"The Vatican Tapes" actress Olivia Taylor Dudley will round out the central cast of "The Magicians," Syfy's adaptation of the bestselling fantasy trilogy by Lev Grossman.
Buzzfeed reports she'll play magical prodigy Alice, joining the previously cast Jason Ralph as Quentin, Stella Maeve as Julia, Hale Appleman as Eliot, Arjun Gupta as Penny and Summer Bishil as Margo.
Premiering in 2016, “The Magicians” follows Quentin Coldwater, a brilliant and withdrawn young man recruited as a student at the mysterious Brakebills College for Magical Pedagogy in Upstate New York, where he discovers that the Narnia-like world from a series of children’s books he loved as a child is all too real and poses a danger to humanity.
Syfy also announced the addition of Rick Worthy as Dean Fogg, Anne Dudek as Professor Sunderland, Esme Bianco as Eliza and Jade Tailor as Kady. They'll appear as recurring guest stars in the 13-episode first season.
