Rising Aussie actress lands US role

Australian actress Freya Tingley (Cloudstreet, Beneath The Waves) has been cast as a regular in Hemlock Grove, a US series to be produced for streaming provider Netflix.

Written by Brian McGreevey and Lee Shipman, Hemlock Grove revolves around the murder of a young girl found close to the former Godfrey steel mill.

The cast includes Famke Janssen, Bill Skarsgard and Landon Liboiran

The suspects in her killing include Peter (Liboiron), a 17-year-old Gypsy kid from the wrong side of the tracks, and Roman (Skarsgard), the arrogant Godfrey scion, whose sister Shelley is disturbingly deformed and whose mother, Olivia (Janssen), is the beautiful and controlling grand dame of Hemlock Grove.

Tingley, will play Christina Wendall, a precocious and friendly, self-dubbed novelist who interviews Peter after catching him swimming in her grandfather’s pond.
