Just as Ichabod says goodbye to one former flame, another joins the mix.

Nikki Reed (Twilight) has been cast as new Sleepy Hollow regular Betsy Ross, EW has confirmed. As first announced by The Hollywood ReporterRoss — remembered as the seamstress behind the nation’s first flag — moonlights as a secret operative for George Washington. Her romantic history with Ichabod (Tom Mison) is less of a secret.

“We are all very excited to welcome Nikki Reed into the world of Sleepy Hollow,” co-creator/EP Len Wiseman told THR. “Nikki’s the perfect choice to bring a smart and sexy edge to our show’s twisted version of American icon, Betsy Ross.” 

The announcement bulks up the core Sleepy Hollow cast, which lost three regulars at the end of season 2.
