Exciting news for Freeform and Marvel fans! Disney Channel star Olivia Holt (Kickin’ It, I Didn’t Do It) and Aubrey Joseph have been cast as Tandy Bowen a.k.a. Dagger, and Tyrone Johnson a.k.a. Cloak, in the upcoming Freeform series Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger. The story follows the two characters as they fall in love, and each discover a new superpower: Tandy can emit light daggers and Tyrone has the ability to engulf others in darkness. We also have insight into the backstory of the two characters. Tandy’s life was uprooted when a disastrous storm destroyed her family and Tyrone had everything he held close taken from him. Now in their late teens, the two meet and their lives are changed forever. These characters and the story they will tell sound absolutely amazing, and we can’t wait to hear more!
Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger showrunner and Executive Producer Joe Pokaski said of the series:
“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.”
Head of Marvel Television and Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger Executive Producer Jeph Loeb also added:
“Marvel is delighted to have found our Cloak and 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.”
We can’t wait to see Olivia Holt and Aubrey Joseph in these roles, and will be counting the days until we can watch the story of Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger unfold! For more, make sure to follow Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram!
