The streaming giant announces cast for its TV adaptation of Shadow and Bone

Per the streamer, the series based on Leigh Bardugo‘s Grisha trilogy and Six of Crows duology will star Ben Barnes (Westworld) as General Kirigan, Freddy Carter (Pennyworth) as Kaz Brekker , Jessie Mei Li (Last Night in SoHo) as Alina Starkov, Archie Renaux (Voyagers) as Malyen Oretsev, Amita Suman (The Outpost) as Inej, and Kit Young (Endeavour) as Jesper Fahey. 

Bardugo, who is serving as executive producer said of the casting: “I was so wary going into this process because these characters have lived in my head for so long. Turns out I had nothing to fear. Watching these actors begin to inhabit these roles has been pure magic.”

The eight-part adaptation is by Bird Box scribe Eric Heisserer.
