The Hollywood Reporter reported today that Nikki Reed (Twilight, Thirteen) has been cast as Betsy Ross in Fox’s ‘Sleepy Hollow’. The show’s version of Ross is said to be “sexy with an unsuspecting prowess”, who is the seamstress known for the American Flag by day, and secret opertative of George Washington’s ring of spies by night. Ichabod (Tom Mison) had mentioned in previous season that Ross was a former flame.
Len Wiseman (co-creator/EP) said “We are all very excited to welcome Nikki Reed into the world of Sleepy Hollow.”Nikki’s the perfect choice to bring a smart and sexy edge to our show’s twisted version of American icon, Betsy Ross.”
