An actress familiar to viewers of The CW’s Gossip Girl and CBS’ Person of Interest is coming to Fox’s midseason thriller The Following. Susan Misner has singed on for a potential recurring role on the Kevin Williamson drama. She’ll play Jenny, a survivor type with a link to Ryan Hardy’s (Kevin Bacon) past.

The Following stars Bacon and James Purefoy as an FBI agent and serial killer, respectively, playing a cat-and-mouse game. Earlier this summer, Fox unveiled The Following to audiences at Comic-Con and they had this to say.
