Doug Liman was born on July 24, 1965 in New York City, New York, USA. He is a producer and director, known for Edge of Tomorrow (2014), Swingers (1996) and Fair Game(2010).

Maddie grew up in Wilmington and Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina with her parents and two sisters. Maddie began dancing at the age of seven, almost immediately getting picked up by FoxTroupe Dance Company under the direction of Mira Fox Lamendola. While competing in FoxTroupe, Maddie won many awards, most notably was a scholarship to Broadway Dance Theatre in New York City awarded to her by Mia Michael's at The Pulse Convention and the triple threat award at Access Broadway. At fourteen she moved to Opera House Theatre Company and under the direction of Lou Criscuolo and Ray Kennedy she enjoyed several starring roles at Thalian Hall in Wilmington. When she was fifteen she did an audition for casting director, Jackie Burch who immediately referred her to Ric Beddingfield who is still her manager today. After a lot of convincing by Ric Beddingfield, her reluctant parents gave her one month to do auditions in Los Angeles. If she did not land a role they expected her to return home to finish school and attend college. At fifteen, she and her mom came to Los Angeles for one month and she landed a supporting role in the film, God Bless America by Bobcat Goldthwait. Three months later she landed a starring role on a Fox series called The Finder with Michael Clarke Duncan and Geoff Stultz. Along with her mom,she split her time between Los Angeles and North Carolina for a couple of years and now lives there full time with her German Shepard, Priscilla.

Daniel Maslany is an actor, known for Four in the Morning (2016), Murdoch Mysteries(2008) and Goliath (2018).

Based on the third novel in the “Jumper” series by Steven Gould, IMPULSE features a rebellious 16-year-old girl who has always felt different from her peers and has longed to escape from her seemingly quaint small town. When a local football player attempts to assault her, she discovers she has the extraordinary ability to teleport. This newfound power confirms her conviction that she really was different from everybody else, but it now makes her the focus of those who want to control her. #ImpulseSeries
