Rosabell Laurenti Sellers (Game Of Thrones) has been cast in the upcoming Disney+ Original series “Willow.”
“Willow”, set decades after Ron Howard’s 1988 movie, continues the spirit of adventure, heroics and humor of the original film. Warwick Davis will return in the role of the great sorcerer, Willow Ufgood. Amer Chadha-Patel (Aladdin), Ruby Cruz (Mare of Easttown), Erin Kellyman (The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Solo: A Star Wars Story), Ellie Bamber (Nocturnal Animals), Tony Revolori (Spider-Man: Far From Home), Cailee Spaeny (The Craft: Legacy) and Talisa Garcia (Baptiste) are all set to star alongside Davis. Dempsey Bryk (The Birch) has also been added to the cast.
Deadline reports that “Sellers will play a resourceful character with sharp, acerbic wit.”
Stephen Woolfenden (Outlander) directs the series.
Kathleen Kennedy, Michelle Rejwan, Jonathan Kasdan, Wendy Mericle, Ron Howard and Imagine Television will serve as executive producers, with Roopesh Parekh and Hannah Friedman as co-executive producers. Additionally, Bob Dolman will serve as consulting producer with Julia Cooperman as producer.
Sellers is best known for playing Tyene Sand in HBO’s Game of Thrones. Sellers’ other credits include Nickelodeon’s Mia And Me, Crackle Plus series Spides and John Travolta sports drama Trading Paint.
“Willow” is currently in post-production and is slated to debut on Disney+ later this year.
