Mia Maestro Joins The Cast Of Guillermo Del Toro's THE STRAIN

House of Cards star Corey Stoll recently signed up to play 'Dr. Ephraim Goodweather' in Guillermo del Toro and Carlton Cuse's upcoming pilot for FX, and now The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn's Mia Maestro has been cast opposite him in the lead female role. Read on for details!


Deadline reports that Mia Maestro has joined the cast of The Strain as, "Dr. Nora Martinez, who works so closely with Ephraim Goodweather, they finish each other’s sentences and stumble into an affair. A brilliant biochemist, Martinez cares more about people than the diseases that threaten them, but she will soon be forced to embrace a new identity as a ruthless warrior." The actress-singer is perhaps best known for starring in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, but is no stranger to television after roles in the likes of Person of Interest and White Collar. She will star opposite Corey Stoll as 'Dr. Ephraim Goodweather'. The series - which is based on Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan's vampire novel trilogy - has a pilot order (which will be helmed by the Pacific Rim director) but is being eyed for a full 13-episode pickup according to the site.
