Olivia Holt Calls 'Cloak & Dagger' Co-star Aubrey Joseph a 'Literal Superhuman'

Olivia Holt‘s new show, Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger, hasn’t even premiered yet, and we already know it’s going to be one of our faves.

Speaking with Teen Vogue, the actress opened up about playing Tandy aka Dagger, her “badass” superpowers and working with co-star Aubrey Joseph.

“I’m stoked to have a light dagger come out of my hand whenever I feel like it. It’s such a powerful, feminine and badass thing,” Olivia dished, before chatting about the focus on the characters.

“I feel like these characters are so complicated,” she shared, “and the things they are going through are the things that are happening in this day and age.”

She continues, “It really tells the story of what a white female is going through in 2018 and what a black young male is going through in 2018. We see these characters unfold into themselves in the most complex ways, and I feel as humans we connect to that.”

And working with Aubrey, aka Tyrone/Cloak, is one of her favorite things.

“I don’t use these words lightly, but I feel like he’s a literal superhuman,” Olivia says. “He is such a delight to work with, and so talented in a raw way. He’s naturally a person you gravitate towards, and I’m so lucky to have a partner on a show who just wants to create something that is special and important.”

Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger premieres in June on Freeform.
