CHARACTER

Catherine Oxenburg plays CASSANDRA BARRIS. Cassandra Barris has risen from the dregs of working class England to the top of her field as an international news correspondent. She also hosts her own talk show on the Alexander Satellite Network.

Bright, no nonsense, her dry sense of humor is the jaded result of climbing up through the rungs of a cruel world she knows all too well. Always on the hunt for a great story, she possesses a natural affinity for those who are suseptible to exploitation. But deep down she too wants to be inspired to know why she's here and to make sense of misery, suffering, and the meaning of life.
