Under The Dome cast promises wild ride

WILMINGTON, NC (WBTV) - Plenty of suspenseful action and a couple of love triangles.

That's what the cast of Under The Dome on WBTV and CBS promise for this upcoming season which begins Thursday, June 25.

"People are going to freak out," said Mackenzie Lintz who plays "Norrie."

Show producers chose to continue filming this third season in Wilmington, NC, despite significant changes to film incentives in the state. When WBTV visited the set just a couple of weeks ago, our crews had a chance to see some of the new sets for this season and meet some of the new cast members.

One of those is television veteran Marg Helgenberger.

"I think my character is one of those who in the beginning people are going to be like hmm...," Helgenberger told us.

While you may know her best from previous roles on CSI or China Beach, there is something you might not know about Helgenberger.

"I've been a Carolinas Panthers fan for a while, since the last time I was shooting in Wilmington, actually," she said.

Her Panthers Pride is clear in the photos she posts on social media.

Each of the new cast members we spoke with say they were welcomed with open arms by the cast members who have been "under the dome" from the beginning.
