The protagonist of ABC’s new series, the sci-fi thriller The Whispers is FBI agent Claire Bennigan. She’s a specialist who works on cases related to children. So when several kids in Washington, DC start talking about the same imaginary friend (Drill) who convinces them to play dangerous games, Claire investigates. And that’s just at work. Claire is still trying to figure out what happened to her husband who is believed to have died in a plane crash. And she’s terrified that her son Henry is playing Drill’s game, too.
FBI Agent Claire Bennigan is portrayed by Lily Rabe. She’s best known for her roles on American Horror Story: Coven (Sister Mary Eunice McKee, Misty Day, Nora Montgomery), and The Good Wife (Petra). She’ll appear next in the horror film The Veil with Jessica Alba. The Whispers premieres Monday, June 1 at 10pm on ABC.
