'Sleepy Hollow': First photos of Nikki Reed as Betsy Ross
Exclusive: 'Twilight' actress as American flagmaker Betsy Ross
Somehow we think she’s going to do a lot more than sew.
Here are the first two photos (above and below) of Sleepy Hollow‘s version of original American flagmaker Betsy Ross as played by The Twilight Saga‘s Nikki Reed.
In season 3 of Fox’s historical fantasy, Ross is the only female member of George Washington’s “Culper Ring” of spies, and her 13-star flag has supernatural properties which will help Crane (Tom Mison) and Abbie (Nicole Beharie) throughout the season. Since Reed has equestrian skills in real life (last year she adopted a horse with husband Ian Somerhalder), Hollow will also take advantage of that (luckily for Crane and Co., producers will keep the show’s other rider — the Headless Horseman — in the stable this season).
