Sleepy Hollow Season 3 is getting even sexier! The Fox historical/supernatural drama is adding Nikki Reed in a brand-new series regular role. The actress joins the already incredibly attractive cast of Tom Mison (pseudo-time-traveling Revolutionary War soldier Ichabod Crane), Nicole Beharie (badass modern-day Det. Abbie Mills), and the rest of the hot, supernatural evil-fighting crew.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Reed, 27, will play Betsy Ross — yes, the flag-sewing heroine from your history books — but a “sexy” version of the character “with an unsuspecting physical prowess.” The famous seamstress is also secretly “a dynamic colonial insider, a secret operative within George Washington’s mysterious ring of spies,” THR revealed.
It’s still unclear whether Reed’s first full-time TV gig will see the character — who has already been mentioned as a past love of Mison’s Crane — join the show in the past, as part of the series’ frequent flashbacks, or in the present day.
“We are all very excited to welcome Nikki Reed into the world of Sleepy Hollow,” co-creator Len Wiseman told THR of the casting news. “Nikki’s the perfect choice to bring a smart and sexy edge to our show’s twisted version of American icon Betsy Ross.”
Although the first two seasons of Sleepy Hollow were filmed in Wilmington, N.C., Season 3 is relocating to Atlanta, Ga. — which is where Reed’s new husband, Ian Somerhalder, films The Vampire Diaries.
The couple married in April 2015 after a whirlwind romance. Season 3 of Sleepy Hollow will premiere on Oct. 1 at 9 p.m. ET on Fox.
