Vega’s character is Hillary Cole, a new recruit brought into ULTRA. She immediately becomes a rival for Stephen Jameson in training to be a supernatural agent. The catch is that ULTRA only wants one of its new agents to make it to the next stage of training. Whoever loses will get stripped of his or her powers.
Described as a “ruthless, paranormal version of Tracy Flick” (Reese Witherspoon‘s “Election” character), Hillary will stop at nothing to beat Stephen for the big prize.
“The Tomorrow People” airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. on The CW. Alexa Vega is first scheduled to appear in episode 11 of the current first season.
