Nikki Reed attends the launch of Bonnie Rose whiskey

Nikki Reed is getting ready to step into some historical shoes on “Sleepy Hollow’s” third season. The actress will be tackling the role of seamstress Betsy Ross on the FOX series, The Hollywood Reporter revealed.

Reed’s “Sleepy Hollow” version of Ross 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.”

Ichabod (Tom Mison) noted numerous times that Ross was a former lover of his, and considering his wife Katrina’s death in the Season 2 finale, this arrival could open the door for a new love interest for him.



Reed is best known for her portrayal of vampire Rosalie Hale in the “Twilight” series, as well as being the co-writer and one of the stars of the 2003 film “Thirteen.”
