Frances O'Connor has been cast as Nina Locke in Hulu's Locke & Key pilot, reports Deadline. O'Connor is the first confirmed casting in this second attempt at a TV series for this IDW title by Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez.
“We are thrilled to have the multidimensional talents of France O’Connor to breath color and life into this pivotal character in our series, and along with a stellar production team in place, we have no doubt that we will be able to bring Joe Hill’s creative vision to the small screen,” said IDW Entertainment's David Ozer.
Hill is acting as producer and the pilot's screenwriter, joined by showunner Carlton Cuse and pilot director Andy Muschietti.
O'Connor recently starred in The Conjuring 2, and also appeared in the films Mansfield Park, A.I. Artificial Intelligence, and The Missing.
