Marvel have announced that Eme Ikwuakor, Isabelle Cornish, Mike Moh, Sonya Balmores and Ellen Woglom round off the cast for ABC’s Marvel’s Inhumans television series.
Marvel’s Inhumans will explore the never-before-told epic adventure of Black Bolt and the royal family, along with a race of superhumans with diverse and singularly unique powers. Eme Ikwuakor (whose credits include Extant and Hold) will be playing the role of Gorgon, cousin of Black Bolt, member of the Royal family, and leader of Attilan’s military. With super strong legs, complete with hooves, he can generate destructive seismic waves with a single stomp. The yin to his cousin Karnak’s yang, Gorgon would rather fight than talk to solve his problems. Isabelle Conrish (whose credits include Home & Away and Puberty Blues) will be playing the role of Medusa’s sister Crystal, the youngest member of the royal family and has the ability to control the elements. Impetuous and independent she is also deeply devoted to her family. Mike Moh (whose credits include Street Fighter: Resurrection and Empire) will be playing the role of Triton, Black Bolt’s cousin, he’s calm under pressure and supremely athletic. His gift is his fish-like ability to live underwater. Sonya Balmores (whose credits include Beyond the Break and Option Zero) will be playing the role of Auran, head of the Royal Guards on Attilan, a capable and no-nonsense woman. She is fiercely loyal to the King of Attilan. Ellen Woglom (whose credits include Chicago Fire and Castle) will have a role that’s unknown at this time, though the character is described as being smart, intense, and focused—so focused that oftentimes, social skills take a back seat. Her job at a private aerospace company is her life, second only to her passion for all things space and lunar. She’s primed to be swept up in an adventure.
Head of Marvel Television and Executive Producer, Jeph Loeb said:
We’re thrilled with this cast. Eme, Isabelle, Mike, Sonya, and Ellen round out an incredible array of talent that will finally bring the Royal Family of the Inhumans to IMAX and ABC.
Executive producer and showrunner, Scott Buck added:
With Eme, Isabelle, Mike, Sonya, and Ellen portraying the rest of our leading roles, we have a strong cast that is going to add tremendous depth to our Royal Family.
Ikwuakor, Cornish, Moh, Balmores and Woglom will be joining already cast Iwan Rheon (Maximus), Anson Mount (Black Bolt), Serinda Swan (Medusa) and Ken Leung (Karnak). The straight-to-series show will have its first two episodes premiere exclusively in IMAX theatres for two weeks in September 2017, prior to the show starts on the network. Roel Reine will direct the first two episodes, while Scott Buck and Jeph Loeb will serve as executive producers alongside Jim Chory.
