Heléne Yorke to Play Recurring Role on Showtime's MASTERS OF SEX

New York based actress Heléne Yorke is set for the new Showtime drama series, Masters of Sex. Yorke (30 Rock, A Gifted Man), who was featured in the pilot episode, will now recur throughout the first season. An adaptation of Thomas Maier's book, Masters stars Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan as William Masters and Virginia Johnson, real-life human sexuality research scientists. Also a notable theater actress, Yorke will continue her role as Jane, one of the pair's primary subjects in their experiments.

Yorke is repped by Gersh and Regarding Entertainment. The Sony Pictures TV produced Masters of Sex is scheduled to premiere later this year.

Masters of Sex is a one-hour drama starring acclaimed actors Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan, who will portray the real-life pioneers of the science of human sexuality, William Masters and Virginia Johnson.

The series chronicles the unusual lives, romance, and pop culture trajectory of Masters and Johnson. Their research touched off the sexual revolution and took them from a mid-western teaching hospital in St. Louis to the cover of Time magazine and nearly a dozen appearances on Johnny Carson's couch.

Caitlin Fitzgerald (It's Complicated), Nicholas D'Agosto (Heroes), and Teddy Sears (American Horror Story) also star. Emmy and Golden Globe award-winning actor Beau Bridges and Emmy Award winner Margo Martindale also star.

The series is an adaptation of Thomas Maier's book Masters of Sex: The Life and Times of William Masters and Virginia Johnson, The Couple Who Taught America How to Love. The pilot was directed by Academy Award nominee John Madden (Shakespeare in Love, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel).

Produced by Sony Pictures Television, Michelle Ashford (The Pacific) and Sarah Timberman and Carl Beverly (Justified, A Gifted Man) serve as executive producers.
