The official Marvel site has announced five new additions to the cast of ABC and IMAX’s upcoming Inhumans TV series in Eme Ikwuakor, Isabelle Cornish, Mike Moh, Sonya Balmores, and Ellen Woglom.
Eme Ikwuakor (Concussion, Extant) as Gorgon – Cousin of Black Bolt (Anson Mount), 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 (Ken Leung) yang, Gorgon would rather fight than talk to solve his problems.
Isabelle Cornish (Australia Day, Puberty Blues) as Crystal – Medusa’s (Serinda Swan) sister, Crystal is 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 (Empire, Street Fighter: Assasin’s Fist) as 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 (Beyond the Break, Soul Surfer) as 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 (Californication, Outlaw) as Undisclosed Character – 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.
In addition to the above, Marvel has also announced that Lockjaw will appear, presumably by way of CGI, describing him as “Crystal’s 2,000 lb canine companion; he is a two-thousand-pound dog (yes, a dog!) with the ability to teleport.”
“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,” said Executive Producer Jeph Loeb, with showrunner Scott Buck adding: ““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.”
Inhumans is set to premiere in September, with the first two episodes receiving a special IMAX release before moving to ABC, and also stars Anson Mount (Hell on Wheels) as Black Bolt, Iwan Rheon (Game of Thrones) as Maximus, Serinda Swan (Chicago Fire) as Medusa and Ken Leung (Lost) as Karnak.
