‘Still Star-Crossed’: Anthony Head Joins Romeo & Juliet Sequel ABC Pilot

Buffy the Vampire Slayer alum Anthony Head is set as a regular in the ABC drama pilot Still Star-Crossed, from Shondaland and ABC Studios.

Written by Heather Mitchell based on the book by Melinda Taub, Still Star-Crossed is set in 16th century Verona and picks up where William Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet left off. It charts the treachery, palace intrigue and ill-fated romances of the Montagues and Capulets in the wake of the young lovers’ tragic fate.

The story centers on Rosaline (Lashana Lynch), a gorgeous, intelligent and headstrong Capulet and Juliet’s cousin who is ordered to marry Benvolio (Wade Briggs), a Montague. Head plays Lord Capulet. Kind and powerful, Lord Capulet is a thoughtful man with a sunny, jovial disposition. However, he will turn on you if you cross him. Grant Bowler was just cast as rival Lord Montague. 

Head recently co-starred on the Syfy series Dominion and just signed on for a recurring role on the upcoming Freeform series Guilt starring his daughter, Daisy Head. He is repped by APA and Gordon and French in the UK.
