Macy Vaughn on “Charmed”
In The CW’s new series “Charmed,” Madeleine Mantock plays Macy Vaughn, a shy, intense science nerd. Macy has a Ph.D. in molecular genetics who moves to Hilltowne, Michigan, to work in the university lab. Once in Hilltowne, Macy is shocked to discover that she has two half-sisters, Mel (Melonie Diaz) and Maggie (Sarah Jeffery). What’s more, Macy and her sisters are witches! Macy is determined to understand the secrets of her childhood, and how she can be both a witch and a scientist with her new found telekinesis power.
Mantock recently starred as Veil in the hugely successful and compelling drama “Into the Badlands,” starring alongside Orla Brady and Nick Frost. She will soon be seen in a key role in the much anticipated six-part series “Age Before Beauty” for BBC One. Her other television credits include The CW’s “The Tomorrow People,” in which she played the lead role of Astrid; BBC One’s hit comedy series “Lee Nelson’s Well Funny People,” featuring a host of comedy characters straight from the streets of modern Britain, and “The Truth Commissioner” for BBC Two, a drama based on the edgy and compelling novel of the same name by David Park.
Her further roles to date include the film “Edge of Tomorrow,” with Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt, from the director of “The Bourne Identity” and “Mr. & Mrs Smith.” Next year Mantock will star as Faith in the upcoming film “Breaking Brooklyn.”
