Abbie Mills Meets Her Real Life Counterpart


A few weeks ago we shared the story of Officer Wendy Yancey, the real Sleepy Hollow’s sole female police officer and a woman of color who said that people have been asking her if she was the direct inspiration for Sleepy Hollow‘s Abbie Mills ever since the show aired. She’s not, but since word about her got out, she’s come to the attention of the Sleepy Hollow crew, who brought her to their NYCC panel so that the cast could have the honor of meeting her. According to Orlando Jones, “she said that tourism to the village has increased over 30% since the show premiered.”
