UK ‘Being Human’ Star Could Be New Wonder Woman?
The CW are wasting now time when it comes to casting their new take on Wonder Woman, which has been titled Amazon and focuses on Wonder Woman’s early years.
And it would seem that the network has zoned in on Scottish actress Amy Manson as one of the candidates to play the duel role of Diana Prince and Wonder Woman.
Manson is perhaps best known to genre fans for her role in the UK original version of Being Human in which she played vampire Daisy, who along with Mitchell (Aidan Turner) was responsible for the Box Tunnel Massacre. Manson has also appeared in Torchwood and Misfits. So she is a very familiar face to UK television viewers.
According to a report from BlastR Manson has already made it through the first two rounds of auditions for Amazon.
If she winds up winning the role Manson will play Diana. The strong-willed Amazonian princess, who eventually winds up being known as Wonder Woman. As to whether or not Amy Manson will make it all the way through and eventually win the role as yet remains to be seen, but if she wins it. I’m sure there’ll be a fair few wild parties in the Highlands to celebrate.
The script’s still in development, but The CW’s anxious to take the pilot to series.
