Fernanda Andrade is letting the right role in…
The 37-year-old Brazilian actress and model will appear in the new Showtime series Let The Right One In in a recurring role.
Andrade, known for her work in Narcos: Mexico and Songs of Anarchy, will play Elizabeth, the spirited wife of Mark (Demián Bichir) and devoted mother of Eleanor (Madison Taylor Baez). Elizabeth’s love for her family motivates her to go to any length to protect them.
The roles has been recast. Andrade replaces Susan Santiago, who played the role in the pilot.
The vampire drama series is inspired by the bestselling 2004 novel by John Ajvide Lindqvist and its 2008 Swedish film adaptation. It’s described as an exploration of human frailty, strength, and compassion through an elevated genre lens.
It centers on Mark and his daughter Eleanor, whose lives were changed forever 10 years earlier when she was turned into a vampire. Locked in at age 12, perhaps forever, Eleanor lives a closed-in life, able to go out only at night, while her father does his best to provide her with the human blood she needs to stay alive.
Let the Right One In is produced by Tomorrow Studios. Bichir will serve as a producer on the series.
Andrade most recently appeared in Fox’s NeXt in the role of Shea Salazar. She also has credits in big and small screen projects including Sons of Anarchy, Scorpion, NCIS: Los Angeles, and Narcos: Mexico.
