Sophia Myles has been tapped as the female lead in CBS’ upcoming drama “Moonlight”.
“Moonlight,” from Warner Bros. TV and Silver Pictures, centers on a private investigator (Alex O’Laughlin) who is a vampire and struggles with the repercussions of immortality, vampire adversaries and his love for a mortal. Myles will play his love interest, Beth Turner, a beautiful, ambitious Internet investigative reporter who is always on the hunt for the big story. Myles replaces Shannon Lucio, who played the part — then a TV reporter — in the pilot presentation.
Myles, who has appeared in such films as “Underworld: Evolution” and “Tristan + Isolde,” next appears in the Weinstein Co.’s “Outlander.” She is repped by ICM and Christian Hodell of U.K.’s Hamilton Hodell.
