Whilst at Birmingham Comic Con this weekend, I had the opportunity to sit in on a round table discussion with the ladies from Sleepy Hollow, including Nicole Beharie (Lt. Abbie Mills, the police partner of Tom Mison’s Ichabod Crane), Katia Winter (Katrina Crane – Ichabod’s wife, who’s stuck in purgatory), and Lyndie Greenwood (Jenny Mills, the kick-ass sister of Abbie).
Sleepy Hollow is a modern day retelling of the classic Washington Irving story of Ichabod Crane, and his encounter with the Headless Horseman. In this version however, it’s Ichabod who beheads the horseman, only to be ‘killed’ in the process. Skip forward to modern day, and Crane awakes to find himself buried in a cave, a man out of time… After befriending Lt. Abbie Mills, the pair discover they are prophesied to be the ‘two witnesses’ to the Apocalypse. Deciding that’s probably not the best job in the world, the duo battle to quash the oncoming evil, and prevent the end of days.
Sleepy Hollow has recently finished airing on Universal in the UK, and is due back for a 2nd season in the Autumn.
