“Spooks” and “Penny Dreadful” star Shazad Latif is changing up his role on the upcoming CBS All Access series “Star Trek: Discovery”.
Latif was supposed to be playing a Klingon commander named Kol, now though he’s taking on the role of a Starfleet officer named Lieutenant Tyler.
As a result, Kenneth Mitchell (“Jericho”) is taking over the role of Kol. Additionally, Clare McConnell and Damon Runyan have joined the cast as Klingon leaders named Dennas and Ujilli respectively. “The 100” actor Rekha Sharma has also hopped on board as security officer Commander Landry.
‘Discovery’ started filming in late January with the shoot going through until the end of Summer.
