The Shannara Chronicles IMDB.com page is featuring two additions to the TV series!

Actors Genevieve Aitken and Kendal Rae will play the roles of the witch sisters, Mallenroh and Morag. The two witches discover Wil Ohmsford carries a powerful talisman, the possession of which could give them a powerful new weapon.

Mallenroh will be played by Genevieve Aitken. We have seen her work both on screen and on television. She played a Mord Sith in Legend of the Seeker and has been a stunt performer in such movies as Mad Max: Fury Road and Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit movie trilogy.

Morag will be played by Kendal Rae. The actor is also no stranger to television. Like others in The Shannara Chronicles cast, she has a great deal of TV experience, playing roles on such noted shows as Neighbours and 2 Broke Girls.

In the novel, the two witch sisters are identical twins. Rather than use CGI to achieve that with one actor or—infinitely harder—find identical twins who can act, the casting of two actors is a minor change that allows more acting chemistry to occur between two of the most important characters in The Shannara Chronicles.

I have to say, I love this casting. I can’t wait to see Genevieve Aitken and Kendal Rae transform into the most beautiful—and downright evil—witches TV has ever seen!

What do you think of this casting?
