Let the Right One In is an eerie drama about Henry, a young boy, long tormented by his classmates, who finds solace in a friendship with a charismatic vampire, Eli (Kristine Froseth), who appears to be near his age. Thin and pale, Eli’s actual age is unknown. Lonely and friendless (for obvious reasons), Eli lands in an apartment building in Vermont, and soon begins a strange friendship with Henry, an equally lonely 16-year-old boy who has no idea what kind of creature he’s dealing with.

Teen Wolf creator Davis wrote the script and serves as executive producer with Marty Adelstein and Becky Clements of Tomorrow Studios and Simon Oakes of Hammer Films. The pilot is being produced by Tomorrow Studios in association with Turner’s Studio T.

Lyn is repped by UTA and Independent Talent.
