US actress Madison Iseman arrived for the Los Angeles premiere of “Knights of the Zodiac”, at the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures in Los Angeles, California, on May 10, 2023.
Mackenyu is starring as Seiya, a street orphan and the title hero of the franchise. When a mystical energy known as Cosmo awakens in him, Seiya embarks on a journey to conquer the ancient Greek armor of Pegasus and choose his side in a preternatural battle for the fate of Sienna (Iseman), a young girl who struggles to control her godly powers.
Iseman is best known for her roles in Columbia Pictures’ recent Jumanji films Welcome to the Jungle and The Next Level, which together grossed over $1.7B worldwide. She’s also been seen in New Line’s Conjuring Universe horror Annabelle Comes Home, as well as the Justin Baldoni-directed Clouds, which was the first feature-length film to launch on Disney+, and such additional titles as The F**k-It List (Netflix) and Goosebumps 2: Slappy’s Revenge (Columbia Pictures). Iseman was one of the leads of Amazon’s recent series adaptation of I Know What You Did Last Summer and was seen last year in Ryan Murphy’s American Horror Stories anthology for FX/Hulu.
Mackenyu, the son of international martial arts actor Sonny Chiba, who has made a slew of popular manga adaptations in Japan, is repped by Buchwald and Asian Cinema Entertainment.
