First glimpse of Heartstopper star Joe Locke in WandaVision spin-off

Heartstopper‘s Joe Locke appears in a new look at WandaVision spin-off series Agatha: Darkhold Diaries.

The actor was cast in the new Disney+ Marvel show last year, and is set to play the role of one of Lilia Calderu’s (Patti LuPone) familiars.

A new behind-the-scenes featurette from the series has now been released, with Locke briefly glimpsed on set (at the 1 minute 32 second timestamp) in modern clothing walking next to Agatha Harkness (Kathryn Hahn).

The actor previously opened up about joining the series, telling Entertainment Weekly: “Putting your energy into something is never gonna harm a situation. With Marvel, I was very determined to get the part.

“I had never been that determined about anything before, which I think meant that I was putting my energy into it. But I also think I’ve just been one of the luckiest people in the world in the last two years.”

Locke added that the series will resonate with LGBTQ+ fans, explaining: “The show is about misunderstood people and people who are alienated by their society for reasons that they can’t control. I think that resonates a lot with the queer community. I think there’ll be some camp.”

As well as Locke, Hahn and LuPone, Darkhold Diaries is also set to star The White Lotus‘ Aubrey Plaza, I Wish You All The Best‘s Miles Gutierrez-Riley, WandaVision‘s Emma Caulfield, who returns as Dottie, and Spree‘s Sasheer Zamata.

Speaking about taking on the role of sorceress Jennifer Kale, Zamata told Mashable recently: “It felt magical that I got to be in a show about witches. I talk about it so much in my [comedy] special. I definitely did do as much [comic book] research as I could but the way we formed this character is very different from what I think people expect.”

Meanwhile, following the Hollywood strikes, it was recently confirmed that the Agatha series will be delayed to Halloween 2024.

Agatha: Darkhold Diaries is set to be released on Disney+ in 2024. WandaVision is streaming on Disney+.
