Sleepy Hollow Adds Nikki Reed as Series Regular Betsy Ross in Season 3

Sleepy Hollow is officially entering its Twilight years.

Nikki Reed, best known for portraying Rosalie Hale in the big-screen vampire saga, has been cast in the series regular role of Betsy Ross in Sleepy‘s upcoming third season, per The Hollywood Reporter.

As TVLine previously reported, Sleepy‘s Betsy is going to be a little different from the one you might have read about in history class. When casting the role of the American flag’s first seamstress — and Ichabod’s ex-girlfriend — producers were looking for the following:

Think more Angelina Jolie than frumpy Martha Stewart — a kickass Mrs. Smith to Ichabod Crane’s Mr. Smith. … [Betsy] is ruthless, smart and fearless, adjusting to blend in to whatever the situation demands, from demure handmaiden to honeypot to cutthroat spy.


Though most of Reed’s previous work has been on the big screen, she also recurred on The O.C. for several episodes in 2006.

Does she sound like a good fit for Betsy? Drop a comment with your thoughts on her casting, as well as your hopes for Season 3, below.
