Amazon and BBC Two have cast Anna Maxwell, Mireille Enos, Lourdes Faberes and Yusuf Gatewood in their upcoming adaption of Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett’s Good Omens.
The 6-part series is currently shooting in the UK and stars Michael Sheen and David Tennant (pictured) as lead characters Arizaphale and Crowley.
Anna Maxwell Martin will play “ultimate demon” Beelzebub with the other cast additions playing the Horsemen of the Apocalypse.
Commenting on the casting, showrunner Neil Gaiman says: “We already have a stellar cast, and now Anna Maxwell Martin will be the Beelzebub of our dreams. Well, nightmares.”
Mireille Enos has been cast as War and says: “A script this clever, this smart, this current is very rare. How could I turn down playing one of the Horsemen of the Apocalypse??? Especially with the incredible group who’s come together to make it. It’s going to be FUN!”
Lourdes Faberes who will play Pollution commented: “It’s a gift for any actor to read such a brilliant story let alone be chosen to play a part in it!
“I’m thrilled to be working with this incredible cast and crew, our genius director Douglas Mackinnon and showrunner Neil Gaiman, whose writing I have always been moved by.”
Yusuf Gatewood will be playing Famine and comments: “I’m excited to be playing Famine – one of the Four Horsemen in what promises an apocalyptic adaption of Good Omens!”
As regards the Fourth Horseperson of the Apocalypse, showrunner Neil Gaiman says only, “We are hoping that Death will be played by…DEATH.”
Good Omens will launch globally on Prime Video in over 200 countries and territories in 2019 including in the UK, where it will also air on BBC Two at a later date.
