Rebecca Breeds, Lincoln Younes land US roles

Aussies casts stateside in Silence of the Lambs & Lost Boys adaptations.

Two former Home & Away regulars have been cast in US roles.

Rebecca Breeds has landed the coveted role of Clarice Starling in a Silence of the Lambs series sequel for CBS.

The role was created by Jodie Foster in the hit thriller in 1991.

Set in 1993, one year after the events of the film, Clarice will explore the untold personal story of its title character as she returns to work pursuing serial murderers and sexual predators while navigating Washington, D.C. politics. Clarice is described as “brilliant and vulnerable,” whose bravery gives her “an inner light that draws monsters and madmen to her.

Breeds had roles in Blue Water High and Home & Away before US roles in We Are Men, The Originals, Pretty Little Liars, Notorious and The Code.

Meanwhile Lincoln Younes has been cast as Benjamin, the charismatic leader of the gang of vampires in a small screen adaptation of 1987 feature, The Lost Boys. The role was originally played by Kiefer Sutherland.

In this version, a mother and her sons move to the seaside town where she grew up. They discover there’s a sinister reason the local cool kids sleep all day, party all night, never grow up and never get old. Family bonds are tested as the brothers find themselves on opposite sides of a mythological struggle.

Younes most recently starred in Grand Hotel, but Aussie credits include Home and Away, Tangle, and Hiding.

  1. No Hannibal Lecter?-also much more expensive to do a period recreation as 1993 is nearly 30 years ago-sets, props, costumes, cars etc etc-and very big shoes to fill for the new Clarice!
