More Cast Announced for A&E's 'Bates Motel'


Two new cast members have been added to A&E's Psycho "prequel," Bates Motel.

First up is Nicola Peltz who will play Bradley Kenner, a classmate who Norman takes a liking to. Hollywood Reporter says she is "bright and effortlessly sexy with a depth that makes her seem older than she really is." Peltz is best known for her role in The Last Airbender.

Next is Olivia Cooke, who will play Emma. Deadline calls her character "eccentric and extremely bright ... [she] has a disease that could take her life early and gives her a sense of adventure and that time is of the essence." Cooke is relatively new to acting, but will appear in the upcoming Hammer film The Quiet Ones.

Cooke and Peltz join a cast that includes Vera Farmiga, Freddie Highmore, and Max Thieriot.
