Role of Dash and Freya Cast in WITCHES OF EAST END
The role of Dash Gardiner and Freya Beauchamp have been cast in Lifetime's adaptation of Witches of East End.
Lifetime has cast Patrick Heusinger as the male lead in the drama pilot Witches of East End.
Heusinger will play Dash Gardiner, the wealthy fiancé of Freya Beauchamp. You may recognize Heusinger from his other small screen roles including spots on Gossip Girl and Royal Pains.
Playing Freya will be Jenna Dewan-Tatum.
According to TV Line, the Step Up star's character will be just like her literary counterpart, described as, "a sexy and fearless former wild child, who settles down after becoming engaged to Dash Gardiner, a rich philanthropist." Dewan joins Julia Ormond, who was cast as Freya's mother, Joanna.
Witches of East End (which is from 20th Century Fox TV's Fox 21 banner) centers on the adventures of a mother and her two adult daughters, both of whom unknowingly are their family's next generation of witches. The young women lead seemingly quiet, uneventful modern day lives in Long Island's secluded seaside town of North Hampton. When one of the daughters (Freya) becomes engaged to a young, wealthy newcomer, a series of events forces her mother to admit to her daughters they are, in fact, powerful and immortal witches.
Maggie Friedman penned the pilot and will executive produce the project along with Erwin Stoff of 3 Arts Entertainment. The hour-long pilot is expected to air later this year.
