The next Aussie cast in a US pilot is Peta Sergeant, best known for her work on Foxtel’s Satisfaction.
The Hollywood Reporter notes Sergeant will play Gaia Woods in The Selection, described as an epic romance set 300 years in the future. It will produced by Elizabeth Craft and Sarah Fain (The Vampire Diaries).
The Warner Bros. TV project sees a poor young woman chosen by lottery to participate in a competition to become the next queen of a war-torn nation at a crossroads.
Sergeant’s character is described as ‘a rebel leader who is working to overthrow the monarchy.’
The cast also includes Ethan Peck, Aimee Teegarden and Sean Patrick Thomas.
