Lincoln Lewis heads to Venice

Australian actor Lincoln Lewis has joined the long list of Aussie actors finding success in Us pilot season.

Lewis will play Shealy Carver, the son of Lisa Carver (Jennifer Beals) in Venice, pitched as a ‘Romeo & Juliet-esque’ style drama about the have-nots of California’s most seductive city, Venice.

The show is centred on two rival families, the Nances and the Carvers, and a forbidden and dangerous romance emerging between them as the families battle for control of Venice.

Lewis’ Shealy is bitterly upset that his brother Chris jeopardised the family by spending six years in prison, and is stewing with poorly suppressed anger when Chris is welcomed home with open arms.

“It’s a brilliant character. He’s dark and he’s bitter, and there are a lot of layers,” an excited Lewis said from LA yesterday, hours after finding out he had scored the role.
