American actress Andrea Powell announced via her Twitter that she will be playing Therea Wiggin, Ender’s mother, in the upcoming Ender’s Game movie. Read her tweet:
She’s been Sasha in Twilight: Breaking Dawn 2, Karen Crezski in ABC’s The Gates and Gillian in Teen Spirit. You can read her full list of acting credits here. Is she how you pictured Ender’s mother in your head? Thanks @revolverjunkie for the tip!
Pure speculation and mild spoiler: Theresa Wiggin is an important character in the Shadow series. Movie sequels, anyone?
