“The Sandman” series at Netflix has revealed its main cast. Tom Sturridge, Gwendoline Christie, Vivienne Acheampong, Boyd Holbrook, Charles Dance, Asim Chaudhry, and Sanjeev Bhaskar are set to star in the series.
Series creator Neil Gaiman officially revealed the cast from his Twitter account, "There. A whole set of tweets written just before bed and set to go out when I'm fast asleep. I'm vaguely worried that I've mistimed them, but too late now. Here are the first seven members of the #Sandman cast to be announced officially. Seven down, hundreds to go," said Gaiman.
Tom Sturridge is DREAM, Lord of the Dreaming.
Gwendoline Christie will star as Lucifer, ruler of Hell. She is best known to fans for her roles on “Game of Thrones.”
Vivienne Acheampong will play Lucienne, chief librarian and trusted guardian of Dream’s realm.
Boyd Holbrook will play The Corinthian, an escaped nightmare who wishes to taste all that the world has in store.
Charles Dance will play Roderick Burgess, described as a Charlatan, blackmailer, and magician. He also blackmails people. And he captures the Lord of Dreams while trying to do something else.
Asim Chaudhry will play Abel described as the first victim.
Sanjeev Bhaskar will play Cain, described as the first predator, locked in a monstrous double act.
The series is based on “The Sandman” comic book series created for DC by Neil Gaiman. It follows the people and places affected by Morpheus (Sturridge), the Dream King, as he mends the cosmic — and human — mistakes he’s made during his vast existence.
Neil Gaiman is co-writing the series with David S. Goyer and Allan Heinberg. All three are also executive producers, with Heinberg serving as showrunner. Warner Bros. Television is the studio.
“The Sandman” was ordered to series at Netflix in 2019 with a 10-episode commitment.
