In bewitching Wednesday information, Ross Lynch has landed a key supporting function in Netflix’s still-untitled collection based mostly on Chilling Adventures of Sabrina as Harvey Kinkle, the principle love curiosity of Sabrina. The actor is probably greatest identified for his main roles in quite a few Disney Channel outings — along with a quite surprising flip as serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer in My Good friend Dahmer final 12 months.
In accordance with TV Line, Ross’s character is described as such: “The prince charming of this dark fairy tale, Harvey is the son of a coal miner, a dreamboat and a dreamer, completely unaware of the dark forces conspiring to keep him and Sabrina apart.” Whilst you might recall the character of Harvey being an aloof, amiable man within the ’90s Sabrina collection — performed on the time by since-retired actor Nate Richert — Netflix is being clear that this shall be a really darkish tackle the franchise, so anticipate Harvey to search out himself in a extra sinister setting than we have seen previously.
This Harvey information comes at a time when Netflix is on an info blitz concerning the present’s casting, which began earlier this 12 months when the community introduced Mad Males alum Kiernan Shipka would be taking on the titular, witchy function. (Truthfully, excellent casting. We will not reiterate this sufficient.)
Subsequent, the equally iconic roles of Aunt Hilda and Aunt Zelda have been solid as Lucy Davis and Miranda Otto, respectively, with the aunts dabbling within the occult far more than what we’re used to. (Specifically, Zelda “believes there is no greater honor than serving the Dark Lord as a member of the Church of Night” whereas Hilda is “adept at brewing spite jars in opposition to her household’s enemies as she is at concocting love potions for the scholars at Baxter Excessive.”) We even know who Sabrina’s best friend will be! Now, if solely Netflix can do us a stable and decide a voice for Salem the Cat’s feline body.
