Becoming one of the lead actors in The Orville, Halston Sage’s versatility and incredible acting prowess have kept her fans in so much awe. The actress stole the heart of her fans not only with her drilled, strength-filled, talented acts in the drama series but also with her unique customed alienated looks.
In each episode, she gave her best shot and made an emotional filled scene towards the end of the first season of the series; her character returning home and making peace with her family.
With her leaving planet earth to Xelayan, many have concluded that this may likely be the end of her appearance in the series. Here is what we know about the actress’s fate in the well-loved TV show.
Is Halston Sage Returning to The Orville?
The drama series, The Orville started airing in 2017, with Halton Sage being part of the casts where she portrayed the role of Alara Kitan – chief of security as well as an alien woman who has superpowers. Her character was not only praised for her overwhelming performance but her unique customed alienated face and ears made her stand out.
In the series, her character’s unusual strength is based practically on the different amounts of gravitational force on planet earth and planet Xelaya. However, if Xeleyans stay for a long time on earth, their bodies become accustomed to its gravity hence they lose their powers.
After staying for a long period of time on planet earth, as a Xelaya, Halston Sage’s character began to lose her powers, therefore, returned home in a quest to renew her powers. Like the prodigal son, she was welcomed but earned more respect from her family after she saved the family from attackers.
While a few fans were led to thinking that the series had maybe come to an end, they were astonished when it was announced that Lieutenant Alara Kitan (Halston Sage’s character) was out of the show subsequent to her appearing in some episodes of season 2.
After she left, she returned to make an appearance in the second season’s finale which in a way gave Alara’s fans hope that maybe she could return in subsequent seasons/episodes of the drama. However, The Orville as much as Halston Sage has made it rather difficult for the followers of the series to know for sure whether or not she is ever going to return, especially now that the series has found a Xelayan officer in Talla Kelayi (Jessica Szohr).
In The Orville, Halston Sage acted alongside other A-list actors like Seth MacFarlane, Adrianne Palicki, Penny Jerald, Scott Grimes, Peter Macon, and Mark Jackson amid others.
What is Halston Doing Now?
Upon leaving The Orville, Halston found herself a role to keep her busy. She landed the main role of Ainsley Whitly in Prodigal Son, an American crime drama television series, created by Chris Fedak and Sam Sklaver which premiered on the 23rd of September 2019. Halston Sage’s role in Prodigal Son is nothing like her supernatural powers wielding role in The Orville, rather, her role of Ainsley Whitley is a journalist, and daughter of a serial killer known as The Surgeon.
Halston Sage in a bid to enable her portray her role with excellence used her spare period to read books in line with children of serial killers. The drama seems to be gaining quite the traction as Fox Broadcasting Company in October 2019 ordered for a second season. Some of the other actors featured in the drama include Lou Diamond Phillips, Tom Payne, Bellamy Young, Halston Sage, Aurora Perrineau, and Michael Sheen among others.
