The first season of the upcoming Marvel television series, The Inhumans, is almost done filming as the season finale is currently being filmed. But it appears that the show added three additional characters, with two of them being from the comics while the other is an original one.
According to IMDb (which you should always take with a grain of salt in its reporting), Michael Buie (Grey’s Anatomy) and Tanya Clarke (Banshee) have been tapped to play King Agon and Queen Rynda respectively. For readers of Inhumans comics, Agon and Rynda are the father and mother of Black Bolt and Maximus, who in the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be played by Anson Mount and Iwan Rhoen.
It remains to be seen if they will be used in flashbacks or if they are taking part of the storyline in the present. In addition to that, The 100 star Henry Ian Cusik will be playing Dr. Evan Declan. If IMDb is correct, then Dr. Declan will be a recurring character throughout multiple episodes of The Inhumans.
“After the Royal Family of Inhumans is splintered by a military coup, they barely escape to Hawaii where their surprising interactions with the lush world and humanity may prove to not only save them, but Earth itself.”
Marvel’s The Inhumans, starring Anson Mount (Hell on Wheels) as Black Bolt, Serinda Swan (Smallville) as Medusa, Iwan Rhoen (Game of Thrones) as Maximus the Mad and Ken Leung (LOST) as Karnak, Eme Ikwuakor (Concussion) as Gorgon, Isabelle Cornish (Australia Day) as Crystal, Mike Moh (Empire) as Triton, Sonya Balmores (Beyond the Break) as Auran, and Ellen Woglom (Californication), is set to premiere on Friday nights at 9/8c on ABC.
