E! News sources confirm that the German star will portray a “shunned Mennonite” named Eleanor, who is seriously ruthless underneath her simple facade.

It’s unclear how she’ll fit in to Season 2 of this FX drama, which features Demián Bichir and Diane Kruger as detectives investigating crimes that span both sides of the U.S. and Mexico border.

Along with from AHS, Potente's TV credits include Copper, The Shield, House and Psych.

FX is yet to release a return date for The Bridge, but you can watch The Bridge online if you need to catch up.
