'Black Hearted Killer': Meet Julie McNiven, Jon Abrahams and Kelley Jakle, the cast of Lifetime drama thriller
Juley and Dennis are shocked by the sudden, untimely death of their young daughter and the couple is desperately trying to cope up with their situation. One way to do so was to donate her organs so that even in her death she will be helping someone, which is true to her nature.
Unbeknownst to them, things are only going to become messier from here on. When they had donated her organs, they had opted out of initiating any contact with the recipient, but should they choose to seek them out, the couple would meet them. And that is how they meet Vera. At first, Vera seems like a normal woman who has been reeling from the tragedy of her own accident/illness. Vera contacts Juley and Dennis to tell them how grateful she is to have their daughter's heart. But there is just something about her that is fishy and while Juley doesn't see it, her husband, Dennis, just knows that Vera is not who she claims to be.
So who is this mystery woman who suddenly seems to have everything against Juley and Dennis? Why does she want to hurt them? Meet the cast of this twisted Lifetime movie.
Julie McNiven as Juley
Julie plays the role of Juley who is coping with the untimely loss of her daughter. She suddenly finds herself to be the object of someone's obsession. The actress is known for her recurring roles in 'Mad Men' and 'Supernatural'. Her roles in 'The Possession of Michael King', 'A Christmas Arrangement', 'The Babymoon', 'Hawaii Five-0', and 'Doom Patrol' were also recognized. Julie is quite the gymnast. She studied swinging trapeze as a teenager at French Woods Festival of the Performing Arts.
Jon Abrahams as Dennis
Although Dennis is broken over the death of his daughter, he doesn't immediately trust Vera like his wife Juley does. Will his cynical, untrusting nature save their lives? The actor is best known for his role on Bobby in 'Scary Movie', Denny Byrnes in 'Meet the Parents', and Dalton Chapman in the horror movie 'House of Wax'. He is also known for 'My Boss's Daughter' and 'Boiler room'.
Abrahams comes from a long family of actors. His great uncle Mack Gray is known for his role in 'Goin' To Town', 'Applause', 'Take Me Out to the Ball Game', 'Rhubarb' and 'Who's Got the Action?' He was also a longtime friend and confidant of George Raft, Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra.
Kelley Jakle as Vera
Even though Vera seems like a normal woman who is simply grateful to receive organs that saved her life, she soon begins to show her true colors. As she increasingly crosses boundaries with Juley and Dennis, they become more and more suspicious of her. Will they know the truth about her intentions before it is too late?
The actress is known for her role in '42', a biographical film about baseball player Jackie Robinson. She co-starred alongside Harrison Ford as her great-grandfather Branch Rickey.
A part of the Americana duo band Robin Alice, it is hardly surprising that the actress is known for her role of Jessica Smith in the 'Pitch Perfect' series. In 2009, she took part in season one of 'The Sing-Off', a singing competition on NBC, as part of a group called 'The SoCals', but was eliminated in the third round. She would eventually return the next year as a part of another group 'The Backbeats' that would finish the contest in the third place.
