Former Disney Channel star Olivia Holt will play Tandy (“Dagger”) while Run All Night’s Aubrey Joseph will play Tyrone (“Dagger”) in the coming-of-age drama.
Speaking about the announcement, Cloak & Dagger Executive Producer and Showrunner Joe Pokaski said “The characters of Tandy and Tyrone have always stood out to me ever since I first met them in the pages of Marvel comics when I was a boy. When Olivia and Aubrey read for the roles, these characters leapt off the page. We’re so excited to see what these talented young actors bring to the Marvel Universe.”
Jeph Loeb, Head of Marvel Television and Executive Producer on the series, added “Marvel is delighted to have found our “Cloak & Dagger. Olivia Holt and Aubrey Joseph encompass the true essence of the characters and we are excited for the audience to see them in these roles.”
The series is set to air on Freeform (formerly known as ABC Family) in 2018.
