Netflix's untitled Riverdale spinoff has found its Aunt Zelda. The character will be played by actress Miranda Otto, who previously starred on Showtime's Homeland.
Read on for more details about her character below:
Otto will take on the role of Zelda Spellman, Sabrina's stern witch aunt. Proud and devout, Zelda believes there is no greater honor than serving the Dark Lord as a member of the Church of Night. She is the family’s disciplinarian, fiercely protective of Sabrina, and very much Cain to Hilda’s Abel.
In other Sabrina news, Riverdale's Lili Reinhart weighed-in as to whether or not fans will see major characters from the original series crossing over to the universe of the titular teenage witch.
She told Vulture:
I think Betty’s solely in the Riverdale world and it doesn’t make sense for a crossover. That’s why the decision was ultimately made to move to Netflix — to make these Riverdale and Sabrina shows completely separate universes. I don’t really know what Roberto’s plan is for Sabrina or what aspect of the supernatural or magic will be used. I know that doesn’t exist in Riverdale. At least right now. So it wouldn’t make sense for those two worlds to collide. So, I’d say don’t expect Betty to be in that world.
