‘Lore’: Holland Roden Set As Lead In Amazon Horror Anthology Series
Roden will play Bridget Cleary, wife of Michael Cleary (Cathal Pendred). Living in Ireland in 1895, with fiery red hair, she is a dressmaker and an egg dealer who lives with her husband Michael in an Irish laborer’s cottage. An exceptional woman, she’s been liberated by the invention of the sewing machine and the refrigerated railway car, and she’s making a lot more money than her husband. When her tongue gets a little too pert for Michael’s liking, Bridget must prove the impossible: that she’s the true Bridget Cleary and not a fairy’s changeling. The episode is written by David Chiu and Patrick Wall with Thomas J. Wright directing.
