That was about my reaction as well, but they might portray her as fourteen or so in the series (and Teagan herself might be that age by the time they film this thing). The only thing I can think of is that they might plan on this being a long runner with the characters aging over time, so they start young with a couple of them. But that's a guess on my part. I imagine Beast Boy will be of similar age; it seems like they always cast him as younger than most of the members, like when they used him in Young Justice for some odd reason. Anyone else is a toss-up. We don't know a ton about this so far.

I've never seen anything with her, so I have no clue if she's any good. I tried to IMDB her and she's only got two prior credits under her belt, so she's definitely new. But then, so were the kids in Stranger Things, so I don't know.

They're probably hoping that the show will live on long enough that the Titans can grow up throughout the series.

I sure hope they make her skin orange then, because black Starfire is yet another pointless race change.

I have to agree Give me orange skin or cancel the show!

They should have just casted Ivanka Trump to play the role. She grew up in privilege and has orange skin

Isn't the fact that it's a human playing an alien in itself a pointless race change?

It's just pandering if she's not orange, maybe if they hadn't "promoted" Cyborg; a change that no one likes they wouldn't have to fill in their "black" quota. I'd totally love to see Cyborg here where he belongs. Horrible decisions. I hope she's orange.

How old is she anyway? She looks a bit old to be playing a teen titan, then again the comic star fire was never young looking but she seems to be pushing it, her boobs also seem small for Starfire who like Powergirl is kind of part of her character design.

13 year old Raven is an interesting but it could work.

I don't know how much hope I have for this show, titans is not something that works on a tv budget or live action

I just can't add another DC show to all the ones I'm already watching, jeeze, I never thought I'd say we have too many DC shows.

As far as the streaming service I can see it being something I subscribe to one month and binge everything that has happened once a year or so. Hell that seems to be the only way to go when everyone and their mother has a streaming service. Keep netflix and change between the others for original shows every month.

If they don't make her skin orange and Beast Boy's skin green, then what's the point? Starfire isn't black, she's orange. It'd be like introducing a white Cyborg.

Because OF COURSE we're all going to freak out that a black woman was cast to play an alien princess.

Completely predictable.

they will probably use cgi like for David Harewood's Martian Manhunter for the skin color of Starfire if not body paint

It does seem odd, especially now that we see the age difference between Raven and Starfire (and presumably the rest of the cast).

They're probably trying to latch onto Eleven's marketability (Stranger Things).

I think most comic fans would be really bothered if both Starfire and Beast Boy aren't correctly colored their runs on the show. Watch Beast Boy not be green either, and just be whatever skin color the actor they cast him as.

Beast Boy could also start out as red instead of green thanks to New 52

I think Starfire would look great with just her natural skin color with a rich purple costume, the fiery hair, maybe have make-up give her a golden glow to achieve a similar effect like Live-Action Heimdall. It'd make a more striking visuals compared to painting the actor in a alien orange and dull up the color mix.

I don't think anyone has a problem with a black actress playing Star Fire. I think people are more concerned about taking an iconic character with an iconic look and drastically changing the character.

As I said before I hope they give us a classic star fire look. But hopefully they make the mini skirt at least a little longer than what it is in the comics
