Buffy Vet Anthony Stewart Head Joins Freeform Murder Mystery Guilt

Guilt just became a family affair.

Anthony Stewart Head (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) has been cast opposite daughter Daisy Head (The Syndicate) on Freeform’s forthcoming soap, TVLine has learned.

The murder mystery finds Grace Atwood (Head), a young American women, accused of viciously murdering her BFF while in London. The Buffy vet will assume the recurring role of James Lahue, Grace’s charming stepfather who just so happens to have ties to the victim.

Vinyl‘s Emily Tremaine also co-stars as Grace’s sister Natalie who teams up with lawyer Stan Gutterie (Titanic‘s Billy Zane) to scour all levels of London society — from deviant sex clubs to the Royal family — in search of the truth.

Cristian Solimeno (Rush), Naomi Ryan (Guardians of the Galaxy), Kevin Ryan (Copper), Zachary Fall (Crossing Lines), Simona Brown (The Casual Vacancy) and newcomer Sam Cassidy round out the cast.
