Cloak and Dagger Trailer

Cloak and Dagger Cast
Expect the romance between Ty “Cloak” Johnson (Aubrey Joseph) and Tandy “Dagger” Bowen (Olivia Holt) to take a prominent role in this. In fact, since this is coming to the youth-centric Freeform network, it makes sense that this would have something of a YA approach.
Ty is described as: “A young man who wanted nothing more than to prove he was fearless. But when everything he held close was taken away, life taught Tyrone to be afraid. Now older and more sheltered, Tyrone closes himself off. But when he meets a girl named Tandy, his life changes forever.”
And here’s Tandy’s description: “A once-privileged little girl who watched as her family was destroyed by a disastrous storm that uprooted her life. Now in her late teens, an unexpected encounter with a boy named Tyrone sparks a life-changing event.”
EW released the character description and photos for Cloak and Dagger‘s supporting cast.
J.D. Evermore plays Detective Connors, who “embraces an intimidating persona that overcompensates for a secret he keeps close to the vest.”
Next up, we have Carl Lundstedt as Liam: “A salt-of-the-earth townie. Liam operates as Tandy’s partner in crime while moonlighting as her boyfriend. But underneath this rough-around-the-edges appearance, Liam has big dreams. All of them include Tandy.
Andrea Roth plays Melissa Bowen: “Melissa is the eternal optimist, despite struggling to adapt to her new existence. She’s complex and compromised, and often needs to file her edges, but her love for her daughter burns brightly outside.”
Gloria Reuben plays Ty’s mom, Adina Johnson: “Adina invests every aspect of her being into giving her son the life she believes he deserves. But she props up and protects Tyrone so much, she almost forgets to love him.”
Ty’s dad, Otis Johnson, is played by Miles Mussenden: “Otis trudges through his desk job to keep his family safe and happy, all while too-quietly mourning a loss. This working-class father does what he can to ensure his son Tyrone will grow up to be a man.”
Emma Lahana is Detective Brigid O’Reilly, someone who “is accustomed to working in a man’s world, but she isn’t looking to be ‘one of the guys.’ Her New York sensibilities have hardened her from being too friendly or open, setting her apart from her Louisiana counterparts. Brigid believes in justice and doesn’t think that anyone should be above it, including other cops. Especially other cops…”
Finally, we have Jaime Zevallos as Father Delgado: “Father Delgado is constantly seeking redemption in spite of the fact that he’s not sure he deserves it. As a school counselor and priest, Delgado is a rock for Ty. Oppressed by the collar, he leads more through words than example as he still struggles daily with the life he has chosen.”
