Marvel’s latest TV series, The Runaways is still filming, but Buffy alum, James Marsters, will be playing one of the younger character’s father, recently spoke with Games Radar about working with the cast.
It’s a huge cast and everyone’s nice! Everyone’s really good at acting. There’s fifteen to seventeen of us, and I can’t spot a weak link, I’m really excited to see how it goes forward. I’m having a great time filming it; the director is fabulous and the actors are very experienced… the cast is kind of divided between parents and children, and the people playing the parents are all very experienced – resumes as long as your arm – but have not lost their child-like willingness to be playful, which is essential.
And the actors playing the younger characters all have great instincts and a great attitude, and when we sat down for the table read, the takeaway from everyone was ‘My god, all the young people are fabulous… this is going to be a really good show!’ was the consensus.
Marvel’s Runaways stars Rhenzy Feliz (Teen Wolf, Casual) as Alex Wilder, Lyrica Okano (The Affair, Unforgettable) as Nico Minoru, Virginia Gardner (Goat, Little Bitches) as Karolina Dean, Ariela Barer (New Girl, One Day at a Time) as Gert Yorkes, Gregg Sulkin (Faking It, Don’t Hang Up, Anti Social) as Chase Stein and Allegra Acosta (100 Things to do Before High School, Just Add Magic) as Molly Hernandez.
Every teenager thinks their parents are evil. What if you found out they actually were? “Marvel’s Runaways” is the story of six diverse teenagers who can barely stand each other but who must unite against a common foe–their parents.
Marvel’s The Runaways doesn’t have a premiere date yet, but it will be airing on Hulu.
