“True Blood” star Deborah Ann Woll has joined the cast of the upcoming Marvel and Netflix series “Daredevil.” According to The Hollywood Reporter, Woll will play Karen Page, the lady love of titular character Matt Murdock.
Page is the longest-running love interest for Daredevil. The character was created by Stan Lee and first appeared in the very first issue of Daredevil in April 1964. She’s the secretary at the law firm of Nelson & Murdock who eventually learns of his secret life as a superhero. She was portrayed by Ellen Pompeo in the 2003 Ben Affleck film, though the role was only a minor one.
Murdock/Daredevil, the the blind lawyer by day and crime-fighting hero by night, will be played by “Boardwalk Empire’s” Charlie Cox. Elden Henson will play Franklin “Foggy” Nelson, Matt Murdock’s friend and legal partner; Rosario Dawson in a mysterious role; and Vincent D’Onofrio as the notorious villain “The Kingpin.”
Netflix picked up the 13-episode Daredevil — along with Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Luke Cage, as well as miniseries The Defenders — in a massive pact with Marvel. Daredevil is the first series out of the pack, debuting in 2015. It is produced by Marvel Television and ABC Studios.
