Her role: When a Revolutionary War hero wakes up in modern-day New York, he's confronted by local law enforcement, and then paired with Beharie's character, feisty Lt. Abbie Mills. A novice cop, Beharie taps her own supernatural history of the city to fend off the four horsemen of the apocalypse. Where we've seen her before: On the big screen, Beharie portrayed Rachel Robinson, wife of legendary baseball player Jackie Robinson, in the biopic "42." Beharie is also known for her film debut as a single mother faced with drug charges in the drama "American Violet."
