“Outlander” and “The Fall” actress Laura Donnelly has scored a lead role in Joss Whedon’s new HBO sci-fi epic series “The Nevers” which follows a group of Victorian-era women.
Said group find themselves with unusual abilities, relentless enemies and a mission that might change the world.
Donnelly will star as Amalia True, described as “the most reckless, impulsive, emotionally damaged hero of her time. A menace to stuffy Victorian society, she would die for the cause and kill for a drink.”
Whedon is co-writing the straight-to-series project with “Buffy” veterans Jane Espenson and Doug Petrie and will also serve as showrunner and director.
