Alexis Denisof Joins ‘Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina’ Season 2
‘Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina‘ has added a Buffy alumnus to it’s cast for the upcoming holiday special and Season 2, as it’s announced Alexis Denisof takes a recurring guest role on the witchy drama.
Denisof is set to play Adam Masters, the boyfriend of Mary Wardwell (Michelle Gomez). Handsome and charming, Adam returns to Greendale after a stint overseas working with Physicians Without Frontiers – unaware that his fiancé has been taken over by the demoness Madam Satan. The character will first appear in ‘Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina: A Midwinter’s Tale’, which airs this December.
The Emmy nominated actor is probably best known for his role as Wesley Wyndam-Pryce, the ex-watcher turned “rogue bounty hunter” from Joss Whedon’s ‘Buffy’ and ‘Angel’. He also starred in Whedon’s brilliant adaptation of Shakespeare’s classic comedy ‘Much Ado About Nothing’, and recently won an Emmy nomination for his work on web series ‘I Love Bekka And Lucy’. You may also know him as cheesy news anchor Sandy Rivers on ‘How I Met Your Mother’, which he appeared in with real-life wife and ‘Buffy’ co-star, Alyson Hannigan.
Alexis Denisof isn’t the only new cast member for Season 2, as Jedidiah Goodacre lands the recurring guest role of warlock Dorian Gray. The owner of Dorian’s Gray Room, an exclusive nightclub, this enigmatic gentleman of an indeterminate age is very good at keeping secrets, especially his own – a cursed portrait he hides from prying eyes. The character will first appear in the Christmas special.
Goodacre is probably best known to our audience as Roman Sienna from Season 5 of ‘The Originals’ and Craig from Season 2 of ‘The 100’. He is next due to star in Netflix’s upcoming series ‘The Order’.
Also joining ‘Sabrina’ is Mckenna Grace, who will play Li’l Sabrina in a guest role during the holiday special. We’ll get to see what Sabrina was like as a precocious tot, and while The Church of Night celebrates the Solstice, that doesn’t stop Li’l Sabrina from asking Santa for something special.
The young actress is currently shooting the lead role in the feature film ‘Annabelle 3‘, and will also appear in Marvel’s highly anticipated ‘Captain Marvel’ opposite Brie Larson. Despite the fact she’s only 12, Grace already has an impressive list of credits including ‘Designated Survivor’, ‘Young Sheldon’, ‘The Haunting of Hill House’, and the Academy Award-nominated movie ‘I, Tonya’.
‘Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina: A Midwinter’s Tale‘ Christmas Special will premiere Friday, 14th December 2018, with Season 2 following in the new year.
