Resident Evil’s Sienna Guillory Cast In ‘Luther’

Actress Sienna Guillory of ‘Resident Evil’ fame has been tapped to play Luther’s love interest in the BBC America’s returning crime drama. Entering its third season on the network, Luther follows the titular character John Luther (played by Idris Elba) and his job as a Detective Chief Inspector.

Guillory will play Mary, a woman who throws a wrench in Luther’s world. Her character is described as a vintage clothes shop worker who meets Luther in a “chance encounter.” Discussing her new role on the show, Guillory gushed over the atmosphere on set and the cast. “You realize why Luther is so good when you read Neil Cross’s scripts, and then you meet Idris and understand what ‘untamed’ means. There is no other set I’d rather be on, and I love the disastrous fun of being Mary Day, the right girl in the wrong place.” ‘Luther’ is currently in the production phase with new episodes set to air in 2013.

Sienna Guillory is best known for her work in the Resident franchise as Jill Valentine. She has also been seen in the 2006 TV mini-series ‘The Virgin Queen’, ‘The Oaks’, USA’s ‘Covert Affairs’, ‘CSI: Crime Scene Investigation’ in a guest role, ‘Criminal Minds’ and more.
