The upcoming Cloak and Dagger series has cast its two leads. These two young stars should bring a fresh approach to a classic comic book duo.
Marvel made the official announcement today that actress and singer Olivia Holt will play Tandy Bowen (Dagger), while Aubrey Joseph will be playing Tyrone Johnson (Cloak). The upcoming Cloak and Dagger series has been described as a coming-of-age story.
“The characters of Tandy and Tyrone have always stood out to me ever since I first met them in the pages of Marvel comics when I was a boy,” said showrunner Joe Pokaski (Heroes, Daredevil). “When Olivia and Aubrey read for the roles, these characters leapt off the page.”

Holt is best known for her work on Disney Channel’s Kickin’ It. Joseph can be seen more recently in the HBO miniseries The Night Of.
Freeform has already greenlit Cloak and Dagger as a complete first season. It’s a story of Tandy Bowen, a once privileged girl who witnessed a storm wipe out her family, and Tyrone Johnson, a boy who was taught to be afraid after everything he loved was taken away from him. Everything changes for them when they run into each other.
