Olivia Holt and Aubrey Joseph will be Marvel’s CLOAK AND DAGGER.
They will star as Tandy Bowen and Tyrone Johnson respectively, two teens who team in the wake of discovering their new powers. Bowen can emit light daggers while Johnson can engulf people in darkness and the two also begin to fall for each other, which makes things more complicated. The TV series will deal with Tandy overcoming a family tragedy whilst Tyrone, once closed-off, begins to open up.
The series will air on the Disney-owned channel Freeform in the US but no landing spot has been determined for the UK with eyes on a release later this year. Holt is best known for her recurring role on I DIDN’T DO IT whilst the lesser-known Joseph has had roles in THE NIGHT OF and RUN ALL NIGHT.
