Netflix has been busy developing its live-action adaptations of popular animated series from all over the world. One of the biggest on their list is the upcoming adaptation of Avatar: The Last Airbender, which will once again revisit the story of Aang, as he travels through the world to embrace his future as the Avatar while mastering all four elements. We got a good glimpse of the upcoming adaptation of the first season, but it looks like one more actress may have joined the production.
According to Knight Edge Media, actress Arden Cho may have joined the production in an unspecific role. There have been theories about her potentially joining due to her being in Vancouver for a month filming an unnamed project. She shared this information on her official Twitter back in March.
The actress made her big splash in the industry as Kira Yukimura on Teen Wolf, where she recently refused to return due to being only offered half the salary as her male co-stars. She’s gone on to have various guest roles on Castle, Hawaii Five-0, and even got a recurring role with Chicago Med.
With it being unclear who she might be playing, there are quite a few roles to fill for the first season. We know that it’ll likely adapt Book 1 from the original animated series. So, she could have a role as part of the Fire Nation, who’s going to face off against the Northern Water Tribe. She may also be part of the Earth Kingdom and is a tease for what’s to come in the future. We’ll see if this rumor turns out true once we get a first look at the series.
