Fox’s Sleepy Hollow is getting another infusion of British talent: EW has learned exclusively that Yorkshire native Max Brown has been cast in a pivotal role.
Brown may be best known for playing medical examiner Evan Marks on The CW’s Beauty and the Beast and Edward Seymour, brother of King Henry VIII’s third wife Jane, on Showtime’s The Tudors. (He was also set to star as a thief named Ambrose in Hieroglyph, Fox’s splashy Ancient Egypt-set series—which was canceled before it even had a chance to premiere.) On Sleepy Hollow, Fox says he’ll portray “a powerful and mysterious new ally known, at first, only as Orion—a charismatic soldier who possesses a game changing weapon.”
Brown’s first episode is slated to air after Sleepy returns from its winter hiatus in January. The drama airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET on Fox.
