Lucien Laviscount, the Afro-Antiguan actor from movies such as Azealia Banks‘ ‘Love Beats Rhymes‘ and the TV show ‘Scream Queens‘, is to star in the ‘Riverdale’ spinoff.
Good news below…
The show is named ‘Katy Keene’ and will pull fans deeper into the world of Archie Comics with help from Lucien, Camille Hyde and creators Aguirre-Sacasa, Michael Grassi and Maggie Kiley.
Katy Keene follows the lives and loves of four iconic Archie Comics characters — including fashion legend-to-be Katy Keene and singer-songwriter Josie McCoy (Ashleigh Murray) — as they chase their twentysomething dreams in New York City.
Lucien will play Alexander (Hyde portrays his equally powerful sister) and has already started work on the series following his success in the likes of ‘Waterloo Road’, ‘Still Star Crossed’ and ‘The Bye Bye Man.’
Deadline has this to say about his character:
He’s cut from a different cloth than his billionaire family, as he’d rather take the subway and listen to vinyl, and he secretly DJs at a dive club.
A premiere date is yet to be set.
