A former con-artist and lover of Duke's (played by Eric Balfour), "Evi" Ryan is as beautiful as she is calculating and clever.

Antoine and Priestley will join Emily Rose, who plays "Audrey Parker," a former FBI agent with a knack for investigating the supernatural; Lucas Bryant, who plays "Nathan Wuornos," a handsome local cop with his own supernatural affliction; and Eric Balfour, who plays "Duke Crocker," a local smuggler and reluctant aide in solving Haven's troubles.

Haven is based on The Colorado Kid from renowned author Stephen King and will commence production on 13 episodes for Season Two in Nova Scotia on April 1, 2011 with an eye towards a Summer 2011 North American premiere.

Haven is produced by Entertainment One (eOne) and Big Motion Pictures in association with Piller/Segan/Shepherd and airs on Syfy in the U.S., Showcase in Canada and internationally on UNI's multiple Syfy Universal channels. Entertainment One controls the worldwide distribution rights to the one-hour series and concluded a deal with Germany's Tele M´┐Żnchen Group (TMG) for the television rights in Continental Europe.
