We have all the answers for you with details about the actors’ personal lives.
Shadow and Bone Season 2 cast is filled with young actors and actresses who are talented and who shine out on the screen. From Jessie Mei Li to Freddy Carter, the series is filled with not-much-experienced but gifted actors who bring out the best in each character.
Jessie Mei Li (Alina Starkov)
Jessie Mei Li plays the lead character Alina Starkov, she is an orphan and a cartographer who finds out that she is a rare Grisha, with the ability to summon and control light. She falls in love with the Darkling (Ben Barnes) but realizes he is not what she thought he was. She then takes on a mission to bring him down. She will officially come back as a member of the Shadow and Bone Season 2 cast.
Mei Li is a 26 years old British actress and the only detail we know about her dating life is the fact that her partner was diagnosed with autism. In this post on Instagram, she talks about how she was diagnosed with ADHD when she was 24 and how her partner and her dad are both autistic.
Archie Renaux (Malyen Oretsev)
Archie Renaux plays Malyen “Mal” Oretsev who is Alina’s childhood friend and is also an orphan. He is a professional tracker in the First Army. Renaux is confirmed to return for Shadow and Bone Season 2.
As a 24-year-old English actor and model, Renaux has won the hearts of many fans of the series who wonder about his dating status. Unlucky for the fans, he is taken. Renaux has been in a relationship with his girlfriend Annie since 2019. The couple even welcomed a daughter in 2020.
Freddy Carter (Kaz Brekker)
Another favorite for the series’ fans is Freddy Carter who plays Kaz Brekker, the leader of a criminal gang called The Crows who try to catch Alina. He was also confirmed to return to the show for the 2nd season.
Another English actor, Carter is 29 years old. He has been in a steady relationship for the last several years with the actress Caroline Ford, with whom he starred in the Netflix series Free Rein.

Kit Young (Jesper Fahey)
Kit Young is Jesper Fahey, the other member of The Crows who will also be returning for Shadow and Bone Season 2. The 27-year-old English actor doesn’t seem like he is dating anyone or even if he is, he keeps it private. There seems to be no clue about his dating life.
Ben Barnes (General Kirigan)
Ben Barnes plays the bad guy, the Darkling, but uses the alias General Kirigan. He has really powerful abilities as Shadow Summoner. We will see him again in the 2nd season.
The weird thing about Barnes is that he talks about very private matters like how his parents raised him but he never mentions anything about the women he dates. So, the internet is filled with rumors about him dating this and dating that. The latest rumor was about a woman named Julianne Hough with whom he has been friends forever. They seem pretty close but it is not certain if they are dating.
Calahan Skogman (Matthias Helvar)
Calahan Skogman plays Matthias, a witch hunter. He is an official cast member for Shadow and Bone Season 2. He is 28 years old and an American. He is currently dating Danielle Galligan, a co-worker from Shadow and Bone who plays the character Nina.
