More cast members have been announced for the upcoming Netflix reboot of “Sabrina” and we’re pleased to show you them here. There’s still no date for the Riverdale spin-off “The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” but as more cast get announced it means we’re getting closer and closer. So, who do we have so far?
Kiernan Shipka has been cast as the lead character and she has previously starred in “Mad Men”. Her character is described as Sabrina’s character is described as “an empowered young woman, half-human, half-witch, Sabrina is just beginning her dark education as a sorceress, even as she tries to maintain a normal life as a sophomore at Baxter High. Intelligent, compassionate and brave to the point of recklessness, Sabrina is all that stands between us and the forces of darkness that threaten our world.”
Michelle Gomez has been cast as the villain, Mary Wardell. Wardell is Sabrina’s favourite teacher and mentor at Baxter High who gets possessed by Madam Satan, “the Devil’s handmaiden,” and then tries to turn Sabrina evil. Gomez is probably known mostly for her role as Missy in BBC’s Doctor Who. Her character is described as “a demonic entity compelled to turn young Sabrina Spellman to the dark side”.
