Nicole Beharie at Dragon Con is Just What Sleepy Hollow Fans Needed
Now that Fox’s hit sci-fi drama is taping in Atlanta, it seems only right the show’s lead characters, Abbie Mills and Ichabod Crane, would be in attendance for the yearly spectacle.
Like Comic Con, Dragon Con is a huge event and great opportunity for actors to interact with their fans, and in the case of Sleepy Hollow, scoop up some much needed positive press.
As you all know, the show went through a restructuring phase last season that saw the removal of most of the original cast, including Orlando Jones (Frank Irving) Katia Winter (Katrina Crane) and John Noble (War/Henry/Jeremy).
Since then, several new cast members have been added, most notably Lance Gross who appeared in the 2011 film The Last Fall alongside Nicole.
Sleepy Hollow is set to return for its third season on October 1 and is now airing at 9pm on Thursday nights, a time slot that puts it in direct competition with ABC’s Scandal and CBS’s Blacklist.
Will the show survive? We hope so. We love Nicole.
Oh yeah, here is some more interesting Sleepy Hollow news for ya. According to a recent Nielsen study, the show’s fans (Sleepyheads) are some of the most active and loyal on social media.
Another interesting fact: of the top five shows with the most active and loyal fan bases, three were led by black women (Scandal, Empire and How to Get Away with Murder).
