Sleepy Hollow” has tapped “Twilight” star Nikki Reed for the series regular role of Betsy Ross in season three, Variety has confirmed.

Described as being sexy with an unsuspected physical prowess, Betsy Ross is the famous seamstress known and loved for sewing our nation’s first flag by day, but by night she’s a dynamic, secret operative within George Washington’s mysterious ring of spies. She’s also a former flame of Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison).

The show is replenishing its series regular roster for the new season, after Katia Winter and John Noble’s characters were killed at the end of season two, and Orlando Jones exited the series before filming commenced on season three.

  1. What a shame and an insult, in so many ways says:

    Was planning to tune into Sleepy Hollow but will not. The casting of “Ichabod Crane’s Felicity” is sickening and another indication the show does not consider Nicole Beharie worthy of being the lead actress. Too much Blackness for the writers, producers and advertisers…? It would seem so. This announcement just mad a lot of people very unhappy and will guarantee reduced ratings.

    “sexy with an unsuspecting physical prowess” <- I know that's the first thing I think of when I think of Betsy Ross…
