No doubt you've already figured out where you've seen Eric McCormack. He played Will Truman in the massively successful Will & Grace for eight seasons. The show wrapped in 2006, and by some Canadian magic, it seems that 53-year-old McCormack miraculously hasn't aged whatsoever. Since then, his most notable role has been as the brilliant Dr. Daniel Pierce in crime drama Perception.

Before Travelers, Mackenzie Porter played young mormon girl Naomi Bohannon on Hell on Wheels, a Western set around the time of the American Civil War. She replaced Siobhan Williams, who had previously played Naomi during Season 3.

While Porter has had a few acting gigs, her true passion lies somewhere else: Country music. A born-and-bred cattle ranch girl herself, she's a talented musician who's been nominated for 6 country music awards. She also does regular covers on her Instagram— check out her amazing voice below:

Patrick Gilmore's somewhat of a seasoned sci-fi veteran thanks to his long-running role as astrophysicist Volker on Stargate Universe. More recently, he played Shaun in polyamorous romance series You Me Her, alongside fellow Travelers actor Jennifer Spence.

Nesta Cooper's acting career is still in its relative infancy, with a few small roles on her CV. However, she did play Dahlia Hays in Heroes Reborn, a miniseries that followed Heroes. Guess we know where she learned to be such a badass!

We know him from Travelers as a zen teen, but Jared Abrahamson's other characters have been quite different. He played high school jock Pete in MTV's Awkward for a few fleeting episodes, as well as Colonel Cole in the first season of Fear the Walking Dead.

He's also been in a number of films, including Hello Destroyer, where he played a young hockey player dealing with the fallout of assaulting a player on another team.

Yet another sci-fi star, Leah Cairns played adept pilot Margaret "Racetrack" Edmondson in Battlestar Galactica. Her character wasn't the biggest fan of Cylons, and was actually a massive racist. She also played the slightly-less-intense Lois in Interstellar.

Reilly Dolman is probably the freshest talent to join the cast of Travelers. He's had a few very small parts here and there, including a character called Connor on Supernatural.

But here's the funny thing: Most of his co-stars from Travellers have also had small roles on Supernatural. Mackenzie Porter, Patrick Gilmore, Nesta Cooper and Leah Cairns have all starred in the hugely successful horror fantasy series.
