The very lovely Ophelia Lovibond, who starred in the Nick Frost comedy/drama Mr Sloane and will next be seen in Guardians of the Galaxy, has joined the cast of Elementary.
Variety are reporting that the British actress will be seen in Season 3 as Kitty Winter, Sherlock’s protégé and a rival to Lucy Liu’s Joan.
“While it is still unknown why she teams up with the detective, their new partnership will have ongoing repercussions for his relationship with Joan. The second series finale saw Sherlock take a job back in the UK with MI6 after Watson moved out of his house, making it likely that he and Kitty will first encounter one another on this side of the pond.”
Series three of Elementary begins in America on 30 October and is shown in the UK on Sky Atlantic.
