True Blood star Deborah Ann Woll has been cast as Daredevil's love interest in a new TV series based on the comic book superhero's adventures. Woll will portray Karen Page in the upcoming Marvel series, which will also feature Rosario Dawson and Vincent D'Onofrio. Page was previously played by Ellen Pompeo on the big screen in 2003, opposite Ben Affleck's Daredevil. The character was created by Stan Lee and made her debut in comic book form in 1964. The new TV series will debut on Netflix next year (15). Ironically, just like her new TV boyfriend Matt Murdock/Daredevil, Woll's real-life beau is battling blindness - E.J. Scott was diagnosed with choroideremia - a rare genetic disease that causes blindness - just after the couple fell in love.
