In a dark future, America’s economy has collapsed after a terrorist attack. No one can afford to drive cars or live in nice places anymore; the city is filled with crime, problems and trash. One of the poor, lost citizens of this new America is a genetically engineered super soldier, escaped from the lab that created her and a collection of other genetically engineered kids. Dark Angel was set in a very dark world. The lead was Jessica Alba who played Max, one of the escaped kids who just wants to be normal. Now full grown, she works for a messenger service in the post-collapse Seattle. She is also looking for her long-lost guinea pig “siblings” while avoiding the Feds trying to drag her back into the lab. The handsome and wealthy wheelchair bound journalist Logan, played by Michael Weatherly, is Alba’s sidekick and love interest. The two start battling corruption and crime in this scary, torn apart world together.
Dark Angel ran from 2000 to 2002 with just two short, beloved seasons. The story was imaginative, new, and bold. However, it was cancelled in 2002, leaving us with just 42 episodes of Alba kicking butt on the SciFi channel. The series really put Alba on the map in Hollywood and gave Weatherly’s career a boost as well. The cast of Dark Angel haven’t all been seen together since 2002. So what have all of our favorite, genetically engineered stars been up to? Where are they today?

1 Kevin Durand – Joshua
Vikings actor Kevin Durand once played Joshua in Dark Angel. Between 2002 and now, the actor has popped up in many films and TV series and made for TV movies since 2002, including the gritty western film 3:10 to Yuma, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and as Martin Keamy on Lost. The star and his wife, Sandra, welcomed their first child (a baby girl) in September 2015. He is currently still work on the insanely popular History Channel’s drama Vikings and also the horror vampire hunter TV show the Strain on FX. The actor says that coming into the series Vikings in the third season was very nerve wracking since he was already a huge fan of the show.
