Abubaker Salim Eyes Kain Role In Legacy Of Kain TV Adaptation

Actor and director Abubaker Salim has revealed that he’s interesting in portraying Kain in a possible Legacy of Kain TV adaptation.

Speaking with VGC, Salim, who directed tales of Kenzera: AU and featured in HBO Max’s Raise by Wolves, made it clear he’s quite the fact of Kain and vampires in general, and would love to take on the role in TV adaptation.

I’d love to play Kain in Legacy of Kain. I think there’s something really, really cool about Kain and his journey. I’ve always got a soft spot for vampires as well. Give me Kain. Give me Kain in the Blood Omen times, that’s my jam.

Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain was released in 1996 and developed by Silicon Knights and directed by Denis Dyack, who would later go on to helm another cult classic, Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem. Future Uncharted scribe Amy Hennig directed 1999’s Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver, with 2003’s Legacy of Kain: Defiance being the most recent instalment.

While a Legacy of Kain revival hasn’t happened yet, Crystal Dynamics released a survey in 2022 to garner feedback about the series, sparking out that it may yet bring it back from the dead.
