The actor: Julie Benz got her start as an actress when she was still in her teens, shifting back and forth between movies and TV and racking up a wide variety of credits in a relatively short amount of time. But it was her work with Joss Whedon—first on Buffy The Vampire Slayer, then on Angel—that put her on the map. Since then, Benz has remained a stalwart in genre projects, appearing in sci-fi series (Defiance) and superhero shows (No Ordinary Family). She’s also earned considerable acclaim for her stint on Dexter and has also turned up in more than a few horror films, the most recent of which, Havenhurst, is out now.

Iwan Rheon was announced to play Black Bolts's brother, Maximus the Mad, in the TV series The Inhumans, and what a great choice if you are looking for a psychotic killer. You know him best as Ramsay Bolton/Snow in Game of Thrones, the castration expert and torturer of Theon Greyjoy.
Oh yes, this makes me happy. Maximus is my favorite Inhuman, and one could consider him with Batman level intellect combined with some form of mind control. Let us take note, he is not necessarily evil. But he does believe that the Inhumans are the next level of species, and should rule the planet with disregard to any human life. He kind of reminds me of oldschool Magneto.
For awhile now, we have been dealing with the Inhumans in the show Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but the actual royal family has not yet been referenced, presumably because they were saving them for their own show. »

In the eight-episode straight-to-series drama, Maximus is a clever and charming Inhuman that is fiercely devoted to the people of Attilan, especially his brother, the king — though he harbors an intense desire to wear the crown himself. Rheon will star as Maximus.
