Deadline has reported the casting of Ander Elessedil! Here is more information from Deadline:

Aussie actor Aaron Jakubenko has joined the cast of Shannara, MTV’s 10-episode straight-to-series drama based on Terry Brooks’ massive fantasy book series. Written by Smallville creators Al Gough and Miles Millar, Shannara is set in our world, thousands of years after the destruction of our civilization. The story centers on the Shannara family, whose descendants are empowered with ancient magic and whose adventures continuously reshape the future of the world.

Jakubenko, repped by Active Artists Management in Australia and ROAR, will play Ander, Amberle’s (Poppy Drayton) uncle, an Elven Prince with the reputation for being the wild party boy who has yet to find his way in the world.
