Casting News - October 7, 2019

HBO Max's The Flight Attendant and Starz's American Gods.

  • Ashley Reyes and Herizen Guardiola have joined the cast of the drama's upcoming third season. Reyes is a relative newcomer. Guardiola starred in Netflix's one-season drama The Get Down. She next stars in USA's upcoming drama Dare Me.
  • Reyes will play Cordelia, who was a whip-smart but rebellious college dropout facing mounting legal bills and student debt before Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane) arrived in her life. Now, she road trips across the country meeting his eccentric friends and helping him with technology, unaware that she's caught up in a divine battle for the soul of America.
  • Guardiola will play Oshun, the Yoruban goddess of love, purity, fertility who uplifted and empowered the enslaved people who built America. While known as the maintainer of balance, and the mother of sweetness, she is formidable and known for her spiritual strength. She and her fellow Orishas play a mysterious but vital role in Shadow's (Ricky Whittle) spiritual awakening.
  • Michiel Huisman will play the male lead on the upcoming drama starring Kaley Cuoco. He previously starred for four seasons in HBO's Treme, two seasons in HBO's Game of Thrones and in the first season of Netflix's The Haunting of Hill House. He has also recurred on ABC's Nashville and BBC America's Orphan Black.
  • He will play Alex, a charming and wealthy businessman, who runs into some serious bad luck in Bangkok and ends up sticking with Cassie (Cuoco) longer than expected.
