EXCLUSIVE: The casting was finalized on 1899, the great European Netflix series from Dark designers Jantje Friese and Baran bo Odar.
Joining previously announced Emily Beecham are: Aneurin Barnard (the Goldfinch), Andreas Pietschmann (Dark), Miguel Bernardeau (Elite), Maciej Musial (The Witcher), Anton Lesser (Game of thrones), Lucas Lynggaard Tønnesen (The rain), Rosalie Craig (London Way), Clara Rosager (The rain), Maria Erwolter (The ritual), Yann Gael (Sakho and Mangane), Mathilde Ollivier (Suzerain), José Pimentão (Al Berto), Isabella Wei, Gabby Wong, Jonas Bloquet, Fflyn Edwards and Alexandre Willaume.
Production is now underway on the mystery drama series in a new state-of-the-art virtual production stage located at Babelsberg Studios in Germany. The “Volume LED” is the largest installation of this type in Europe.
The international actors, hailing from countries like Spain, Denmark, Germany, the UK and more, reflect the spirit of the 8×60 series, which is entirely pan-European, and the dialogue will be filmed in the mother tongue of each actor. The show follows a group of migrants from diverse backgrounds leaving Europe on a steamboat to start a new life in the United States. When they encounter another migrant ship adrift on the high seas, an unexpected event turns their journey into a terrifying nightmare.
Breathtaking time travel show Dark was a critical success for Netflix, running for three seasons and peaking in June of last year.
