Lindsay Donner


Nancy Anne Sakovich plays the role of Lindsay Donner,the self-described “hunter and gatherer of information” for the team. Daughter of a Nobel Prize-winning Chemist,Lindsay Donner rejected her silver spoon upbringing to live in the “real” world, traveling widely to learn about world cultures.
Having a double master in biology and psychology,she’s a passionate and involved field expert who uses her scientific and academic background to discover the truth.Donner believes sociology,anthropology,and behavioral psychology can solve most mysteries.

Although Donner comes from a very wealthy and privileged background,she can put on a backpack and travel the world to live with people in their own cultures,in order to study their traditions,customs and legends”, says Sakovich. “She’s fascinated by mysticism,mythology and how the ‘supernatural’ is intertwined with every day lives”

Donner is smart,zealous,and as a relatively new member of the team,she tends to raise uncomfortable questions concerning OSIR’s need for secrecy,and its secretive practices.
Highly independent,always challenging her fears,she’ll use any tactic to get the heart of a case.
