Kathryn Prescott has been tapped for a lead role in CBS’ The Dovekeepers, a four-hour miniseries from Mark Burnett and Roma Downey to air in 2015. The project is based on Alice Hoffman’s acclaimed historical novel about four extraordinary women whose lives intersect in a fight for survival at the siege of Masada. Prescott will play Aziza, a stunning teenage tomboy and expert archer who disguises herself in her brother’s armor to skillfully fight alongside the male warriors of Masada, even fooling Amram (Diego Boneta), her lover and fellow warrior. Prescott, repped by Gersh, Principal Entertainment, and Curtis Brown in the UK, stars on MTV’s Finding Carter, which recently was picked up for a second season.
