You can't bring a live-action Cloak & Dagger series to life without some essentials — chief among them the powerful dynamic between the leads themselves.

Fortunately, Freeform seems to have lucked out with young actors Aubrey Joseph and Olivia Holt, who star as the show's titular characters.

It was plain to see the chemistry already in our interview with Joseph and Holt, who admitted that their ability to play off each other well was a big reason why they were both ultimately cast on the series. After an intensive audition where the actors read together to test their believability as the blossoming couple of Tandy and Tyrone, they were also asked to improvise a short scene. According to Holt, it was a "magical" moment, and Joseph agreed: "By the end of it, we were both in tears."

Check out the video below to find out what Joseph refers to as the show's third regular character, as well as which Marvel Easter eggs fans can look forward to seeing as the first season airs!

Cloak & Dagger premieres on Freeform on June 7 at 8/7c.
