Shadow And Bone Nikolay Lantsov Casting news

I apologize for the person I become when I see Nikolai and Wylan in Shadow and bone for the first time.

Oh, hi. It’s been months since I started twisting Shadow and boneand I am glad to return to him with this very important news.

First, Patrick Gibson will play Nikolai Lantsov, he is the love of my life and one of the main characters in Shadow and bone trilogy, but also King of scars duology.

If you haven’t read the books, I don’t want to reveal too much, but just know that Nicholas is the son of Alexander III, King of Ravka, and he is smart, a little daring and mysterious. Before Shadow and bonePatrick has previously appeared on Portable door and OA

Jack Wolfe is cast as Wylan Hendrix, a rookie who meets the Ravens during one of their robberies in Six crows duology.

Again, wish this was spoiler-free for non-book readers, but book readers will notice that Wylan’s last name is different (for now). Prior to playing Wylan, Jack had previously appeared in magical flute and Witcher

Anna Leong Brophy will take on the role of Tamar Kir-Batar, Toli’s heartbeat and twin sister (more on him below). She appears in both Shadow and bone triology and King of scars books.

In the books, Tamar is a great fighter who will do everything to help those to whom she is loyal, namely Alina and Nikolai. You will also want to keep an eye on Tamara’s romance with another Grisha who is widely known in the books. Anna previously appeared in Back and Footprints

Finally, Lewis Tan will play Tolya Yul-Bataar, Tamar’s twin brother, who is also Heartbeat. Like Tamar, he also appears in Shadow and bone trilogy and King of scars duology.

Along with four new actors, Shadow and bone also promoted Daniel Galligan, Kalakhan Skogman and Daisy Head, who play Nina, Matthias and Zhenya respectively, to the series’ regulars.


I also hope Milo the goat reappears on the show.

Here’s all the new and returning cast together in what I would call an adorable photo from school that I would also like to frame and put on my desk.

Shadow and bone Season 2 will continue to follow Lee Bardugo’s novels about Grishavers and will likely follow the plot of both. Siege and storm and Six crows

Siege and storm begins after Alina and Mal escape from the Darkling in the Canyon and they now try to keep her identity as the Suncaster a secret while the Darkling emerges from the Canyon and is obsessed with finding Alina.

Meanwhile, from the 1st season he made a prequel to our beloved Six crows the characters – Kaz, Inej, Nina, Jesper, and Mathias – I’m guessing we’ll finally start to see some of the plot from this book unfold in the second season.


Six crows follows Kaz, Inej, and Jesper to Ketterdam as they run the Crow Club and are offered a once-in-a-lifetime robbery that could make them rich beyond their wildest dreams. Of course, they may need the help of Nina and Matthias, who are imprisoned at Hellgate, and the newcomer, Wylan, to finish the job.

Basically, I just can’t wait for these new actors to bring some of the biggest (and best) book characters from the Grishaverse to life.
