    She has a lead role on "The Cult", a show on the CW network, but I don't believe it will get a 2nd season.

    She reminds me of the young lady from "Glee" who does the M&M commercials, Naya Rivera.

    Not at all. They're just both close in skin tone with long hair. And skinny. No other resemblance & no disrespect to either lady.
