Where You've Seen The Cast Of Titans Before

Based on the popular DC Comics superhero team created by Bob Haney and Bruno Premiani, "Titans" is a coming-of-age action drama which depicts the lives of young heroes trying to find their purpose and identity while fighting off powerful villains together. The Teen Titans have been adapted for television a handful of times before, but this version of the Titans is gritter and darker than any of the other on-screen incarnations. In this series, the team's core members include Nightwing, Starfire, Raven, and Beast Boy. Throughout its first three seasons, the show features great character development and strong storylines that benefit each character's growth.

Before its official debut in fall of 2018, the project had actually endured a series of setbacks during its four-year-development phase. These included securing the television rights to use the character Dick Grayson, aka Robin and aka Nightwing, who has been a vital part of the team since its conception (via Deadline). After premiering its first two seasons on the DC Universe app, the series has since moved to HBO Max where it can be viewed by a much larger audience.

Leading the cast are Brenton Thwaites, Teagan Croft, Anna Diop and Ryan Potter, who have been on the show since Season 1. They are joined by an ensemble cast consisting of long-time TV stars and newcomers. Let's get to know more about the cast of "Titans."

Brenton Thwaites as Nightwing

In "Titans," Brenton Thwaites stars as Dick Grayson, who is the first person to take on the mantle of Robin. When the audience meets him in Season 1, Dick has moved on from being Batman's sidekick to fighting crimes on his own away from Gotham City. After being Robin for a long time, he struggles to find his own identity and purpose. During the second season finale, Dick finally makes his long-awaited debut as Nightwing after defeating Deathstroke with the help of the Titans.

Thwaites started racking up IMDb credits in 2010 when he made his feature debut in the independent Australian drama thriller "Charge Over You." Not long after, Thwaites scored a recurring role on the long-running Australian soap opera "Home and Away," known for launching the careers of A-list stars like Naomi Watts, Heath Ledger, and Chris Hemsworth. In 2012, Thwaites got cast in his first Hollywood project in the form of Lifetime's TV film "Blue Lagoon: The Awakening." After that, he started securing major parts in films including the psychological horror "Oculus" in 2013 alongside Karen Gillan. He played the starring role in 2014's "The Giver," an adaption of the YA novel that also includes performances by Jeff Bridges, Meryl Streep, and Taylor Swift. He's also in 2014's "Maleficent" starring Angelina Jolie, the Helen Hunt-led drama "Ride," and the sci-fi thriller "The Signal."

By the mid-2010s, Thwaites nabbed leading roles in back-to-back high-profile features in the form of the action fantasies "Gods of Egypt" and "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales." The latter features the Australian actor playing Henry Turner, the son of Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley's Will and Elizabeth. He followed that up with appearances in more independent films including the horror comedy "Office Uprising," the drama film "An Interview with God," and the crime drama "A Violent Separation."

Anna Diop as Starfire

Anna Diop portrays the role of Koriand'r, aka Kory Anders, aka Starfire, in "Titans." Originally created by Marv Wolfman and George Pérez, Starfire is the superpowered princess of the planet Tamaran who has been sent to Earth. She's a strong supporter of her teammates in both physical combat against evil and in social combat against threats to her friends' emotional well-being.

Way before landing a big break with "Titans," Diop nabbed a recurring role on the Chris Rock-inspired sitcom "Everybody Hates Chris" in 2006. She also made appearances on shows like "Lincoln Heights," "Whitney," "Southland," "Touch," and "Quantico." In 2015, Diop landed her first series regular role on the supernatural drama "The Messengers," which only ran for one season. Afterward, she joined Fox's short-lived spinoff "24: Legacy" as main cast member alongside Corey Hawkins. She also scored recurring appearances on shows like the Oprah Winfrey-produced soap opera "Greenleaf" and the police drama "Bosch."

