Characters on the show

For more info, check the separate websites Pride & Runaways

Runaways

Rhenzy Feliz as Alex Wilder: A nerd who longs to reunite with his childhood friends.

Lyrica Okano as Nico Minoru: A Wiccan who isolates herself with her gothic appearance. Unlike the comics, Nico does not summon the Staff of One through self-harm. Okano said this was tweaked, “for good reason” as there would be “a lot of young teenagers watching the show and we don’t want to promote anything like self-harm because that’s serious.” She added that an element of drawing blood would still be involved.

Virginia Gardner as Karolina Dean: A model who is burdened by her privileged upbringing and wants to pursue her own desires.

Ariela Barer as Gert Yorkes: A riot grrrl and social justice warrior.

Gregg Sulkin as Chase Stein: A high school lacrosse player who is often dismissed as a dumb jock but displays bits of brilliance in engineering. Sulkin and the writers wanted the character to be “more layered” than the comics, and Sulkin felt that Chase was the most changed of the Runaways from the source material.

Allegra Acosta as Molly Hernandez: The youngest member of the Runaways who is characterized by her positive attitude.

Old Lace, a genetically engineered Deinonychus telepathically linked with Gert Yorkes, appears in the series. The character is portrayed by a puppet that was operated by six people, including one person pumping air through the puppet to show the dinosaur breathing. Barer called the puppet “incredible … You see her emotions. We don’t make use of that.”
