  1. Think Romeo and Juliet—except Romeo is an alien named Roman (harhar). Roman and a human named Emery fall for each other, and it's all very you and me against the world (i.e., Roman's friends and Emery's schoolmates).

  2. As Roman, Matt Lanter returns to TV after playing 90210’s Liam, who in his own words is "the worst dater. Of. All. Time." P.S. Read our full interview with him in our March 2013 issue! P.P.S. Doesn't he look so cute in the photo above?
  3. The aliens are called Atrians or Tatties because of their tattoos. (Duh.)

  4. Playing Emery is the lovely Aimee Teegarden of Friday Night Lights and Prom.

  5. Since high school romance isn't complete without a love triangle, Grey Damon (Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters, The Secret Circle) joins the party as the human Grayson. Check out our exclusive interview with him on this space soon!
  6. It's a love fest for this love triangle.
  7. But Star-Crossed is not just about romance—it's also about discrimination, acceptance, and survival.
  8. The kids who play six-year-old Roman and Emery are the cutest.

  9. You'll spot other familiar faces like Malese Jow (Jeremy's ex, Anna, on The Vampire Diaries) as Emery's friend, Julia...
  10. Natalie Hall (Hanna's stepsister, Kate, on Pretty Little Liars) as queen bee Taylor...
  11. Titus Makin, Jr. (David the Warbler on Glee) as Emery's friend, Lukas...
  12. Brina Palencia (the easygoing girl who got eaten by zombies on The Walking Dead season four) as Roman's sister, Sophia...
  13. Chelsea Gilligan (who you might’ve spotted on How I Met Your Mother and Victorious) as Roman’s Atrian friend, Teri...
  14. And Greg Finley (bad boy Jack on The Secret Life of the American Teenager) as Roman's Atrian friend, Drake.
  15. Star-Crossed is from the same network who brought you The Vampire Diaries, The Carrie Diaries, Arrow, Supernatural, and The Originals. So you're pretty much in good hands. *fingers crossed*

  Star-Crossed premieres tomorrow at 8 pm on ETC.
