Lahana is probably best known for her role in Syfy’s Haven, but has had numerous guest appearances on many television shows such as the CW’s Hellcats. There is no word yet on which character she might be playing. The official description for the show reads:
Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger is the story of Tandy Bowen (Olivia Holt) and Tyrone Johnson (Aubrey Joseph) – two teenagers from very different backgrounds, who find themselves burdened and awakened to newly acquired superpowers which are mysteriously linked to one another. Tandy can emit light daggers and Tyrone has the ability to engulf others in darkness. They quickly learn they are better together than apart, but their feelings for each other make their already complicated world even more challenging.
In addition, Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger also stars Andrea Roth, Gloria Reuben, Miles Mussenden, Carl Lundstedt, , Jaime Zevallos, and J.D. Evermore.
