Lara Pulver joins SHERLOCK as Irene Adler

Lara Pulver has joined the cast of Sherlock for series 2, which is currently filming. She will be playing Irene Adler, the famous "love-interest" of Sherlock Holmes, for the episode "A Scandal In Belgravia".

This is great news. I've been a fan of Pulver since her wonderful Disney villain-esque turn in Robin Hood a few years ago, and hated watching her get wasted in True Blood as Sookie's fairy godmother. Adler will undoubtedly be a much juicier role for her, full of sparkling dialogue. I hope she has good chemistry with Benedict Cumberbatch's sleuth, too. Incidentally, Pulver's also joined Spooks for its tenth series, so her star's clearly on the rise.

I guess this kills the internet rumour that Jekyll's Michelle Ryan was being lined up by co-creator Steven Moffat as Irene Adler! What do you make of Pulver's casting? A great choice, or are you concerned?

SHERLOCK series 2 returns in early-2012 on BBC1 with three new 90-minute episodes: "A Scandal In Belgravia", "The Hounds Of Baskerville" and "The Reichenbach Fall".
