MTV's Shannara has added Spanish actress Ivana Baquero to the cast (via Variety). Baquero is best known for playing the lead in Guillermo del Toro's Pan's Labyrinth.

Shannara is an adaptation of Terry Brooks' epic fantasy series. The first book in the original Shannara trilogy, The Sword of Shannara, was the first fantasy novel to appear on the New York Times paperback bestsellers list, following its release in 1977.

Shannara's 10-episode first season will adapt The Elfstones of Shannara, the second book in the original trilogy, which Brooks feels is the best place for the adaptation to begin. Baquero will play Eretria, a cunning Rover.


Baquelo joins a cast that recently added Arrow's Manu Bennett, and also includes Poppy Drayton, Austin Butler, and Aaron Jakubenko.
