Sherlock: Meet Irene Adler
Lara Pulver will be playing Irene Adler in Series 2 of Sherlock, according to Den of Geek.
Pulver will be familiar to cult TV fans from her most recent appearance as Claudine in True Blood. She also starred in BBC’s Robin Hood and is set to appear in the final series of Spooks.
Pulver will guest star in the first episode of Sherlock’s second series, A Scandal In Belgravia.
Irene Adler was an important character in the original Sherlock Holmes novel, ‘A Scandal in Bohemia,’ by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. She was one of the few characters to actually outwit Sherlock and earn his admiration. She has been portrayed as a potential romantic interest for Sherlock in some interpretations.
The opening episode has been described as a “twisted love story.” The original press release also hinted, “We might well be seeing the cold master of logic and reason unexpectedly falling. But in love? Or over a precipice? Who can tell?””
