As The Nevers continues filming, six more cast members have been announced.
Kiran Sawar (Black Mirror) – Harriet Kaur – a young Scottish Sikh, Harriet lives with the Orphans, but is accepted by bother her family and her betrothed. Optimistic without being naive, Harriet is determined to life her life as she planned, despite its increasing weirdness.
Elizabeth Berrington (Naked) – Lucy Best – Dirt Poor, adaptive, streetwise. There’s nothing delicate about Lucy, though she’s given up thieving to live with the Orphans. Her quick-wit and high spirits mask the pain of a tragic past.
Ella Smith (Kill Your Friends) – Desirée Blodgett – A whore, and an increasingly popular one: her power makes men tell her everything on their minds, and they come away relieved in more than one sense. Unfortunately, what she’s heard may get her killed, even though she honestly doesn’t listen to most of it. She’s devoted to her six year old son, who, bless him, never speaks.
Viola Prettejohn (The Witcher) – Myrtle Hapslich – a middle-class girl rescured from a family who cannot understand her – literally, as she can no longer speak English, or anything resembling speech. She’s thrilled to be living at the orphanage, where she’s everyone’s favorite weird little mascot.
Anna Devlin (Hanna) – Primrose Chattoway – all 16 year old Primrose wants is to be a proper, ordinary girl, and not take up too much space. Which, at ten feet tall, is hard. Most everything is either dreamy, unfair, or too embarrassing to live through.
Martyn Ford (The Intergalagtic Adventures of Max Cloud) – Nicolas Perbal, ala Odium – The quintessential henchman. He looks as unpleasant as he smells – a side-effect of his rather surprising “turn”. Will do any kind of work for anybody’s money.
