In the images, Van — played by series newcomer Lauren Ambrose — can be seen on the job, and while we can't tell you where she works (an art shop of some kind?), it looks like they have some pretty cool pieces there.
She's still rocking that casual-cool look, and perhaps most notably, the remains of her scars from that brutal wolf attack in the past can clearly be seen on the left side of her face. She's all smiles at work, but the third image tells a different story, where she has a decidedly less enthusiastic expression on her face.

Season 1 of the Showtime drama was chock-full of mysteries about what exactly went down when a high school soccer team survived a plane crash and was then stranded in the wilderness for 18 months. By the end of season 1, one of the biggest remaining mysteries was — besides Shauna (Melanie Lynskey), Misty (Christina Ricci), Natalie (Juliette Lewis), and Taissa (Tawny Cypress) — which of the girls might have survived into adulthood, and which could be involved in the nefarious things going on in present day.
When Showtime cast two-time Emmy and Tony nominee Ambrose (Six Feet Under) as the adult version of Van, it became clear that she was one of them. Additionally, Liv Hewson, who plays teenage Van, was upped to a series regular, which means viewers can expect a lot more of the character in season 2.

Discussing the series, Lauren Ambrose confessed that she loved Liv’s performance as Van in the show's first season. Liv Hewson’s performance paved the way for Ambrose to star in the show, and for that, she was thankful.

She explained,“I just really loved Liv’s performance that was so good that they decided to keep the character around, and now I have a gig so I'm grateful for that. I'm so amazed by the combination of extremely vulnerable and extremely tough, extremely capable.” Ambrose hinted at the changes in Van's life now that she’s an adult. Avoiding spoilers, Ambrose vaguely gave some details about Van in the second season of Yellowjackets. She said,
"The character’s a survivor from the first scene you see her. She's waking her drunk mother before she goes off to the soccer trip. And the performance was so beautiful and open and alive, even in the face of so many harrowing staring-death-in-the-face experiences. And I think when we find Van grown up that the character is kind of hardened, calcified and dimmed, and seemingly okay. Functioning, clearly, sort of, but the light is turned way down.” is a website that provides you with sport updates and Entertainment news to brighten your day.
