The Hollywood Reporter brings word this morning that “True Blood” star Deborah Ann Woll has joined the cast of “Marvel’s Daredevil” in a significant role, that of Nelson & Murdock secretary and love interest Karen Page!
Woll joins a cast that includes Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock, aka Daredevil, Vincent D’Onofrio as Kingpin, Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson, Peter Shinkoda as Hachiro and Rosario Dawson in an unspecified role.
“Marvels Daredevil” follows the journey of Matt Murdock, who was blinded as a young boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, now fighting against injustice by day as a lawyer, and by night as the super hero Daredevil in modern day Hell’s Kitchen, New York City.
Marvel’s first original series on Netflix is executive produced by series showrunner Steven S. DeKnight (“Spartacus,” “Buffy: The Vampire Slayer”) and Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods, “Buffy The Vampire Slayer”), who is writing the first two episodes of the series along with Marvel TV’s Jeph Loeb (“Marvels Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” “Smallville”).
“Marvels Daredevil” is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios for Netflix.
