"Finding Carter" actress Kathryn Prescott is joining a CBS mini-series "The Dovekeepers," from Mark Burnett and Roma Downey.
The historical period piece is based off of Alice Hoffman's novel, which revolves around the true events at Masada in 70 C.E. After the Jewish population was forced out of their home in Jerusalem by the Romans, 900 of them were ensconced in a fortress at Masada, a mountain in the Judean desert.
Prescott will play one of the four female protagonists that arrive at Masada determined to survive the siege of Roman armies. Prescott's character, Aziza, is a teenaged tomboy and expert archer who disguises herself in her brother's armor to fight alongside the male warriors of Masada.
You can catch Prescott now on Season 1 of "Finding Carter," which airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on MTV.
