Americana, the drama pilot over at ABC that has already filled two of its starring roles, can add a vampire to the roster. But she’s a really nice vampire. She’ll even go by the same name as her role in the Twilight franchise. Ashley Greene, who plays Bella-loving sister to Edward Cullen, Alice, in the films, will once again play a character named Alice.
The Hollywood Reporter reports that Greene has signed on for the pilot to play the role that has been part of every description of the project to date. The drama is about a venerable family fashion house run by patriarch Robert Soulter (Anthony LaPaglia has been tapped for the role) that finds its world shaken by the arrival of a new designer. Said designer will be played by Ashley Greene. Also recently cast as one of Soulter’s fashionista daughters is Emilie de Ravin of Lost fame. Natalie Mendoza and Ken Olin have also nabbed roles in the pilot. Philip Noyce of Revenge will be directing.
Although she’s best known for her role as the super sweet vampire in the Twilight saga, Greene has been moving into television with a recurring role on ABC’s Pan Am. She’s also completed filming on the upcoming movie The Apparition. With the final chapter in the Twilight saga hitting theaters in November, soon Greene – and the rest of us – will be free of Bella and Edward. Americana might just be the new saga she becomes a part of instead.
