Legacies season 2 cast: Who is Leo Howard? Who plays Ethan Mac?
Legacies season two will premiere on Thursday, October 10 on The CW in the US. Unfortunately, an air date or platform to show Legacies season one and two in the UK has not yet been confirmed. The second series will pick up from the huge cliffhanger of season one when Hope (played by Danielle Rose Russell) sacrificed herself. With Hope potentially dead and Alaric (Matt Davis) leaving Salvatore School behind, some new faces have arrived in town.
Who is Ethan Mac in Legacies?
In Legacies season two, viewers will be introduced to Ethan Mac (Leo Howard), the son of fellow new face Sheriff Mac (Bianca Kajlich).
Ethan is a new student at Mystic Falls High School, who is described as a “competitive athlete” and “good-hearted new student.”
Mystic Falls is the school which Alaric Saltzman will be working at in season two and it looks like Ethan’s mother will be his new love interest.
Ethan’s sister Maya will be played by The Fosters actress Bianca Santos.
Speaking at San Diego Comic-Con this summer, Legacies showrunner Julie Plec told TVLine that both Ethan and Maya will have romantic feelings for Hope.
Also joining new characters Ethan and Maya is the vampire Sebastian (Thomas Doherty) and British sorcerer Professor Vardemus (Alexis Denisof).
