Olivia Holt Recalls How She Found Out She Got The Role of Tandy in 'Cloak & Dagger'

Olivia Holt got goosebumps the moment she heard that she was cast in Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger.

In a new interview with StyleCaster, the 20-year-old actress remembered the moment she was cast.

It was right after she performed the national anthem at the 2017 Pro Bowl in Orlando, and she picked up a phone call, trying to block out all the screaming football fans. Jeph Loeb, head of Marvel television, and Joe Pokaski, the creator of the series were on the other end.

“Jeff said three really cool words to me. That’s even how he described it. He was like, ‘Well, Olivia, I have just three more words to say to you: Welcome to Marvel,” Olivia shared.

“I just remember getting goosebumps and freaking out. I called my parents afterward, and we were all sobbing crazy tears. It was pretty epic.”

She continues, opening up about getting her hands on the first script: “I remember getting into my hotel room, reading the first episode, and being like, ‘Whoa. This is intense. This is not what I was expecting.’”

“The show does focus on serious topics, and that’s real life. It should be a conversation. It shouldn’t be something that we’re hiding or feel too shy to speak about,” Olivia says. “The fact that we’re able to tell this story right now, what it’s like to be a young black male in America and what it’s like to be a young white female in America, is so important.”

Cloak & Dagger airs Thursdays on Freeform.
