Deadly Class is SyFy’s newest action-drama series about a teen named Marcus (Benjamin Wadsworth) who is recruited to join Kings Dominion where he will be trained to become an assassin along with other teens. Based on the graphic novel created by Rick Remender, the show will follow Marcus as he has to learn the means of survival and dealing with the unlikeliest of foes.
Back in November, Wadsworth shared more about what his character will go through as he attends the academy. “Marcus tries his best to not put on any sort of mask, so when he sees all of these people he thinks of as his friends with masks, he feels the need to challenge them on being the most real person they really can be,” Wadsworth said. “And that gets him in trouble sometimes.”
Lana Condor has gained renowned success and recognition from her role as Lara Jean in the hit Netflix movie, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before. Now we will see her take on a completely different character in Deadly Class as Saya Kuroki in the series. Condor gave us a little insight into what Saya’s intentions in season one are. “I think a lot of her story arc in season 1 revolves around doing what Master Lin wants and taking care of her pledge, but I think other characters have a lot more in-depth, diving-in, breaking-down history of their characters,” said Condor. By pledge, she is referring to Marcus as she becomes his designated babysitter of sorts.

She's his keeper. He's her pledge.
