We have more casting news, everyone! According to Deadline, actor Ross Lynch will be joining Netflix‘s teen series Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. In a rather important role, especially for a teen drama, he’s been cast as Harvey Kinkle. Whose Harvey Kinkle? For those who need a bit of a refresher, he’s Sabrina’s boyfriend.
Kinkle is the son of a coal miner and a “dreamboat and a dreamer”, in this iteration. He’s also apparently completely unaware of the dark forces that are trying to pull the young couple apart. So by that we can guess that he has no idea that Sabrina is a witch. He may very possibly be a bit of an airhead, given how oblivious he is. But this is, of course, an assumption. We didn’t get too much information about the character, actually. Nor did we hear from the showrunners. But they must be very confident in their choice.
Lynch has been in a few productions, including some Disney channel roles and indie films. He recently gained some notoriety in his titular role of Jeffrey Dahmer in the film My Friend Dahmer. With his casting, I’m hoping we get some more news on this series soon. Maybe some more stills or even a teaser trailer!
What do you think of the casting? Let us know! Be sure to come back to Geek Girl Authority for more Sabrina news. Chilling Adventures of Sabrina currently doesn’t have a release date.
