In the TV movie Deadly Ex, Gary Emerson (Jason Gerhardt) makes a big mistake at his high school reunion when he kisses his former girlfriend Valerie (Natasha Henstridge). She takes the steamy kiss as a green light to seduce him but when Gary says, “I can’t, I’m married,” Valerie goes ballistic. She doesn’t just stalk Gary, she also terrorizes his wife Jess (Marguerite Moreau) and teenage daughter Carissa.
Carissa is portrayed by Sammi Hanratty. The 21-year-old actress is known for her roles on The Vampire Diaries (Violet Fell, see below), Salem (Dollie Trask), Chosen (Megan Acosta), The Unit (Jenny Gerhardt), Pushing Daisies (Young Chuck), and The Suite Life of Zack and Cody (Holly), among others. Deadly Ex premieres on LMN on Sunday, February 12 at 8pm.
