The iconic Irene Adler will be played by Game of Thrones actress Natalie Dormer. Since I can hear your excited breathing from where I am, let me calm you down with MORE spoilers connected with the awaited reunion.
Elementary’s version of Sherlock’s true love works in art restoration, which is how Mr. Holmes will first meet her when he enlists her to consult on a case. “For the first time, we’re going to see actual moments from his past,” executive producer Rob Doherty says. “It’s really about how he came to meet and fall for Irene Adler. So we will tell the story of their courtship, and take the flashbacks all the way up to her demise in the U.K.” If a guy like Sherlock could fall for her, it makes us question whether she’s trustworthy. Hm.
