Know everything about Tevin actor Rome Flynn (real name) below, along with the cast's age & Instagram.
Raising Dion is a Netflix original superhero drama series set in the United States that premiered on October 4, 2019. It is based on a 2015 comic book by Dennis Liu and a short film of the same name. Netflix renewed the series for a second season in January 2020, which premiered on February 1, 2022.
Raising Dion portrays the story of Nicole (Alisha Wainwright), a mother who raises her son Dion after her husband Mark dies. When Dion begins to display many mystical, superhero-like talents, the regular dramas of parenting a son as a single mother are enhanced.
Nicole now has to keep her son's powers hidden with the help of Mark's best friend Pat, as well as protect Dion from those who want to take advantage of him while discovering where his skills came from.
Who is Tevin Wakefield on Raising Dion Season 2?
Tevin Wakefield played by Rome Flynn (Instagram: @romeflynn) is a supporting character who first appeared in Raising Dion's second season premiere. He is a former long-distance runner and Olympic track coach who becomes Dion's trainer and mentor.
Nicole meets Tevin before Dion's training session in the first episode. Tevin proves himself to be the ideal candidate for a trainer at BIONA, despite the restrictions of his talents, by being able to employ his skills in both defense and offense.
Throughout the second season, Tevin forms bonds with Dion and Janelle and trains them. He meets Dion and Nicole and strikes up a friendship with each of them. After that, we get to see who he is as a person, rather than just a superhero.
Nicole discovers Tevin is superhuman when she sees him for the first time and treats him cruelly because of her previous experience with Pat. She becomes even more suspicious of him after learning that he is her son's trainer. However, over time, she comes to believe that he is the ideal match for Dion and begins to see him favorably.
Nicole eventually falls for Tevin, and we get to see tiny moments of cheesiness between them. However, Dion always becomes more important to them than their relationship, despite the fact that they had met a few times.
