‘Shadow And Bone’: ‘Westworld’s Ben Barnes & ‘Last Night In Soho’s Jessie Mei Li Among Cast For Netflix Series
Netflix has set the cast for its eight-part adaptation of Leigh Bardugo’s bestselling Shadow and Bone and Six of Crows Grishaverse fantasy novels, from Eric Heisserer, writer of Netflix’s smash hit feature Bird Box.

The story focuses on a young soldier who uncovers a power that might finally unite her country. But as she struggles to hone her power, dangerous forces plot against her. Thugs, thieves, assassins and saints are at all at war, and it will take more than magic to survive.

Jessie Mei Li will play the orphan soldier Alina Starkov on the 21 Laps Entertainment-produced series. She has previously been cast in Edgar Wright’s psychological thriller Last Night in Soho, which is slated for release in 2020.

Westworld and The Punisher actor Ben Barnes will play General Kirigan, the commander of a magical military elite in Bardugo’s fantasy world.
