OPHELIA LOVIBOND SET TO RECUR ON "ELEMENTARY" AS SHERLOCK HOLMES' NEW PROTÉGÉ
LOS ANGELES - July 10, 2014 - Ophelia Lovibond is set to recur on ELEMENTARY in the series' upcoming third season as famed detective Sherlock Holmes' new protégé, Kitty Winter. Her character will first appear during the drama's season premiere, Thursday, Oct. 30 (10:01-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. The role marks Lovibond's U.S. television debut.
Kitty Winter is Sherlock's (Jonny Lee Miller) new apprentice in New York who immediately becomes rivals with her predecessor, Joan Watson (Lucy Liu). Kitty's reasons for undertaking Holmes' partnership are nebulous, and her new arrangement with Sherlock will have ongoing repercussions for his relationship with Joan.
