Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter has his First Lady

Robin McLeavy has been cast in Timur Bekmambetov’s Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter as Mary Todd, the titular hero’s love interest and future wife.

Something of a film newbie, McLeavy’s biggest credit to date is 2009’s decently-reviewed Aussie high school horror The Loved Ones.

The actress graduated with a degree in Performing Arts from Australia’s National Institute Of Dramatic Art in 2004.

Other confirmed casting includes Benjamin Walker as Lincoln himself, Anthony Mackie as his buddy Will, and Dominic Cooper as mentor Harry.

Bekmambetov appears to be favouring lesser-known actors for his adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith’s novel, which should offer the film a fresh, dangerous edge.

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter opens on 22 June, 2012.
