Supergirl Laura Vandervoort to Star in Werewolf Series BITTEN
Laura Vandervoort, best known as Supergirl on Smallville and the Visitor Lisa on "V", has signed on to portray a werewolf in Canada's Space Channel's new series, Bitten, based on the Women of the Otherworld book series by Kelley Armstrong.
On the 13-episode series, to be produced by J.B. Sugar (The Collector, jpod), Vandervoort is cast as Elena Michaels. Says The Hollywood Reporter, "Her lead character, having grown up as part of a werewolf pack, lives in Toronto as a photographer and finds her world beginning to crumble as she is caught between two worlds and two loves."
"Laura has complexity and strength, and is also very relatable, making her the perfect fit for a character struggling to maintain the life she desires, while fighting against who she really is, and for those she loves," said Corrie Coe, senior vp of independent production at Space-parent Bell Media.
Production is expected to begin next month.
