Actor Madison Iseman portrays the role of Sienna/Athena in KNIGHTS OF THE ZODIAC, an adaptation of the Saint Seiya anime. At WonderCon, Iseman revealed Athena was going to be blonde like the manga version but she pushed for the purple-haired goddess and won. The KNIGHTS OF THE ZODIAC star hopes fans are happy with the choice.
The live-action adaptation of the Japanese manga Saint Seiya is coming to the big screen on May 12 starring Iseman along with Famke Janssen, Sean Bean, Mark Dacascos, Nick Stahl, Diego Tinoco (On My Block) and Japanese-American actor Mackenyu as Seiya.
Based on the international anime sensation, KNIGHTS OF THE ZODIAC brings the Saint Seiya saga to the big screen in live-action for the first time. Seiya (Mackenyu), a headstrong street teen, spends his time fighting for cash while he searches for his abducted sister. When one of his fights unwittingly taps into mystical powers, he never knew he had, Seiya finds himself thrust into a world of warring saints, ancient magical training, and a reincarnated goddess who needs his protection. If he’s to survive, he will need to embrace his destiny and sacrifice everything to take his rightful place among the Knights of the Zodiac.
