Caitlin Bassett

Actress, NBC's Quantum Leap

Actress Caitlin Bassett plays Addison Augustine on the new Quantum Leap, NBC. The Baltimore-area native’s father served in Vietnam and her grandfather served in WWII.  Following in their footsteps, Caitlin joined the military shortly after graduating high school at 18.

As an intelligence analyst for the U.S. Army and the National Security Agency, Bassett’s tenacity and dedication led her to devote seven years of her life to active duty with three international combat deployments, two of which were in Afghanistan.

While in the military, Bassett took advantage of the GI bill and got her undergraduate degree in legal studies from the University of Maryland University College. After concluding her military service, Bassett moved to New York, where she attended Brooklyn Law School before deciding to pursue acting full time. She was accepted to the Stella Adler conservatory where she studied before auditioning for Quantum Leap.

Though she was very busy pursuing acting through auditioning, studying, and doing student and indie projects around New York, Quantum Leap serves as Bassett’s professional acting debut.
