SLEEPY HOLLOW beauty NICOLE BEHAIRE should be jumping joy over hit series but she’ll still “shamed” over playboy X “Magneto”.
FOX’s blockbuster new fantasy TV show “Sleepy Hollow” drew more than 13 million viewers for its premiere and has already been renewed for a second season – but beautiful star Nicole Beharie’s joy is said to be muted because she’s still pining for her skirt-chasing former beau, “X-Men” Magneto hunk Michael Fassbender.
Five foot–one Nicole, who plays gutsy cop Lt. Abbie Mills on the show, fell head over heels for the 6-foot womanizer Fassbender after they met in 2011 on the film “Shame.”
And she was said to be devastated when he dumped her.
But Nicole is getting moral support and advice on the set of her hit show, which is loosely based on the classic horror tale “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.”
Her handsome co-star Tom Mison – who plays a time-traveling Ichabod Crane – is desperately trying to convince her to forget Michael and find a new guy.
Although Nicole 28, still misses the 36-year-old German-born lady-slayer, who’s now reportedly dating British Olympian Louise Hazel, “she’s slowly but surely coming around,” said the insider.
“She’s thankful to have the series to keep her busy and good friends like Tom to keep her positive and grounded. Nicole is beautiful and will find the right guy soon enough.”
