As well as filming Netflix's Alias Grace, Anna Paquin has scored the lead role in Canadian crime drama, Bellevue.
The oscar-winning actress is set to star as a major character in the upcoming eight-part detective drama. Best known for her roles in True Blood and the X-Men franchise, Anna will play a detective named Annie Ryder who investigates the disappearance of a transgender teen. Allen Leech (Tom Branson from Downton Abbey) will also be starring as Anna's ex.
"Bellevue is a bold addition to CBC's drama slate," said Sally Catto, programming manager of CBC Television. "This series is a prime example of the distinct, premium storytelling we strive to deliver our audiences, anchored by extraordinary talent both behind and on the screen."
Bellevue begins filming September 19 in Montreal and will air in the winter season of 2017.
