Kristen is having a breakout year in 2014. Not only did she star in a second season of the hit Netflix series, House of Cards, but she played Desdemona in a stage production of Othello with Blair Underwood, and has just landed a regular role on the ABC series The Whispers produced by Steven Spielberg's Amblin TV. No doubt Houdini will help bring her more success. She might even come to rival Janet Leigh as our most famous Bessie.
Houdini is directed by Uli Edel from a script by Nicholas Meyer. The 4-hour miniseries will air in two-parts on September 1 & 2 at 9pm ET/PT on HISTORY.
