With True Blood ending after this season, its actors are looking for new gigs. Deborah Ann Woll, who plays vampire Jessica on the HBO show, has found hers over at Netflix.

Variety reports that the actress has joined the Netflix original Marvel’s Daredevil series – not just cast, but tapped as the female lead. She’ll play the blind hero’s love interest, Karen Page.

Back in May, the series found its lead in Charlie Cox, probably best known for his work on Boardwalk Empire. Soon after, Vincent D’Onofrio signed on to play Wilson Fisk, better known as Kingpin.

Rosario Dawson, Elden Henson and Peter Shinkoda have also signed on as series regulars.

Netflix and Disney announced a deal that would bring the Marvel Universe Netflix’s original series lineup last November. W soon learned that there would be numerous series to come from that deal, including Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, and Luke Cage. Daredevil will be the first series to premiere. All of those shows will eventually culminate in an “epic” miniseries event, The Defenders.

Daredevil will premiere some time in 2015 with 13 episodes.
