Nikki Reed to Play Historical Icon Betsy Ross on 'Sleepy Hollow'

Nikki Reed is set to become a series regular on Fox’s Sleepy Hollow in the role of historical figure Betsy Ross!

THR describes the character as “sexy with an unsuspecting physical prowess.” Betsy is the famous figure known for sewing America’s very first flag, but she’s also a “dynamic colonial insider” and an operative within a secret ring of George Washington’s spies.

“We are all very excited to welcome Nikki Reed into the world of Sleepy Hollow,” co-creator/EP Len Wiseman said. “Nikki’s the perfect choice to bring a smart and sexy edge to our show’s twisted version of American icon, Betsy Ross.”

    NO NO NO NO NO NO PLEASE NO! Sleepy Hollow is the first fantasy series I truly enjoy in a long while, ever since the ones I used to love let me down. I can’t say how DISAPPOINTED I am that now I’ll have to stop watching, since I refuse to give this woman any credit. I simply despise her and everything her fake self does, I can’t believe this. Call me immature, I really don’t care, but this news just broke my freaking heart!!

    Nikki will be filming a movie in upstate New York in August and she has two completed movies coming out later this year. It is fantastic that she and her husband, Ian Somerhalder, will both be working in Atlanta filming their TV series.

    You are very immature. Maybe at some point you will become a grown up.

  • Jean Morel

    “the movie thing just isn’t working out” doesn’t mean she isn’t making movies, it means she isn’t making big movies.

  • Edvard Stormrider
