The Winx Sagas Sky is a horse boy because the actor is too ...

The Winx Saga, a live-action version of Netflix's Winx Club, gives the popular magical girl series an updated look. But also, yes, it also means the teen fairies party with their friends, connect with beautiful love interests.

Brian Young, best known for The Vampire Diaries, says it's always important to be able to ground the stories in real human aspects. And to ground the stories in real emotion so that they still feel they're still relatable and they still feel like something that everybody can point to. I've never experienced anything like this without the monster.

The original show's small school of cute boys was a feature of the program. The academy was renamed Red Fountain, after the in-universe knights; girls and boys alike can train as fairies or specialists, depending on whether they have powers or not. The live-action show makes the dreamy love interests a little more appealing to the younger generation than the prince-like cartoon counterparts, and makes the romance a significant part of the program.

Bloom (Abigail Cowen) and his valiant, yet oh-so-dead, horse-riding friend Sky (Danny Griffin) go on a romantic horseback ride to Skys childhood home, displaying a delicate display of emotional intelligence unlike most heroic knight-types.

Danny [Griffin] is a horse boy, according to Young. Danny loves horses so much. In season 1, he came up to us and said, What can you do to include horses in the program?

Because of Griffins fascination for horses, Victoria Bata included a line where Bloom mocks Sky for being a horse boy. A big ol horse scene for the horse boy became an imperative.

Young adds. Horses are not easy to deal with. But we just knew we had to do it.

Season 2 of Fate: The Winx Saga is now available on Netflix.
