Get ready for some sexual tension as British actress Ophelia Lovibond has been announced as the actor who will play Kitty Winter, the protege to Jonny Lee Miller's Sherlock Holmes in the television show "Elementary". Her character upon arrival becomes the rival of Joan Watson, played by Lucy Liu and the relationship will impact the relationship of Joan and Sherlock Holmes.
Ophelia Lovibond is considered one of the up and coming English stars as she recently played a starring role in the romantic-comedy television series "Mr. Sloane" and earned much attention for an interview in which she described her audition tape that won her the role.
The actress went back to the 1960s as she wore "a blue flower-power dress, stop the bomb earrings, made her hair huge and put on a large amount of make up." When Bob Weide, the director of the show saw her on video her immediately stated that she was perfect for his show as she conveyed a Diane Keaton image.
2014 has been an exceptional year for the talented actress as she has graced the television screen in the BBC comedy spoof "Inside No. 9" with Hugh Bonneville and has the film "Guardians of the Galaxy" on the big screen and "Man Up" scheduled for release later in 2014.
Now her exposure to US audiences is going to become even greater with her booking of a recurring role on "Elementary", a show with a very loyal audience and recipient of consistently high ratings.
Her attractive looks and superior acting range have fans and entertainment observers thinking that once US audiences get to see her opposite Jonny Lee Miller in "Elementary" she is going to become a favourite actress of many fans and will have filmmakers thinking about her in the same way Bob Weide describes her, a young Diane Keaton.
