Fans have been eagerly awaiting to see who would play the title roles in the upcoming Marvel television series Cloak And Dagger. And now, that wait has officially come to an end!
Deadline reports that Olivia Holt and Aubrey Joseph will play the title characters on the new series, which will air on Freeform. It follows the interracial romance between Tandy Bowen (Holt) and Tyrone Johnson (Joseph), who come from starkly different backgrounds, each growing up with a secret they never dared share with another soul. Tandy can emit light daggers and Tyrone has the ability to engulf others in darkness. They quickly learn they are better together than apart — but their feelings for each other make their already complicated world even more challenging.
"Marvel is delighted to have found our “Cloak & Dagger," said Jeph Loeb, Head of Marvel Television and Executive Producer. "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."
