Missick then stayed in the John Wells family and had a heavily recurring role in the TNT series “Animal Kingdom.” Other recent roles include a series regular on CBS All Access’s Tell Me A Story, Marvel’s Luke Cage, the lead opposite Brandy in BET’s comedy series “Zoe Ever After,” NBC’s drama “The Cape,” JJ Abrams’ “Six Degrees” for ABC.
