TV: Aussie Actress Lands Recurring Role In ‘Hemlock Grove’

Australian actress Penelope Mitchell (pictured in the short “Meth to Madness”) has been cast in a regular role in Netflix’s new original series “Hemlock Grove,” from Eli Roth (Hostel, Cabin Fever) and Gaumont International TV, joining previously cast Famke Janssen, Bill Skarsgard and Landon Liboiron.

Written by Brian McGreevey and Lee Shipman based on McGreevy’s upcoming goth horror novel, “ ‘Hemlock Grove’ revolves around the murder of a young girl found close to the former Godfrey steel mill. The suspects in her killing include Peter (Liboiron), a 17-year-old Gypsy kid from the wrong side of the tracks, and Roman (Skarsgard), the arrogant Godfrey scion, whose sister Shelley is disturbingly deformed and whose mother, Olivia (Janssen), the beautiful and controlling grand dame of Hemlock Grove. In the end, Peter and Roman decide to find the killer themselves.
