We’re loving the way that the cast of The Darkest Minds is shaping up. There is another addition to the cast and we’re loving it.
20th Century Fox released the official news that they’ve added another to the cast of the adaptation of Alexandra Bracken’s book. Her name is Miya Cech.
The young actress will be playing Suzume, or “Zu,” one of the many young people traveling with Ruby (played by Amandla Stenberg). If you are not familiar with the story, it is about teenagers who develop supernatural abilities after a pandemic wipes out 98% of America’s children and teens.
In the books, Zu is 11-12. We’re impressed that they decided not to age up and have actually brought on someone that is younger than the character.
Miya joins already cast Amandla Stenberg and Harrison Dickinson.
