Julian McMahon is open to a role on the Charmed reboot.
In an interview with ComicBook, the Australian actor was questioned on whether he’d return to the series.
“Oh, sure,” Julian revealed. “I haven’t seen it, but Charmed has been a big part of my life ever since I was on it, and almost every day somebody says something to me about Charmed and my character on it and how much they loved it.”
He continued: “I don’t know — this one seems interesting, and I’m excited that they’re revamping something that’s had such a great audience and such a great connection to people.
“I don’t know how long it’s been since I’ve been off the show, but it’s really resonated with people in a beautiful way.”
Julian memorably portrayed Cole Turner – aka the legendary demonic assassin Belthazor – for three seasons on the acclaimed witch drama, with a special guest appearance on the show’s seventh season.
His character was the love interest for Phoebe Halliwell (Alyssa Milano), and his main storyline included his transition from the Charmed Ones’ main adversary to their trusted ally, and their main adversary once again.
He added: “I think that’s always a credit to the characters and the work and the script or the book or the poetry or the novel, whatever it is. It’s all up for interpretation.
“That’s the beauty of it, is that we all look at it in different ways. I admired what we did on Charmed when we were doing it.
“Even with the graphics, some of the graphics that we were doing were ahead of its time in terms of what they were doing on television at the time.
“The character I got to play on that show is one of my favorites and will always be one of my favorites. It’s great to see a reinvention of it, and hope that they connect as well as we did.”
So, how do we make this happen?
The CW’s reboot of Charmed premiered on 14 October 2018.
Just like the original version, Charmed follows three sister witches, Macy, Mel and Maggie (played by Madeleine Mantock, Melonie Diaz, and Sarah Jeffery) who discover their magical ancestry.
To the underworld, they’re known as ‘The Power of Three’, the most powerful witches in the world.
They must use their abilities to vanquish demons, the forces of darkness, save the world when it’s in peril etc.
The series features an LGBTQ character in Mel, a “strong-willed feminist” lesbian in her mid-20’s with a police detective girlfriend called Soo-Jin.
