Rookie actress Cynthia has been cast to play the main role in The Witch 2 (working title), The Witch: Part 1. The Subversion sequel.

According to Dispatch, an official from NEW confirmed the news in a phone interview and said, “Rookie actress Cynthia has been cast in The Witch 2 through audition.”

With this, Cynthia will be adding The Witch 2 on the top of her resume. Her face hasn’t even been released, and the only fact reported is that she has beat 1408 hopefuls in the audition. Her agency ANDMARQ said, “She is still a rookie and she hasn’t even taken her profile pictures yet. We are still in preparation.”

As director Park Hoon Jung has discovered Kim Dami through an audition for The Witch: Part 1. The Subversion, expectations are already high on this new face discovered through the sequel.

Originally, director Park Hoon Jung set up a staff and began preparing for The Witch 2 in August, but the plan almost fell through as Warner Bros. decided to withdraw its Korean film business. Afterward, NEW stepped in to officially take over The Witch 2 production.

The Witch 2 is a sequel to The Witch: Part 1. The Subversion, released in 2018. The filming will begin soon.
