Fans of the NBC crime thriller "Blindspot" love Australian actor Luke Mitchell, but they may not be aware that his wife, actress Rebecca Breeds, will soon be as famous as he is after landing the main role in the series "Clarice."

Breeds will be familiar to those who love "The Originals," "Blue Water High," and "Pretty Little Liars," and her delicate beauty and talent have opened doors in Hollywood for the Australian girl from Sydney.

MEETING LUKE MITCHELL

In 2009, Mitchell moved from Gold Coast to Sydney to further his acting career and met Breeds at a housewarming party thrown by a mutual friend. Breeds admitted that she felt an immediate attraction and soul connection to Mitchell.

What Breeds didn't know was that Mitchell had already been cast in the soap opera she had been working in since 2008. The handsome man she found fascinating would be in her life, as her romantic lead in "Home and Away."

Breeds landed her first leading role as Clarice Starling, in the CBS crime thriller "Clarice."

ENGAGED

On set, Breeds and Mitchell's characters, Ruby and Romeo, were busy falling in love, and behind the scenes, the two actors were following suit. Three years later, Mitchell popped the question, and Breeds said yes.

The lovebirds tied the knot in January 2013 at the Kangaroo Valley Bush Retreat in New South Wales, a suitably Down Under theme for the Aussie lovebirds to start off their lives together.

GO WEST

The couple moved to the United States after Mitchell was cast in the sci-fi series "Tomorrow People," which was followed by roles in "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.," "Blindspot," and "The Code."

Mitchell now stars in the CW forthcoming drama "The Republic of Sarah" alongside Stella Baker, daughter of "The Mentalist" star Simon Baker. Mitchell has credited Breeds' unconditional support with helping him achieve international success.

BREAKTHROUGH

Breeds landed her first leading role as Clarice Starling in the CBS crime thriller "Clarice." The series, which premiered on February 11, 2021, is based on the career of the lead character from the 1991 film "The Silence of the Lambs."

In the new series, Clarice follows her new-found talent for sniffing out killers, but this time without the help of the urban and vicious Dr. Hannibal Lecter. Sadly, the cannibal doctor is a no-show on the series due to rights disputes.

BIG SHOES

Breeds has big shoes to fill as she takes up the role of Clarice Starling. The first actress to play Clarice in "Silence of the Lambs" was the iconic four-time Academy Award winner Jodie Foster who won Best Actress for the role.

The "SOTL" sequel, "Hannibal," premiered in 2001 with Anthony Hopkins reprising the role of Hannibal Lecter, the gentleman killer, and another Academy Award-winning actress Julianne Moore, as Clarice.

Fans have been eagerly awaiting the premiere of "Clarice." After the massive success of another "SOTL" spinoff, "Hannibal," which ran for three seasons to critical acclaim, the series may prove to be another hit.

"Hannibal" focused on Lecter's relationship with the profiler from the first Thomas Harris "Red Dragon" Will Graham. In the series, Graham unknowingly consults with the psychiatrist to catch the perpetrator of Lecter's own killings.

Rebecca Breeds and Luke Mitchell are tasting the sweet fruits of their hard work and success and may quickly grow into one of Hollywood's power couples. Currently, they are concentrating on their careers, but babies are definitely in their plans.
