Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger is quickly shaping up with the addition of six more series regulars. Meet the people who are part of Tyrone and Tandy’s lives.
Recently, showrunner Joe Pokaski expressed his excitement at the casting of Olivia Holt and Aubrey Joseph as the titular stars. This time around, anticipation for Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger Freeform series likely rose a notch as Marvel announced news of the additional cast members came out. Once again, Pokaski shared his enthusiasm but now for the whole ensemble.
“It’s been important to us from day one that ‘Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger’ is about character and emotion above all. We’re so excited to have assembled a murderers’ row of talented actors who can execute on that, and then some,” Pokaski said.
Meet the New Additions to Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger Cast
Melissa Bowen (Andrea Roth/Rescue Me, Blue Bloods) is Tandy’s mom. Ever the optimist, her undying love for her daughter stands out despite her struggles to adjust to her new life. Apparently, the Bowens lived a privileged life. However, tragedy struck and left them in hardship.
Adina Johnson (Gloria Reuben, ER/Mr. Robot) and Michael Johnson (Miles Mussenden, Bloodline/Queen Sugar) are Tyrone’s parents. Both want the best for their son and they work hard to give him the life he deserves. However, Adina’s protectiveness of Tyrone can be too much at times.
Liam (Carl Lundstedt, Grey’s Anatomy/Conviction) is Tandy’s partner in crime. Yet at the same time, he doubles as her boyfriend. Dr. Bernard Sanjo (James Saito, Life of Pi) has a strong bond with Tyrone. As such, they have a unique relationship. Lastly, Detective Connors (J.D. Evermore, True Detective/The Walking Dead) reportedly has a frightening personality possibly owing to some secret he keeps.
As per Screen Rant, it would appear the TV show is keeping with what Agents of SHIELD has started. This means Dr. Sanjo, Liam, and Detective Connors are original characters of the comic book.
It remains unknown if the Lord of Light, who happens to be Tandy’s father, will be part of Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger. Yet SR surmised the primary protagonist could be Mister Negative, the other product of Dr. Simon Marshall’s experimentation. Incidentally, Marshall is another character yet to be cast.
Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger Premiere
Production for the series reportedly starts later this month in conjunction with The Runaways. Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger air date could likely be in 2018.
