‘Lost’ Actress Maggie Grace Lands Pivotal ‘Californication’ Role

Last month, Showtime revealed that it was casting a major female role for the sixth season of "Californication" with an eye towards creating a spinoff for the series. And while the "Californication" spinoff is by no means a sure thing, an actress has been selected for the part.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Maggie Grace has signed on for "Californication" season six as Faith, a young woman who is considered to be a muse/groupie for several famous rock stars. Previous descriptions of Faith have noted that "[although] she has a fondness for sex, drugs and rock and roll, she remains quite religious."

Faith will befriend David Duchovny's Hank Moody early in the sixth season and if you've ever watched the show then you know that it is a very safe assumption that they will wind up as lovers at some point. Grace's stint on "Californication" is slated to run for nine episodes and the fate of the potential spinoff hinges upon how eagerly the audience embraces her.

Grace is perhaps best known for her role as Shannon Rutherford on the first two seasons of "Lost," in addition to her appearances in Taken, Knight and Day, Lockout, The Fog, Suburban Girl and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 & Part 2. Grace will also appear in the upcoming Fox series, "The Following" opposite Kevin Bacon.

"Californication" season six will debut in early 2013 on Showtime.
