Outlander’s Laura Donnelly to Star in The Nevers from Joss Whedon


Laura Donnelly (Outlander) is set to star in the upcoming HBO drama The Nevers, according to Deadline. The series comes to us from Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator Joss Whedon. The Never is co-written by Whedon, Jane Espenson (Once Upon a Time, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and Doug Petrie (Buffy the Vampire Slayer). Whedon will executive produce with Espenson, Petrie and Bernie Caulfield as well as acting as showrunner.

The series is described as, “an epic science fiction drama about a gang of Victorian women who find themselves with unusual abilities, relentless enemies, and a mission that might change the world.” Donnelly will play Amalia True, “the most reckless, impulsive, emotionally damaged hero of her time. A menace to stuffy Victorian society, she would die for the cause and kill for a drink.”

“Laura Donnelly has charisma, wisdom and an anarchic precision that not only captures Amalia but defines her,” said Whedon. “She’s fierce and she’s funny – and I need both for the journey ahead.”

Laura Donnelly is known for playing the role of Jenny in the popular Starz series Outlander. She’s also been seen in Beowulf: Return to the ShieldlandsBritannia and Missing. She will next be seen in the upcoming film Tolkien.
