Ballers star Anabelle Acosta has landed a recurring role on ABC’s new thriller Quantico, EW has learned.

Quantico stars Bollywood actress and soon-to-be American breakout Priyanka Chopra as one of a diverse group of recruits who have arrived at the FBI Quantico Base for training. They are the best, the brightest and the most vetted, so it’s especially shocking that in the future, one of the recruits will turn out to be a sleeper terrorist responsible for the most devastating terrorist attack on U.S. soil since 9/11.

Acosta will appear in a multi-episode arc as Nathalie Vazquez, a former cop from Laredo, Texas. Driven, kick-ass, and fiercely competitive, she’s almost mercenary in her focus, and more interested in always coming out on top than in being a team player.

Quantico—which hails from Josh Safran, Mark Gordon, Nick Pepper, Jake Coburn and Robert Sertner—will premiere Sunday, Sept. 27 at 10 p.m. ET on ABC.
