The news of the Charmed reboot coming to CW, a part in the 1970s prequel will no doubt be one of the most coveted parts for a young actress. With TVLine reporting the current character descriptors as:
Tina: African American. Whip-smart, Tina is one dissertation (and one dissertation advisor) away from a PhD. She can be reserved, even standoffish, in uncomfortable situations, but she picks up on
everything and she’s definitely making quick, accurate judgments about you.
Paige: Caucasian Cheerful, curvy, wholesome and as all-American as the apple pie she can’t wait to serve to the husband she has yet to marry. Paige’s main goal in life is to marry a rich doctor and be a wife and mother.
Annie: Caucasian. Intense, smart, and quick to anger. She dresses neutrally, though she could give two s–ts if you like her outfit, so stop wondering what “neutral” means. But under that tough façade, well… there is a fragility. A person desperate to be loved, and love.
As the CW enjoys reusing their actors here are a couple that we think would be great in those parts:
Tina: Maisie Richardson-Sellers
This British born actress got her start on the stage but rose to prominence in the role Rebekah Mikaelsson / Eva Sinclair in The Originals so she’s got past witch playing experience. This Oxford-educated actress will have no trouble playing the whip-smart Tina.
Paige: AnnaSophia Robb
Child star turned pre-New York Carrie Bradshaw AnnaSophia Robb was only on the CW for a short time but she sure made a lasting impression. Able to bring a lot to whatever role she’s in we know that AnnaSophia could easily pull the sweet witch.
Annie: Caitlin Stasey
The actress has proven time and time again she can play a hard-shelled softie as Kenna in Reign. An Australian actress who’s got a knack for accents and she looks like she’ll be able to pull off the 1970s hippy look.