As for film, Diop's early roles include a minor part in the psychological thriller film "The Moment" starring Jennifer Jason Leigh. In 2016, she portrayed a supporting character in the Chadwick Boseman-led revenge thriller "Message from the King." She followed that up with appearances in two horror films "The Keeping Hours" and Jordan Peele's "Us." Diop's upcoming projects include a leading role in Prime Video's psychological horror "Nanny."

Teagan Croft as Raven

Teagan Croft plays Rachel Roth, aka Raven, in "Titans." Raven is best known as the daughter of DC villain, the demonic Trigon. Because of her heritage, Raven is always fighting her inner darkness to keep it from fully taking control of her. Through the Titans, she wants to use her dark powers to help innocent people, rather than become the evil entity she was supposedly born to be.

Croft is an Australian actress who, following a leading performance in a stage adaptation of Harper Lee's classic novel "To Kill a Mockingbird," made her television debut in 2016 on the long-running soap opera "Home and Away." Croft successfully landed her first film project in the form of the sci-fi action endeavor "The Osiris Child" opposite "Twilight" vet Kellan Lutz. Croft was tapped to portray Raven in "Titans" at the age of 13 (via Deadline).

Croft also recently starred in and executive produced two short films — "Bella and Bernie" and "Woman of a Certain Sage." Her next major upcoming project is the biographical drama "True Spirit" starring Oscar winner Anna Paquin.

Ryan Potter as Beast Boy

Ryan Potter takes on the role of Gar Logan, aka Beast Boy on "Titans." Beast Boy is a green-haired carefree teenager best known for his ability to shapeshift into any animal. He is often considered the team's comic relief thanks to his charm and humor.

Potter is a former Nickelodeon star who made his TV debut on the action-comedy series "Supah Ninjas" in 2011. Potter had already been training in martial arts since he was 8 years old, which couldn't have hurt his chances of getting cast in a show called "Supah Ninjas" (or on "Titans," for that matter). Potter worked with Nickelodeon on two other shows — the gameshow "Figure It Out" and the sitcom "Fred: The Show." Following the cancellation of "Supah Ninjas," he landed his first high-profile project in the form of Disney's animated film adaptation of "Big Hero 6," loosely based on the Marvel comic of the same name. In the Oscar-winning feature, Potter voiced kid inventor Hiro Hamada who forms a bond with his late brother's final robotics project, Baymax. Potter also voiced Hiro in the "Big Hero 6: The Series” and in the Disney+ miniseries "Baymax!"

Apart from the "Big Hero 6" franchise, audiences may have also heard Potter's voice on Netflix's popular animated adventure survival series "Jurassic World Camp Cretaceous." For five seasons, Potter played the confident and wealthy Kenji Kon.

Joshua Orpin as Superboy

In "Titans," Joshua Orpin portrays Conner Kent, aka Superboy. Like in the comics, Conner is a Cadmus experiment made up of Superman and Lex Luthor's genetic materials. Orpin's version of the character is first introduced during the second season along with Krypto the Superdog. Since he's technically half-Kryptonian, he has most of Superman's powers, including strength, speed, and heat vision. Due to his complicated parentage, he's constantly questioning his identity with regards to his capacity to do good and evil.

Orpin is an Australian actor whose earlier on-screen appearances include two short films, "Dark Horses" and "You, Me & Karen," as well as the independent dramedy "The Neon Spectrum." The following year, he made his television debut with a one-episode appearance on "The Doctor Blake Mysteries."

Curran Walters as Red Hood

Curran Walters plays Jason Todd, who is first introduced in Season 1. In "Titans," DC fans meet the playful and brash Jason Todd as Batman's newest Robin, officially replacing Dick Grayson after he leaves Gotham. Later on in the series, he transforms into the villainous Red Hood after Jonathan Crane resurrects him from his death at the hands of The Joker.

Walters made his television debut in 2014 in the TV film "Growing Up and Down," which also starred eventual "To All the Boys I've Loved Before" breakout Noah Centineo. Walters followed that up with a one-episode appearance on "New Girl" as well as recurring roles on the crime drama "Game of Silence" and the Disney Channel sitcom "Girl Meets World."
