The Messengers Erin Carter
Meet Vera, a main character in the upcoming show “The Messengers.”

In The CW’s new drama “The Messengers,” Shantel Van Santen plays Vera, radio-astronomer whose son was kidnapped seven years ago. Vera has struggled since losing her son and is now working for the National Deep Space Agency alongside Alan Harris. Present day, Vera witnesses a mysterious object plummet to Earth in the New Mexico desert. The energy from the impact stops her heart for a few moments. When she wakes she finds she is connected to four strangers and that they have been deemed The Messengers, Angels of the Apocalypse. They must prevent the impending rapture and save mankind. Vera has difficulty accepting the concept of faith after the loss of her son, fighting her destiny.

“The Messengers” centers around five individuals who die as a result of an earthly phenomenon. When they return to earth as Angels with unique abilities, they must band together to stop the devil who has come to earth to destroy mankind in the days of Armageddon.

Be sure to check out the new faith series, premiering tonight at 9:00 p.m. ET on the CW.
