The 'Sweet/Vicious' Cast Is Filled With Many TV Newcomers Ready To Tackle An Important Subject
Is it just me or has MTV has been killing it lately with original series? Between Awkward, Faking It, and Teen Wolf, the network seemingly can't be stopped. Now, with the new series Sweet/Vicious, it is highlighting an important, real subject that gets swept under the rug far too often — but in an unexpected way. The main characters are essentially a superhero duo that seek revenge on men who commit sexual assault on college campuses and the Sweet/Vicious cast tackling this difficult subject in such a unique way are actually up-and-comers.
The series focuses on two college women who find themselves drawn together, despite their differences. Jules is a somewhat stereotypical, conservative sorority girl, while Ophelia is an alternative, green-haired rich girl. Their collective mission essentially becomes bringing justice upon men who have committed sexual assault on their campus. Their brand of justice isn't hindered by laws or societal boundaries though; they bring justice in the form of pure, unadulterated ass-kickings. That's right, it's vigilantism in its purest form. Here are all of the actors bringing these women and the rest of the characters to life when Sweet/Vicious premieres on Tuesday, Nov. 15
Eliza Bennett as Jules
Jules is a buttoned-up, pastel-loving sorority girl that ends up serving out seriously amazing plates of justice. You may recognize Bennett from Nanny McPhee, Inkheart and several episodes of the show Broadchurch.
Taylor Dearden as Ophelia
Ophelia is someone who seems be cool without even trying, and is the sarcastic, witty relief of the duo. You may have seen Dearden in the series 101 Ways To Get Rejected, but other than that, she is a relative newcomer to the scene. For an acting newbie, she nails the role of Ophelia.
Lindsay Chambers as Fiona Price
Nick Fink as Tyler
Dylan McTee as Nate
McTee in relatively unknown in Hollywood, but his role as Nate his sure to bring him some scripts in the future.
Brandon Mychal Smith as Harris
Smith has a lot of acting experience under his belt. You may know him from Dirty Grandpa with Zac Efron and Robert De Niro, the series Sonny With A Chance, or FX's You're The Worst.
Sweet/Vicious is tackling series issues in a relatable and comedic way, and the cast brings a fresh feel to the series. I can't wait to see how they handle the complex subject matter, hopefully for many episodes to come.
