'Marvel's Cloak & Dagger' Recall How Casting Olivia Holt & Aubrey Joseph Was A Challenge

Believe it or not, the chemistry between the stars of Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger was hard to come by

During the 2018 SXSW Festival over the weekend, showrunner Joe Pokaski, Marvel’s Head of Television, Jeph Loeb, and pilot director, Gina Prince-Bythewood all opened up about how Olivia Holt and Aubrey Joseph got their roles.

While Olivia was a frontrunner from the start, Cloak was more difficult to come by, especially when they wanted someone who would “crackle on screen with their Dagger,” according to Rotten Tomatoes.

Both Olivia and Aubrey recalled the day they had their final audition together, and how there was “undeniable chemistry” in the room when they began.

“It felt like we were the only two people in the room,” Olivia says. “It didn’t feel like there were 12 people sitting there watching us.”

And while the series will feature their love story, it’s about more than that.

“Half the people wants them to end up together and half the people are offended by that idea,” Joe Pokaski shared. “First and foremost, it’s a story about finding your best friend.”

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