Caitriona Balfe Cast in New Netflix Series
18 Dec 2018 : News Desk
The star of U.S series ‘Outlander’ will be featured as one of the voice actors in the upcoming Netflix series ‘The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance’.

A prequel to the popular Jim Henson fantasy film ‘The Dark Crystal’, the ten part series returns to the world of “Thra”. In the new Netflix series, Balfe will voice one of the Gelfing characters, which will use puppetry instead of CGI or human actors. Caitriona Balfe rounds out a star-studded cast for the series which includes Mark Hamill, Keegan-Michael Key, Alicia Vikander, Natalie Dormer, Andy Samberg, Simon Pegg, and Helena Bonham-Carter among other.

Cindy Holland, Vice President of Original Content at Netflix said:

"I am proud to say that this may be one of the finest casts assembled from the world’s favourite TV shows and movies, and I am now even more excited for fans to come back to Thra with us, and for new viewers to discover this world for the very first time.”

Lisa Henson, CEO of The Jim Henson Company, added:

“It is humbling to see so many truly gifted actors join The Dark Crystal universe by adding their voices to Age of Resistance. As with the original film, we are now adding a voice cast of the highest calibre that will provide textures and range to the puppetry performances that are the heart of the series.”

Balfe has risen to international acclaim for her role as Claire Randall in the Starz Television series ‘Outlander’, which recently saw the Irish actress receive a fourth consecutive Golden Globe nomination.

‘The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance’ is currently in post-production and is expected to release at some point in 2019.
