More cast members have been announced for Netflix’s upcoming adaptation of Harlan Coben’s “Stay Close”. The upcoming 8-episode series has already been announced to star Cush Jumbo (“The Good Wife”), James Nesbitt (“Bloody Sunday”) and Richard Armitage (“The Stranger”) in the three lead roles, with Sarah Parish (“Bancroft”) also cast.
But now more cast have been announced including Eddie Izzard (“Ocean’s Thirteen”), Jo Joyner (“Eastenders”), Daniel Francis (“Once Upon a Time”), Andi Osho (“Line of Duty”) and Bethany Antonia (“Get Even”). Details of their parts are shown below.
With trademark thrills, gripping suspense, and a crime to solve, Stay Close questions how much you really know someone. Three people living comfortable lives each conceal dark secrets that even the closest to them would never suspect; Megan (Jumbo), a working mother of three; Ray (Armitage), the once promising documentary photographer, now stuck in a dead-end job pandering to celebrity-obsessed rich kids, and Broome (Nesbitt), a detective who’s unable to let go of a missing person’s cold case. Lorraine (Parish), an old friend from Megan’s past, delivers some shocking news which will impact on all three characters. As the past comes back to haunt them, threatening to ruin their lives and the lives of those around them, what will be their next move?
- Eddie Izzard is Harry – a small-town lawyer and defender of the disenfranchised residents of Livingstone – who has been like a father figure to Megan over the years
- Jo Joyner is Erin Cartright, a quick witted, highly observant Police Detective and Broome’s ex-wife
- Daniel Francis is Dave Shaw a doting father to his three children and engaged to Megan
- Bethany Antonia is Megan and Dave’s eldest daughter Kayleigh Shaw
- Rachel Andrews is Bea, Kayleigh’s best friend
- Poppy Gilbert and Hyoie O’Grady play Barbie and Ken, a seemingly sweet young couple
- Andi Osho is cast as Simona, a retired ex-army sergeant who’s now pregnant with her first child.
