British actress Ophelia Lovibond has earned her first U.S. television debut with a recurring role on CBS’ “Elementary.”

Lovibond is set to play Kitty Winter, the new protege to Jonny Lee Miller’s Sherlock Holmes. The character immediately becomes rivals with her predecessor, Joan Watson (Lucy Liu). Kitty’s reasons for undertaking Holmes’ partnership are nebulous, and her new arrangement with Holmes will have ongoing repercussions for his relationship with Joan.

Lovibond credits include U.K. television series “The Wilsons” and “Mr. Sloane.” She will also be seen in Marvel’s upcoming “Guardians of the Galaxy.”

Her character will first appear during “Elementary’s” season premiere on Oct. 30.

She is repped by ICM in the States, Jane Epstein at Independent Talent Group in the U.K., Principato-Young Entertainment and Public Eye Communications.
