As production on The Matrix 4 continues, we have another new casting announcement. Overnight it has been confirmed that Spartacus and Into The Badlands actress Ellen Hollman has been added to the Warner Bros. production.
Of course, there is no news as to who Hollman will be playing. Much of the circumstances surrounding this latest addition to the franchise are being kept heavily under wraps.
Hollman seemingly confirmed the news on her social media pages:

Cat’s out of the bag…or should I say white rabbit?#Matrix4 🐰 Life…when you boil it down, is really just a series of moments isn’t it? Some moments bring an echelon of elation, others a myriad of devastation. Like many of you, I am no stranger to either. Particularly in my chosen career path….yikes. You put up with a lot of sh*t over the course of 2 decades. Moments you’re told you’re “not enough” for an onslaught of reasons (age, height, credits, weight blah blah blah) and you have many who don’t believe in your abilities…some that even fire you. You also have others who are kind to your face but place the dagger carefully in your spine (perhaps because they lack one🤷🏻♀️) Regardless of those less than desirable moments, if you choose persevere, if you choose YOU, there is a possibility you can experience a moment like this. Yes, it’s merely a few words on a bright screen in the endless void that is the internet, but to me? This single moment justifies the climb, justifies the doubt, justifies why you: Never. Give.Up. Thank you to ALL who have given me their light and love, their blind encouragement and praise. @stephendunlevy @pmbrownla THANK YOU for all that you are and the @87elevenaction family for your irreplaceable knowledge! Now…into the MATRIX😎🖤 – – – #matrix #matrix4 #neo #trinity #morpheus #actress #drama #action #dreamjob #keanureeves #keanu Phot cred @bkheadshots @thewrap
