First appearing in the Nov. 25 episode, Stenberg will play Macey, the teenage daughter of Capt. Frank Irving and ex-wife Cynthia. Macey feels disconnected from her dad since he has taken up his post in Sleepy Hollow. (The character's name was previously Mae.)

Thus far this season, Sleepy Hollow is the biggest percentage gainer when factoring in DVR, posting a staggering 71 percent increase in its second episode's live-plus-seven numbers to a 5.3 rating in adults 18-49.

When the series returns after baseball, Fringe favorite John Noble will make his debut for a major recurring role. (A newly released promo teases Noble's appearance.)

Stenberg is repped by WME and The Schiff Co. She next voice stars in the Rio sequel and starred in NBC's Craig Robinson comedy pilot.

Sleepy Hollow returns Nov. 4 at 9 p.m. on Fox.
