Heather Lind Lands Lead in AMC Pilot ‘Turn’


Deadline reports actress Heather Lind has been cast as the lead in the AMC pilot Turn.


Heather Lind, who has recurred on HBO’s Boardwalk Empire, has landed the female lead in another period drama project, AMC pilot Turn. Written by Craig Silverstein based on Alexander Rose’s bookWashington’s Spies and directed by Rupert Wyatt, Turn is set in the summer of 1778 and tells the story of New York farmer Abe Woodhull (Jamie Bell), who bands together with a group of childhood friends to form The Culper Ring, an unlikely group of spies who turn the tide in America’s fight for independence. Lind plays Anna Strong, the beautiful wife of the local tavern owner who is Abe’s first love, and clearly there is still a palpable tension between the two.
