Ever since Allison Argent died heroically at the end of Teen Wolf’s third season, fans have been clamoring for the actor who played her, Crystal Reed, to return.
And finally, the wait is over.
BuzzFeed News can exclusively reveal that Reed will guest star on the Feb. 23 episode of Teen Wolf, titled “The Maid of Gévaudan.” But there’s a twist: She won’t be playing Allison Argent. Instead, she’ll breathe life into the progenitor of the Argent family line, Marie-Jeanne Valet, in the flashback-heavy episode, written by executive producer Jeff Davis.
Before talk of this episode emerged, Reed had been reluctant to return to Teen Wolf. “Allison had such an amazing end to her life, I feel like bringing her back in any way might tarnish that beautiful story,” she told BuzzFeed News in a phone interview.
But when Davis called her to talk about the seedlings of what would become “The Maid of Gévaudan,” she couldn’t resist.
“Basically, Jeff just said, ‘France in the 1700s,’ and I was in,” Reed said of the call that reeled her back. “He was definitely playing into my emotions. He knows that I have been dying to do a period piece and I love getting my head around different accents and different cultures. He didn’t even have much of a character worked out other than it was based on the Maid of Gévaudan. And I knew the legend, so before really knowing anything further, I said yes.”

“The Gift” Premiere (Sydney) – August 24, 2015
On Thursday night, the Los Angeles Film Festival was at the L.A. County Museum of Art to present the world premiere of writer-director Dennis Hauck’s debut feature, the suspenseful detective story “Too Late.”
LACMA’s Bing Theater was used in part so the movie, an entry in the festival’s U.S. fiction competition, could be screened in a 35-millimeter film print. (A follow-up screening at the festival’s downtown L.A. Live venue will be a digital projection.)
In the film, set and shot in Los Angeles, John Hawkes plays a private investigator who receives a call from a young woman and then spends the rest of the story putting together what happened to her. The style of the film becomes a vital part of its storytelling, as each of its five scenes is told in a single long, uninterrupted take.
As a result, each scene comes to feel like a self-contained play that simultaneously fits into the fabric of the larger story, taking in a hillside park, a crooked businessman’s home, a strip club and bar, a drive-in movie theater and a hotel.
With its vintage-inflected aesthetics and unusual storytelling, the decision to shoot the movie using 35-millimeter film was a natural choice for Hauck.
