Ser’Darius and the cast that joins him on The CW’s reboot of Charmed have big shoes to fill, so we’re excited to see what they come up with!

While critics were skeptical about the second film in the franchise, it has grossed nearly $900 million in box offices all over the world. That’s a massive success for a movie that only cost $90 million to make, according to Box Office Mojo.
3.) Ser’Darius began acting when he was only 12 years old. It all started when he helped his mom, a middle school English teacher, rewrite a school play.

Ser’Darius starred in his first movie after being cast in 2009’s Suckerpunch!

There’s The Last Full Measure which stars Sebastian Stan, Bolden which stars Ian McShane, and Beneath the Leaves with Mira and Paul Sorvino.
5.) Ser’Darius credits his family and team for raising him up in Hollywood. “I was very lucky to have a father who took me to church. I was raised with moral principles that would not be shaken in hard times. And mentorship is huge — it’s really important to be around people who have been where you’ve been, people you look up to and who will keep you strong,” the young actor told Backstage.com when asked how he is able to maintain such a level head.
