‘Ballers’ Actress Joins ABC’s ‘Quantico’ in Major Arc

Anabelle Acosta (“Ballers”) has joined ABC’s upcoming fall drama “Quantico” in a multi-episode arc, Variety has learned.

Currently appearing in HBO’s Dwayne Johnson series, Acosta will play Nathalie Vasquez in “Quantico.” The recurring character is described as a former cop from Laredo, Texas, who’s driven, kick-ass, fiercely competitive and more interested in always coming out on top than being a team player.

“Quantico,” which debuts Sept. 27, stars Priyanka Chopra. The ensembler centers on a diverse group of recruits as they arrive at the FBI Quantico Base for training, and though it seems impossible, one of them is suspected of masterminding the biggest attack on New York City since 9/11.

Exec producers on the ABC Studios project are Joshua Safran, Mark Gordon, Nicholas Pepper, Jake Coburn and Robert Sertner.

Acosta’s other credits include “Castle,” “Supernatural” and “Perception. She is repped by CESD Talent Agency and Loch Powell at Leverage.
