Marvel’s Inhumans is adding to its ranks.
The upcoming ABC drama about a royal family of superhumans, led by king Black Bolt (Hell on Wheels‘ Anson Mount), has tapped Outlaw‘s Ellen Woglom to play an undisclosed character whose aerospace company job is second only to her passion for all things space and lunar. (Hit the comments with your theories!)
Also joining the ensemble are Extant‘s Eme Ikwuakor (as Black Bolt’s cousin Gorgon), Home and Away‘s Isabelle Cornish (as Black Bolt’s sister-in-law Crystal), Empire‘s Mike Moh (as Black Bolt’s cousin Triton) and Beyond the Break‘s Sonya Balmores (as Auran, the head of the Royal Guards).
Previously announced cast members include Graceland‘s Serinda Swan, Game of Thrones‘ Iwan Rheon and Lost‘s Ken Leung as Black Bolt’s wife Medusa, his brother Maximus and his cousin/closest advisor Karnak, respectively.
