Miranda Otto (“Annabelle: Creation,” “The Lord of the Rings”) has been cast as a series regular in the upcoming Netflix series based on the Archie Comics title “The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina”.
Otto will play Zelda Spellman, Sabrina’s sterner witch aunt who is proud and devout with the belief there is no greater honor than serving the Dark Lord as a member of the Church of Night. She’s also fiercely protective of Sabrina.
Otto stars opposite Kiernan Shipka as Sabrina, Lucy Davis as the gentler Aunt Hilda, Chance Perdomo as Sabrina’s warlock cousin Ambrose, Michelle Gomez as the antagonist Mrs. Wardell (aka Madam Satan), and Jaz Sinclair as best friend Rosalind Walker.
The dark coming-of-age series has received a twenty-episode, two season order at Netflix and while originally developed as a companion series to “Riverdale,” it has been confirmed multiple times there will be no onscreen connections between the series. Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa will serve as writer and executive producer.
