Breaking Dawn actress Mia Maestro has been cast in Guillermo del Toro’s FX Network pilot The Strain. The pilot is based on Del Toro’s trilogy of novel’s The Strain, The Fall and The Night Eternal. Maestro will play the role of a gifted biochemist turned ruthless warrior trying to save New York City from a contaminating virus. Del Toro tells Deadline that he started receiving offers for movies and TV rights after the publication of the first book, but he didn’t want to do anything because he didn’t want that train of thought to influence the way the book was being written.
