Netflix series “The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” has appointed Ross Lynch to play Harvey Kinkle in the upcoming dark take on the comic.
Lynch joins Kiernan Shipka as Sabrina, Lucy Davis as Sabrina’s aunt Hilda, and Miranda Otto as her other aunt – Zelda. The show is within the universe of the Archie comics, so ties up with Netflix series “Riverdale”.
The project reimagines the world of Sabrina, and is described as a dark coming-of-age story that traffics in horror, the occult and, of course, witchcraft. Tonally in the vein of “Rosemary’s Baby” and “The Exorcist”, this adaptation finds Sabrina wrestling to reconcile her dual nature — half-witch, half-mortal — while standing against the evil forces that threaten her, her family and the daylight world humans inhabit.
Lynch is onboard as Sabrina’s boyfriend Harvey Kinkle – the prince charming of this dark fairy tale, Harvey is the son of a coal miner, a dreamboat and a dreamer, completely unaware of the dark forces conspiring to keep him and Sabrina apart.
The rising star has been seen on Disney’s “Austin and Alley” as well as TV movie “Teen Beach 2”. He’ll be seen next in “Status Update” and was recently the title character in “My Friend Dahmer”.
