Actress Chloe Sevigny will play an Irish transgender assassin in a British miniseries, reports IndieWire.
Hit and Miss revolves around a transgender hit man who suddenly finds out that in the previous life she has fathered several children.
The miniseries will be produced for the U.K.'s Sky Atlantic, with filming planned for this summer. Sevigny tells Blackbook magazine that she will play a pre-op male-to-female. "It's very realistic," she says. "It's being created by a lot of the people who were involved in the original Skins, so it's going to be very edgy."
Sevigny previously starred in Boys Don't Cry, the Academy Award-winning 1999 film about murdered transgender man Brandon Teena.
