ABC’s Poe has found its female lead.
Natalie Dormer, who played Anne Boleyn on Showtime’s The Tudors, has been cast as a journalist in the drama pilot. As a woman working at a newspaper in 1840s Boston, Dormer’s character struggles for social equality and finds a partner in crime-solving in Edgar Allan Poe. (And you remember who’s playing Poe right? Not Maaaaatt Damon, as some called him, but ….).
