Deadline report that Bille Piper is joining the likes of Josh Hartnett, Timothy Dalton, Eva Green, Reeve Carney, Rory Kinnear and Harry Treadaway in the cast of Penny Dreadful for Showtime. Her character is not named (so we don't know if she'll be playing an established horror icon) but apparently she'll appear as "an Irish immigrant trying to escape her dark past".

The first episode will be helmed by The Orphanage director Juan Antonio Bayona.
