Supergirl isn’t the only Kryptonian related show that is getting a lot of attention today as Syfy’s Krypton just came out with big updates. The full cast were revealed today as six new cast members join previously announced Cameron Cuffe as Seg-El, Superman’s grandfather and Georgina Campbell as Lyta Zod in the series.
Game of Thrones’ Ian McElhinney has been cast as Val-El, the grandfather of Seg-El, who is described as followed:
“He is a rogue genius who believes that space exploration is a basic form of self-defense, and he has tried, without success, to warn the Kryptonian elite about the arrival of an ancient threat.”
Next up is Da Vinci’s Demons Elliot Cowan who will be playing Daron Vex, the Chief Magistrate of Kandor,
“His real business is defending Krypton’s established oligarchy against heretics and dissidents.”
World War Z’s Ann Ogbomo has joined the project as Primus Alura Zod, mother of Lyta Zod,
“A leader of Krypton’s military guild. She is an extremely tough and demanding training officer.”
Your Highness’ Rasmus Hardiker is playing the rankless Kem, who is described as:
“A brilliant engineer as well as Seg-El’s best friend and partner in an underground tech-repair business.”
The Royal’s Wallis Day is playing Nyssa Vex who is a junior magistrate and daughter of Cown’s Daron Vex. Last, but not least, Tennison’s Aaron Pierre will be playing Dev-Em, who is a cadet under Primis Alura Zod’s command.
“Years before the Superman legend we know, the House of El was shamed and ostracized. This series follows The Man of Steel’s grandfather as he brings hope and equality to Krypton, turning a planet in disarray into one worthy of giving birth to the greatest Super Hero ever known.”
Krypton has currently a pilot order, but is being eyed for a 2017 launch on SyFy.
