The cast of Netflix's Umbrella Academy is officially taking shape.
After Ellen Page joined Umbrella Academy earlier this month, five new cast members have now signed on to the series.
Umbrella Academy follows the estranged members of a dysfunctional family of superheroes (aka the Umbrella Academy): The Monocle, Spaceboy, The Kraken, The Rumor, The Séance, Number Five, The Horror and The White Violin. Together, they work to solve their father’s mysterious death while coming apart at the seams because of their divergent personalities and abilities.
So, which actors will help bring Gerard Way's beloved graphic novel to life? Click through to the next slide to find out.
Hopper, who is best known for his role as Game of Thrones' Dickon Tarly, will be joining the series. He will be playing Luther, whose superhero code name is Spaceboy.
Luther who was groomed by his father from an early age to be the leader of the Umbrella Academy — a responsibility that has always weighed heavily on him. He is resilient, a workaholic and possesses the ability of heightened physical strength. Upstanding to a fault, Luther always tries to do the right thing, even if that means putting others before himself.
Allison is beautiful, elegant and a formerly world-famous movie star who possesses the power of suggestion — anything she says aloud comes to pass. Her life seems perfect from the outside, but her ability has undermined every relationship she’s ever had. With her career on the decline and her marriage in shambles, she refuses to use her power as she seeks a more authentic life.
David Castaneda (End of Watch, Jane the Virgin) will be playing Diego, also known as The Kracken.
The Kracken is a skilled, intense vigilante that has a real problem with authority. He isn't as naturally strong or smart as his siblings, so he’s worked three times as hard for everything. Believing he should have been the leader of his family instead of his brother, he carries a massive chip on his shoulder that makes him hostile to just about everyone.
Misfits alum Robert Sheehanis headed to the series, where he will be playing Klaus, aka The Séance.
The Séance is a drug addict and lovable mess and yet, if you ask him, any day now his life is going to turn around. He’s a classic “middle child” — a disarming pleaser who is seemingly everyone’s friend but will rob you blind without thinking twice.
Aidan Gallagher (Modern Family, Nicky, Ricky, Dicky, & Dawn) will play Number Five/The Boy.
The Boy appears to be a 13-year-old boy, but in actuality is a 58-year-old man trapped in the body of a child. He doesn’t suffer fools and is the smartest person in the room. He’s also haunted by the things he’s seen and done and is on the verge of losing his grip on reality.
