More Houdini miniseries cast revealed

"Sylvia" sans beard.
IMDb has revealed more cast and characters from HISTORY's Houdini miniseries. The site now shows Gyula Mesterházy as Kaiser Wilhelm II; Simon Nader is Tsar Nicholas Romanov II; and English actress Caroline Boulton as "Sylvia The Bearded Lady."

While the two Royals are historical figures, Sylvia The Bearded Lady is a fictional creation (although Houdini certainly knew a bearded lady or two in his life). It's unknown how much she'll feature in the biopic, but the actress appears to have shot for a number of days in Budapest and also attended the wrap party in December.

Caroline Boulton can currently be seen in NBCs Dracula TV series. She'll also appear in the upcoming Sky Television film about the life of James Bond creator, Ian Fleming: The Man Who Would Be Bond.

Houdini stars Adrien Brody as Houdini and Kristen Connolly as Bess. The 4-hour miniseries is directed by Uli Edel from a script by Nicholas Meyer. It will air over the course of two nights on HISTORY later this year.
