"Gotham's" Cory Michael Smith Savors the Arrival of the Riddler
Life Unexpected actress Ksenia Solo has been cast as the manipulative entity Dodge in the pilot for Locke & Key, Fox’s adaptation of the acclaimed horror comic by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez, NiceGirlsTV reports.
Rodriguez, who visited the series’ Pittsburgh set last week, confirmed the casting, writing on Twitter: “… Ksenia Solo, AWESOME as Dodge in the Locke & Key pilot. Really!”
Debuting in 2008 from IDW Publishing, Locke & Key centers on Nina Locke (Miranda Otto) and her three children Tyler (Jesse McCartney), Kinsey (Sarah Bolger) and Bode (Skylar Gaertner) who, after the murder of Nina’s husband Rendell, return to Keyhouse, the family home in Lovecraft, Massachusetts. There they encounter Dodge, and numerous doors that can transport the mansion’s residents to other worlds or bestow them with supernatural abilities. Nick Stahl joined the cast last month as Rendell’s younger brother Duncan Locke.
The 23-year-old Solo, who had a minor role in Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan, stars in the Canadian supernatural crime drama Lost Girl. She also recently appeared in an episode of Nikita.
Locke & Key is produced by Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (Star Trek, Fringe) through their first-look deal with DreamWorks TV. Mark Romanek (Never Let Me Go) is directing the pilot from a script by showrunner Josh Friedman ( The Black Dahlia, Terminator: The Sarah Conner Chronicles).
