Graceland and Ballers actress Serinda Swan has been cast as Medusa in the upcoming Marvel’s Inhumans television series which will premiere exclusively in IMAX theatres for a two-week window in September 2017 before airing on ABC.
Medusa is the Queen of the Inhumans and wife of Black Bolt — his most trusted advisor, a fiercely resilient warrior who has the ability to move and control her hair the way most people use their hands and fingers.
Swan joins the recently announced Anson Mount who will play Black Bolt, the enigmatic, commanding King of the Inhumans, with a voice so powerful that the slightest whisper can destroy a city and Iwan Rheon who will portray Maximus, a clever and charming Inhuman that is fiercely devoted to the people of Attilan, especially his brother, Black Bolt –though he harbors an intense desire to wear the crown himself.
Marvel’s Inhumans were first introduced in Marvel Comics by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1965 and have become some of the most popular and iconic characters in the Marvel Universe.
“Serinda empowers Medusa’s regal glory and still maintains a relatability that synced perfectly with the character,” said Jeph Loeb, Head of Marvel Television and Executive Producer. “She is nothing short of wonderful.”
Added Executive Producer and showrunner Scott Buck, “Serinda Swan brings a regal elegance, as well as a sense of great inner strength and fierce determination to the role of Medusa. I couldn’t be happier to have her as our Queen of Attilan.”
