Sleepy Hollow’s Ross is described as sexy with an unsuspecting physical prowess. She’s the famous seamstress known and loved for sewing the nation’s first flag by day, but by night she’s a dynamic colonial insider, a secret operative within George Washington‘s mysterious ring of spies.

 

 

 

“We are all very excited to welcome Nikki Reed into the world of Sleepy Hollow,” co-creator/EP Len Wiseman said.  “Nikki’s the perfect choice to bring a smart and sexy edge to our show’s twisted version of American icon, Betsy Ross.”

 

 

The casting comes after Ichabod (Tom Mison) noted in seasons one and two that Ross was a former flame.

 

 

THR first reported the news.
