Several days ago, I was made aware by one of my followers Lea, about some interesting social media activity by Sophia Di Martino, among others involved with the Loki series. After further thought and considering the evidence, it seems a strong likelihood that child actor Jack Veal has the part of young Loki in the series.
Earlier this year, Murphy’s Multiverse reported that there was a casting call for a boy and a girl for the Loki series. The girl’s part has seemingly has been filled by Cailey Fleming (playing “Young Sylvie” per IMDb). The boy’s description draws a striking resemblance to a younger version of the God of Mischief, and is a good match to Jack Veal, who has appeared in The End of the F***ing World, The Favourite, and Call the Midwife.
Does this mean a version of Kid Loki from the comics is coming to the MCU? Very possibly. It has long been rumored we’d see various versions of Loki in the series. The Lokis could even be interacting with each other when you consider time travel and the TVA is involved. The role of young Sylvie, who seems to be a young version of Di Martino’s character, is curious tho, and makes me wonder if there could be a flashback between them as children. On the other hand, the part of the boy being “recurring” does point to him having a significant role in the series.
Bear in mind, this casting and role has by no means been stated officially yet. Whoever Jack is playing, I hope he has great fun filming and enjoys every minute of being part of the MCU.
