With new kin discovered on each season of ”Alias,” Jennifer Garner’s Sydney Bristow has the fastest-growing family on TV. The latest newly unearthed member of the Bristow clan will be Sydney’s sister, to be played by Argentinian actress Mia Maestro, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Maestro will appear in the final three ”Alias” episodes this season and will return in the fall as a regular, according to the Reporter.
