She was recently seen in “Terminator: Genisys” with Emilia Clarke and Arnold Schwarzenegger and will appear later this year in the feature film “Air” alongside Norman Reedus and Djimon Hounsou. Holt’s breakout role was her appearance in the 1991 film “Black Robe,” which earned her a Genie Award nomination. In 2012, she stared alongside Kate Beckinsale in the fourth installment of the “Underworld” series, “Underworld: The Awakening.” Her other film credits include “Resident Evil: Apocalypse,” “Rapa Nui” and “Chinese Puzzle.”

MacGyver” stars Lucas Till as the titular hero, along with George Eads and Justin Hires, and is executive produced by Peter Lenkov, Craig O’Neill, James Wan, Henry Winkler, Lee Zlotoff and Michael Clear.
