Actress VERONICA WYLIE Surfaces in All-New ‘Bad Cop’ Episode of CBS Drama ‘S.W.A.T.’
Airing on January 15, 2020
In the episode, the S.W.A.T. team (Shemar Moore, Jay Harrington) goes after a ruthless crew that uses deadly force while stealing from card casinos. Wylie emerges entangled in the events as Rachel, but further details are being kept under wraps.
Wylie was thrilled to step into the action, adding "Rachel was such a fun character to develop because she is so different from who I am as a person. I always try to inhabit a role as thoroughly as possible in service to the script, and sometimes a piece of wardrobe or a prop can really help me take that final step into a character's life. This time it was the wig; once it was on, I looked and felt like a different person. The hair team did such a good job that everyone on set thought it was my natural hair. So, they were all surprised when they found out my hair is actually multi-colored and short!"
Born in Texas and raised in Columbus, Indiana, Wylie has been building a solid reputation since landing in Los Angeles. She is best known for her leading role as the naïve Natalie Conway, whose estranged brother (Brad Snedecker) comes back to town after their parents' death in the dramedy feature film, The Conway Curve, currently available on Amazon Prime. Wylie also showcases her skills both writing and starring in the award-winning web series, Adventures in Online Dating. Now streaming Season One on SeekaTV, the series humorously explores the difficulty with building intimacy through technology in the 21st century.
On stage, Wylie took on the leading role of Maddie in the West Coast premiere of Two M@th#rf*ck#rs On a Ledge and starred in the troubled leading role of Lady Macbeth. She also flexed her funny bone as the comedic relief character Mrs. Terrence in Night Must Fall. Her talents as a writer were on display when her full-length play Elegy was produced at her alma mater, Anderson University, and her one-act play, Jake and Jenny, was produced at the Thoroughbred Theatre in Midway, Kentucky.
Wylie just wrapped the sci-fi indie feature film, Beneath the Green, portraying Hunter Isles, the de facto leader of a team of scientists stranded on a deserted planet. She is also currently, in pre-production on Good Vibrations, a feature film she wrote about a sex therapist who’s still a virgin. This self-described “oddball with a sharp edge,” strives to creatively explore often-ignored aspects of human connection with her work.
