  1. “this is me at my most sadistic-and truthful.”

    Are there any leads on the casting of the “twins” Lena and Camille in this remake of the French show “Les Revenants”? The two sisters were prominent characters in the show and the two girls cast had an uncanny resemblance that made it credible that they were twin sisters at different ages.

      India Enenga (Treme) will play Camille, and Sophie Lowe (Once Upon a Time in Wonderland) will play Lena.

      • Alex says:

        Congratulations to India! She was indeed amazing on HBO’s underrated series Treme. With the same producer of Bates Motel, this seems as though this is going to be great. Looking forward to seeing this as well..
