Let the Right One In TV series casts Kristine Froseth
19-year-old Kristine Froseth (Rebel in the Rye) has been cast as the female lead in TNT‘s pilot for the Let the Right One In TV series, based on the best-selling novel by Swedish author John Ajvide Lindqvist. Jeff Davis (“Criminal Minds,” “Teen Wolf”) wrote the script for the pilot and serves as executive producer.
Let the Right One In is an eerie drama about a young boy named Henry, long tormented by his classmates, who finds solace in a friendship with a charismatic female vampire named Eli (Kristine Froseth) who appears to be near his age. The vampire settles into the boy’s small Vermont town with her mysterious caretaker, just as a series of bizarre murders begins attracting the attention of law enforcement.
Also executive producing are Marty Adelstein (“Aquarius,” “Prison Break,” “Teen Wolf”) and Becky Clements (“Aquarius,” “Last Man Standing”) of Tomorrow Studios and Simon Oakes (Women in Black, Let Me In) of Hammer Films. Carl Molinder, who produced the original screenplay, and Alex Brunner (Dark Places) also serve as executive producers. The pilot is being produced by Tomorrow Studios in association with Turner’s Studio T, the in-house studio that owns and produces original series for TNT and TBS.
Lindqvist’s debut novel was an instant bestseller in Sweden. He adapted his book into a screenplay for the acclaimed 2008 Swedish film of the same name, earning numerous international awards. TNT’s pilot will draw from the original source material.
