'True Blood' Actress Cast as Karen Page in 'Daredevil' Netflix Show

Come see who landed the role!

The man without fear's upcoming show continues to grow! It was announced earlier today that True Blood's Deborah Ann Woll will join the cast of the Marvel Netflix series. According to EW, she'll be the female lead, Karen Page. Page was originally Matt Murdock's secretary and the two eventually fell in love. In true comic book fashion, the relationship unfortunately didn't have a happy ending. Just to be safe, we'll avoid the details.

Woll will join Charlie Cox (Daredevil), Vincent D'Onofrio (Kingpin), Elden Henson (Foggy Nelson), and Rosario Dawson. The 13-episode series will premiere on Netflix in 2015. So, are you looking forward to Marvel's first Netflix show, Viners? Share your thoughts below!

For a second I thought it was Sookie and almost died of a heart attack lol

She was my ABSOLUTE #1 choice for poison ivy, and I really really would have liked her as Mera also. So I'm faintly sad she appears to be just playing a girlfriend character. But I am thankful she is playing on something I will certainly be watching :)

Sony missed out, this could have been Mary Jane

Solid casting.

Is this show canon to the movies? That includes Agents of Shield....

Posted by iceslick

@batmansfear007: Yes, this show is canon to the movies as well. All the Marvel shows on Netflix including Daredevil, Iron Fist, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones and The Defenders will be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

@iceslick: Wow, that's a big move if yah ask me, but in a weird way I'm happy. I can only imagine the fangasm we'll get when Avengers 3 comes out. Haha

Nice. She is hot! AND the funny thing is her husband is also blind. MIND BLOWN! He looks so much like MATT!

I absolutely LOVE Deborah Ann! I kept telling myself if they killed her off in True Blood I'd stop watching. Now with the last season I don't have to and I was worried about getting my fix of her. With this announcement, I don't have to! This is so much win!

Matt Murdock slept on the bed, naked. Karen Page was on top of him, waiting to strip her clothes off. Matt sensed that she wanted to do it. He was tired, fighting criminals all night long. It was a long night for him, one man, dressed in the red, devilish costume. That previous night, he saved Karen, from being beaten up by low-life druggies. It was a good thing that Matt saved her in time.

"Oh, Matt," Karen said, "You want to do it?"

"Yeah...Karen," Matt doesn't know how to express his hard feelings for her. He had other thoughts on mind, trying to put the Kingpin down for good. Kingpin was a notorious and powerful criminal, whom people have known for decades. Matt wasn't sure if he can handle the big boss in town. Now, he had to figure out, how to defeat the Kingpin's dangerous and unstoppable assassin...Bullseye.

Matt sensed the touch of Karen, her eyes, the blonde hair, the smell of her body perfume, and her wonderful body, waiting to touch his naked body. He can still tell, she wanted to have $ex with the blind man. The Man Without Fear.

"You dare me?" Karen asked. She figured that Matt would say yes, since he had a very rough night.

"Yeah, I dare you," Matt answered.

"Oh...Matt," Karen said with a smile. "You're such a devil." She began to strip her clothes off. She threw the shirt away on the floor, besides Matt's bed. She pulled down her pants, then her underwear. She also threw them away on the floor. She leaned towards the blind superhero, kissed his lips.

It was the lovely, daring and devilish night for the Daredevil.

@madeinbangladesh: So you're saying it shouldn't be hard for her to get into character? LOL

Posted by MadeinBangladesh

@darkseid_prime: No, I wasn't saying that. It blew my mind that her Husband is also Blind like Daredevil and he looked exactly like Matt.

Edited by Ms-Lola

My first thought reading the title of this thread was for this actor and yay, it is her. I hope they don't have her become blonde to match the character.

Deciding to go with her makes me think Karen will be the main love for Matt in this series and Rosario will be the temptation (Echo). I am getting happier and happier with these new additions.
