Hours after the ABC series revealed at its San Diego Comic-Con panel that it’s introducing the characters of Aladdin and Jafar (to be played by Deniz Akdeniz and Covert Affairs favorite Oded Fehr), TVLine has learned that Galavant star Karen David has been cast as Jasmine.
Akdeniz and Fehr make their debut in the Season 6 opener (airing Sunday, Sept. 25), while TVLine hears that David will first be seen in Episode 4.
David’s previous TV credits also include the BBC One drama Waterloo Road, episodes of Strike Back and Castle, and the CBBC children’s sitcom Pixelface.
The reveal of Jasmine, Aladdin and Jafar comes on the heels of a flurry of other Season 6 castings, including Giles Matthey (24: Live Another Day) as Morpheus, Craig Horner (Hindsight) as the Count of Monte Cristo and the returns of Cinderella/Ashley (played by Jessy Schram) and Dr. Archie Hopper (Raphael Sbarge).
