Max Charles Replaces Ben Hyland in FXs The Strain Season 2

Yeah, that just happened. Max Charles (pic below) replaces Ben Hyland as Zach Goodweather in FX’s The Strain Season 2. Carlton Cuse, who is the executive producer and showrunner of The Strain said that he needed a very well versed young actor and Max Charles is the way to go. Cuse’s full statement below. Hyland did a great job but we know familiar Charles can handle it. I am just so stoked to see Guillermo Del Toro‘s The Strain Season 2, just start filming already, I need an advanced screening for my vampire fix.

The Strain Executive Producer/Showrunner Carlton Cuse said:

We recast this part due to some specific story needs we have downstream. We are sad to see Ben go. He is a very talented actor and a wonderful person. We will all miss him and thank him for his great work.
