Frankie Adams makes her Hollywood debut in 'The Expanse'

Get your first official look at our girl Frankie Adams in The Expanse's Season 2 Trailer as Bobbie Draper.

The former Shortland Street star is already being labeled as a fan favorite for Syfy channel's space drama.

Ty Franck and Daniel Abraham, authors of the best-selling book series which spawned the TV series, said Drankie was a perfect fit for the role.

"She's six feet tall, she's athletic, she can act, and she's Samoan," they told Blastr.com.

"Bobbie is very physical so we wanted an actress who was very comfortable with being physical. An actress who never appeared to be intimidated in any situation but who could occupy as much space as any of the other cast and could be intimidating to them."
