'The Stranger She Brought Home' Full Cast List: Meet Lesa Wilson and others from Lifetime thriller
Lifetime's 'The Stranger She Brought Home' will bring a new twisted plot where the predator is trapped in his own game
Lifetime Movies & Network has been betting big on thrillers. To be honest, most have worked for them. Even though 'The Stranger She Brought Home' is not a part of the network's 'Summer of Secrets' programming event, it seems like quite an edge-of-the-seat thriller. At least, that is what the sneak peeks tell us.
Before we explore the cast of the film, let's take a quick look at what can be expected from 'The Stranger She Brought Home'. The official logline reads: "Amelia, a 911 Operator who likes to secretly insert herself into the lives of her callers, pretends to be the fiance of an injured man who has fallen into a coma. When he wakes with no memory, she decides to keep the ruse going, and convinces him to go home with her; but as her life intertwines with his, she learns that he is a man with a dark secret – he’s a killer on the run."
She has had an interesting evolution in terms of career growth. When Lesa Wilson was in high school, she participated in a collaborative educational event between her school and the local trade school. She went on to study radio and television broadcasting, which got her a gig as a radio DJ and later a production assistant and teleprompter operator. For the next five years, she worked as a model and participated in 'American Idol', where she was selected for the semi-finals. In 2006, she won Miss GA USA and 2nd runner up at Miss USA.
The same year, she moved to Atlanta and looked for acting jobs. And just like that, she booked a part in 'Belles', a film about four Southern girls who are thick friends. She played the role of Caitlyn, a bubbly and positive girl. When not acting, Wilson spends time coming up with ways to protect and preserve the environment. She is a notable member of the Plastic Pollution Coalition.
Born as Thomas Cameron Jebo III, this actor is known for his roles in 'NCIS' (2003), 'Austin & Ally' (2011) and 'Power Rangers Megaforce' (2013). He was also in 'Hard Sell' and 'Walker Payne'. He comes with experience and has done a fair bit of work but what really helped him shine was his portrayal of Orion aka The Silver Ranger. Though Jebo enjoyed playing Orion, he was not too keen on the way the character was developed.
'The Stranger She Brought Home' will premiere on June 24 at 8/7c on Lifetime Movies & Network. For more information, check your local listings.
