Eli Roth's "Hemlock Grove" welcomes Aussie cutie Penelope Mitchell

It's been less than 24 hours since Jake let y'all in on "Hemlock Grove's" newest resident, Landon Liboiron. And that's already old news... A lovely young lady from Australia has just moved in, and she's packing a solid bloodline.

Penelope Mitchell (pictured right), cousin of genre favorite Radha Mitchell, has joined the Eli Roth-produced Netflix series, according to Deadline. She joins Famke Janssen, Bill Skarsgard and Liboiron. Mitchell is relatively new to the acting game, having appeared in a handful of Australian shorts and features, so "Hemlock" will definitely be her most high-profile production to date.

Based on Brian McGreevy’s upcoming gothic horror novel, "Hemlock Grove" is being directed by Eli Roth and produced by Roth, Eric Newman, Michael Connolly and Mark Verheiden.

“Hemlock Grove” starts with the body of a young girl, mangled and murdered in the shadow of the former Godfrey steel mill. Some suspect an escapee from the White Tower, a biotech facility owned by the former steel magnates. Others believe the killer could be Peter, a 17-year-old Gypsy kid from the wrong side of the tracks, who tells his classmates he’s a werewolf. Or it could be Roman (Skarsgard), the arrogant Godfrey scion, whose sister Shelley is disturbingly deformed and whose mother, Olivia (Janssen), the otherworldly beautiful and controlling grand dame of Hemlock Grove.

As the crime goes unsolved and outlandish rumors mount, Peter and Roman decide to find the killer themselves, confronting unspeakable truths about themselves and Hemlock Grove as the mystery unfolds.
