‘The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’ has bewitched its second cast member. Jaz Sinclair joins Kiernan Shipka, who portrays the title character. Sinclair will play Rosalind Walker “the brash, empowered and outspoken daughter of Greendale’s minister and Sabrina’s (Shipka) best friend at Baxter High.”
Netflix ordered two seasons of ‘Sabrina’ straight-to-series after The CW passed. From the creators of ‘Riverdale’, ‘Sabrina’ will be a dark take on the Archie Comics “Teenage Witch” drawing inspiration from ‘The Exorcist’ and “Rosemary’s Baby’. ‘Riverdale”s showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa wrote the pilot for ‘Sabrina’ and will also direct and executive produce. Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Archie Comics CEO Jon Goldwater and Lee Toland Krieger also serve as executive producers.
Sinclair has already had some experience with Netflix, having appeared as Amber on romantic anthology series ‘Easy’. She also previously appeared on ‘The Vampire Diaries’ as Beatrice Bennett. She has also been in the movies ‘When the Bough Breaks’, ‘Fun Mom Dinner’, ‘Paper Towns’and the upcoming horror film ‘Slender Man’.
At this point, ‘The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’ is still a working title. It’s unclear when the series will become available, but considering that Sinclair is only the second cast member announced, it may still be a while before we see it.
Sabrina is an empowered young woman, half-human, half-witch, struggling
to reconcile her dual natures. She is just beginning her dark education as a
sorceress, even as she tries to maintain some semblance of a normal life as
a sophomore at Baxter High. Sabrina’s intelligent, compassionate, and brave
to the point of recklessness. She challenges witch-doctrine at every turn. She
is fiercely loyal to her family and friends; wickedly funny; and in the middle
of a star-crossed romance with her classmate Harvey Kinkle. Sabrina is all that
stands between us and the Forces of Darkness that threaten our world.
