AceShowbiz - The upcoming "Charmed" reboot has started to take shape. On Monday, March 5, The CW's reboot officially found its three sisters as it announced the final casting.
Madeleine Mantock ("Into the Badlands", "The Tomorrow People") is tapped to play the oldest sister Macy. A geneticist, Macy is described as "practical, driven, and brilliant, and she's completely shocked by the discovery that she's a witch."
Meanwhile, "Person of Interest" actress Melonie Diaz will take on the role of Mel. Mel is a lesbian and an outspoken activist who loses her way after her mother's death. Diaz's credits also include "Elementary", "Rizzoli & Isles", "Girls".
Rounding out the cast for the sisters is Sarah Jeffrey. The "Shades of Blue" star will portray bubbly college freshman Madison, the youngest sister of the siblings. It is said that her new life as a witch conflicts with her goal of being a sorority girl.
The three cast members will be joined by Rupert Evans. Evans will play a character named Harry, a "handsome, grandiose" professor with an infuriating charm and a mysterious interest in the three sisters. Many speculate that Harry may be the new Leo--a Whitelighter assigned to protect the sisters.
Also joining the series is Ser'Darius Blain. The "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle" actor has been tapped to portray Galvin, Macy's aspiring boyfriend. Galvin is described as a guy who is funny, mellow and in touch with his emotions.
Jennie Urman ("Jane the Virgin") is attached as an executive producer. Meanwhile, Jessica O'Toole and Amy Rardin are providing the script for the pilot in addition to serving as executive producers. Brad Silberling, whose credits include "Jane the Virgin", "Dynasty", "No Tomorrow" and "Reign", will serve behind the lens of the upcoming reboot, which is described as a "fierce, funny, feminist" take on the original series. Alongside Silberling, Ben Silverman joins Urman, O'Toole and Rardin as executive producers with CBS Television Studios producing.
