Netflix’s fantasy series The Sandman, based on the acclaimed Neil Gaiman comic, has cast Irish actors Ruairi O’Connor, Ann Skelly, Laurence O’Fuarain and Jack Gleeson in its upcoming second season.

Ruairi O’Connor, star of Handsome Devil and the upcoming Irish feature King Frankie, will play Orpheus, described as “poet, musician, and oracle, and the only child of Dream and the muse, Calliope. Orpheus is an idealistic, romantic, young man – and very much his father’s son – until tragedy strikes and reveals to him the true nature of love.”

Ann Skelly, best known for her roles in Kissing Candice and Rose Plays Julie, will play Nuala, opposite British actor Douglas Booth as Cluracan: “Nuala and Cluracan are royal emissaries from the court of Faerie; siblings who are opposites in every way. Nuala is responsible, empathetic, and principled. Cluracan is an impulsive rogue who lives for pleasure They disagree about everything, except their devotion to one another.”

Laurence O’Fuarain, recently seen in The Witcher: Blood Origin, will play Thor: “With his hammer Mjollnir, Thor is brusque, rude, and driven entirely by his appetites – for food and drink, for battle, and for sex.”

Jack Gleeson, best known as King Joffrey in HBO’s Game of Thrones and recently seen in In The Land of Saints & Sinners, will play Puck: “a malevolent hobgoblin who serves as the royal jester to King Auberon of Faerie. Puck is fascinated by mortals and enjoys nothing more than making sport of them for his own amusement. He’s also the inspiration for Shakespeare’s Puck in A Midsummer Night’s Dream.”

Also joining the cast for Season 2 are Freddie Fox, Clive Russell, Indya Moore, and Steve Coogan. They join returning cast members Tom Sturridge, Kirby, Mason Alexander Park, Donna Preston, Patton Oswalt, Vivienne Acheampong, Gwendoline Christie, Jenna Coleman, Ferdinand Kingsley, Stephen Fry, Asim Chaudhry, Sanjeev Bhaskar, Vanesu Samunyai and Razane Jammal.

Based on the award-winning DC comic series written by Neil Gaiman, The Sandman is a rich, character-driven blend of myth and dark fantasy woven together over the course of ten epic chapters following Dream’s many adventures. Developed and executive produced by Gaiman, showrunner Allan Heinberg, and David S. Goyer, The Sandman is Produced by Warner Bros. Television.
