‘His Dark Materials’ Casting

There’s a new show on HBO called His Dark Materials, based on the book of the same name. While I don’t know much about the show itself (come back next week for that), I noticed a lot of familiar faces in the trailers, so I thought I would take a moment and look at everyone in the show, and what we might know them from.

As this is a show, they have a lot of actors whom you might recognize from other projects. I’m really only including ones that play more major roles in the show, or are bigger names outside of the show.

Lyra Belacqua > Dafne Keen > Laura (Logan)

Pantalaimon > Kit Connor > Older Reggie (Rocketman)

Mrs. Coulter > Ruth Wilson > Margaret Goff (Saving Mr. Banks) / Alice Morgan (Luther)

Will Parry > Amir Wilson > Tiuri (The Letter for the King)

Carlo Boreal > Ariyon Bakare > Darius (Carnival Row)

Colonel John Parry > Andrew Scott > Jim Moriarty (Sherlock) / The Priest (Fleabag) / Chris Gillhaney (Black Mirror)

Lee Scoresby > Lin-Manuel Miranda > Alexander Hamilton (Hamilton) / Jack (Mary Poppins Returns) / Composer (Moana)

Farder Coram > James Cosmo > Jeor Mormont (Game of Thrones) / Field Marshall Haig (Wonder Woman) / Father Christmas (The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe)

Roger Parslow > Lewin Lloyd > Sylas (Doctor Who)

Dr. Mary Malone > Simone Kirby > Irene O’Donnell (Peaky Blinders)

Jack Verhoeven > Geoff Bell > Dean (Kingsman: The Secret Service)

The Master > Clarke Peters > Det. Oscar Clemons (Jessica Jones) / Harry (John Wick) / Otis (Da 5 Bloods)

Cardinal Sturrock > Ian Peck > Curly (Peaky Blinders)

Stelmaria > Helen McCrory > Narcissa Malfoy (Harry Potter Series) / Aunt Polly Gray (Peaky Blinders)

Lord Asriel > James McAvoy > Professor X (Young X-Men movies) / Bill Denbrough (It Chapter Two) / Mr. Tumnus (The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe) / Various (Split/Glass)
