Posted on

Royo will play Henry, a soulful taxi driver who is unexpectedly forced into a tense situation with Olivia (Anna Torv).

But are we talking about the [warning: incoming spoiler] real Olivia or Fauxlivia? My guess is it’s Fauxlivia, since the real one won’t be running into any cab drivers while in captivity “over there.”

Royo’s casting comes a week after Fringe recruited Amy Madigan to play the pivotal role of Olivia’s mom.
