Shannara Cast MTV

Spanish actress Ivana Baquero has landed the last pivotal role in MTV’s upcoming fantasy drama Shannara, TVLine has learned.

Based on the book series by Terry Brooks, Shannara takes place in a post-apocalyptic world known as the Four Lands. Baquero, who starred in Pan’s Labyrinth, will play Eretria, a lovely young thief who finds herself tagging along on a journey to save that world.

Shannara also stars Austin Butler (The Carrie Diaries) as Wil Ohmsford, a half-elf/half-human who discovers he’s the last member of the Shannara family; Poppy Drayton (Downton Abbey) as Amberle, an elf princess who becomes a member of the Chosen, a group dedicated to protecting the mighty Ellcrys tree; Aaron Jakubenko (Spartacus: War of the Damned) as Ander, Amberle’s uncle who helps her train to become a Chosen; and Manu Bennett (Arrow) as Allanon, a wise druid who sends Wil on a sizable journey.
