It seems that Netflix’s The Sandman continues to grow its stacked cast. According to DCTV.News, Cassie Clare has been cast as Mazikeen.
Created by Neil Gaiman and Kelley Jones in 1990, the character debuted in Sandman #22. The devoted ally of Lucifer, she serves as a servant to the Lord of Hell, even leaving with him for Earth when he retired.
Clare is not the first to play the character of Mazikeen. Lesley-Ann Brandt has portrayed her in the Netflix series Lucifer opposite Tom Ellis. It is not known how significant Clare’s role will be in the series, given the character played a small role in the volume of Sandman this season is set to adapt.
The Sandman series was given an 11 episode order from Warner Bros. and Netflix. Gaiman is set to executive produce with David S. Goyer and writer/showrunner Allan Heinberg. Production on the series was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which luckily gave the creative team time to perfect the scripts. Thankfully though, production on the highly anticipated series is finally underway.
