if he can get a coveted apprenticeship.
