Taryn in upcoming movie “Heaven’s Rain”
Five-0 actress Taryn Manning (Mary Ann McGarrett) spoke to Honolulu Star Advertiser reporter Mike Gordon to promote her new film “Heaven’s Rain”:
When she immersed herself in the role of Leslie Douglass for the film “Heaven’s Rain,” Manning found a story of survival. Leslie and her brother Brooks were teenagers when a pair of drifters took their family hostage in 1979 and killed their parents. Leslie was repeatedly assaulted, and both teens were shot and left for dead.
It was a meaty role for the 32-year-old Manning, whose recent acting credits on the CBS drama “Hawaii Five-0” offered a higher profile than the independent film she made last year.
Speaking about Five-0, Mike reported:
IF YOU’VE missed seeing Manning as Steve McGarrett’s tough-talking sister on “Five-0,” take heart. The actress said CBS honchos have told her that Mary Ann McGarrett will return.
“They are saying I will be back next season,” Manning said. “I will still be around.”
So by my count, I’ve seen writers, set designers, and now actors of the show all refer to a second season, but still no official announcement of an actual second season…intriguing.
