The Shannara Chronicles IMDB.com page is featuring two additions to the cast!
One will be portraying a familiar character from The Elfstones of Shannara. And the other is a new character!
Crispin Edensong will be portrayed by James Trevena-Brown. He is no stranger to TV, as he played Charlie Bryson in The Blue Rose TV series. And he is no stranger to fantasy either, playing a Goblin in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Now he will play Crispin Edensong, Captain of the Home Guard, who swears to protect Wil and Amberle on their perilous journey. Note the addition of the last name, which Crispin did not have in the novel, but I feel lends more importance to the character and the role he plays in the story.
Commander Tilton will be portrayed by Emilia Burns. She is also no stranger to television. She has worked on the TV series Neighbours, Terra Nova, and The Elephant Princess. She will play Commander Tilton, the Captain of the Black Watch, the legendary protectors of the Ellcrys and the Gardens of Life. The character did not appear in The Elfstones of Shannara but the addition of Tilton helps correctly adapt the story from book to TV series.
Both actors will have their hands full when The Shannara Chronicles airs! More news on when that will happen as soon as we can share it!
Welcome the new cast members!
