Space And Time Actress Cast In CW Pilot The Selection

British actress Sarah Winter (who we’ll soon see in the early years of Doctor Who drama An Adventure In Space And Time), has nabbed a leading role in The CW pilot The Selection.

Sounding like a small screen version of The Hunger Games,The Selection has been developed by Elizabeth Craft and Sarah Fain (Dollhouse, The Vampire Diaries). It’s set 300 years in the future and concerns a working class woman (Israeli actress Yael Grobglas) who is reluctantly chosen by lottery to participate in a competition for the hand of a prince (Michael Malarkey) and thus become the nation’s next queen. According to TVLine, Winter will play Ashley Brovillette, a naïve young woman thrilled to be among the Selection’s participants.

The show also recently added Anthony Head to its cast; he’ll be playing a king, because he’s good at kings.

In An Adventure In Space And Time Winter is playing Delia Derbyshire, the pioneering electronic musician who arranged Doctor Who’s original theme tune.
