YouTuber Sailor J (aka Jahkara Smith) is set to recur in NOS4A2, AMC’s horror drama that will premiere in 2019.
NOS4A2 is based on the bestselling novel of the same name by Joe Hill. It tells the story of Vic McQueen, a young woman on a mission to hunt and destroy Charles Manx. Manx is a mysterious entity who kidnaps children and imprisons them in a place called “Christmasland,” where they are forbidden to be unhappy. Smith will play Maggie, a quirky librarian with a bag of Scrabble tiles that is not all that it seems.
On YouTube, Smith boasts over 260,000 subscribers that she accrued with comedic makeup tutorials and how-to videos she mixes in with healthy doses of comedy and social commentary.
She is currently working on her first young adult novel.
Jami O'Brien of Fear the Walking Dead and Hell on Wheels will serve as showrunner. NOS4A2 will premiere sometime in 2019.
