Marvel's Runaways Casts Elizabeth Hurley as Morgan le Fey

Tony Sokol Jun 5, 2019

Marvel's Runaways conjures the devilish Elizabeth Hurley to play sorceress Morgan le Fey.

Elizabeth Hurley, who Bedazzled us as the devil in the 2000 faustian comedy, will next play one of literature's greatest sorceresses. Marvel's Runaways Season 3 has cast Hurley as Morgan le Fay, according to Variety.

“Elizabeth Hurley is joining the Marvel Universe and we couldn’t be more thrilled to have her portraying one of the most enchanting Marvel characters," Jeph Loeb, the head of Marvel Television and executive producer of Runaways, said in a statement.

Morgan le Fay is best known as the less-than-stellar student of the great Wizard Merlin. She first appeared in Sir Thomas Malory's 1485 page-turner Le Morte d'Arthur, as King Arthur's half sister and mother to one of his children. She is the lady who threw the sword Excalibur in the lake.

Marvel’s ‘Runaways’ Adds Elizabeth Hurley As Morgan LeFay
Elizabeth Hurley will be bringing some dark magic to Marvel’s Runaways on Hulu in the Season 3 role of Morgan Le Fey, a sorceress with considerable history and even greater power.

The Royals actress will be taking on the role of a character that dates back to 1955 in the lore of Marvel Comics (then still known as Atlas Comics). The character made her debut in The Black Knight issue No. 1, which introduced the nefarious Le Fey as the scheming half-sister of King Arthur of Camelot and a high priestess born with faerie heritage.

That 1955 issue was written by Marvel Comics icon Stan Lee, who imported Le Fey’s name and persona from the classic Arthurian legends that mesmerized him as a child. Black Knight issue No. 1 was illustrated by Joe Maneely, who is credited as the character’s co-creator along with Lee.

The character description from the Runaways producers: “Morgan

Runaways: Lyrica Okano Weighs In on Episode 2's Brutal Mother/Daughter Brawl, Fallout for 'Deanoru' Romance

Whew, talk about a Staff meeting.

In Episode 2 of Marvel’s Runaways‘ second season (now playing on Hulu), Nico (played by Lyrica Okano) fell into quite a parent trap when she showed up at her family home to reclaim the Staff of One. What followed was a startlingly intense throwdown between mother and daughter — one that threatened to claim some collateral damage along the way, in Nico’s friends.

TVLine spoke with Okano about slugging it out with TV mom Brittany Ishibashi, how the fallout of the fracas affects the nascent Nico/Karolina romance, and “darker” times still yet to come.

Marvel's Runaways Season 2 Review: Busier Is Better for Hulu Series

Whereas Marvel’s Runaways with its freshman run zeroed in on the kids’ discovery of their parents’ treachery and Pride’s subsequent suspicion that their human-sacrificing, hole-drilling jig was up, there’s a lot more afoot in Season 2 — and that’s a good thing.

First, a bit of housekeeping: Based off just a few episodes, my Season 1 review assigned the Hulu series a grade of “A-,” which in retrospect was admittedly on the high side. (I suspect that I was grading on a curve, based off “other” Marvel series released last fall. ) So, if last year in actuality netted out as a “B,
