'Under The Dome' adds Rachel Lefevre

The domed town of Chester Mills has another new resident.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Rachelle Lefevre has joined the ever growing cast of CBS' adaptation of Stephen King's "Under The Dome."

Lefevre will join the ensemble series as the female lead character Julia Shumway, an investigative reporter who is a recent transplant to the community of Chester Mills and develops an interest in an Army veteran on a mysterious mission played by Mike Vogel.

Based on King's best selling novel, "Under The Dome" revolves around the residents of the small town of Chester Mills, which is suddenly enclosed in a strange invisible barrier that cuts the area off from the outside world.

LeFevre joins a growing cast that has taken shape over the past few weeks, including Dean Norris ("Breaking Bad"), Jolene Purdy ("Glee"), Nicholas Strong ("Nashville"), Britt Robertson ("Life Unexpected") and Natalie Martinez ("CSI: NY"). The actress has a lengthy resume which spans the small screen and features, with her most notable roles in the "Twilight" films and CBS' "A Gifted Man."

Given LeFevre's character's last name of Shumway, I'm guessing the twist is that Julia is some relation to A.L.F., and the dome is the Melmac-ian people's retaliation on the people of Earth. Am I far off?
