Casting News - October 8, 2019

FOX's The Moodys and Hulu's Helstrom.

  • Tom Austen, Sydney Lemmon, Elizabeth Marvel, Robert Wisdom, June Carryl, Ariana Guerra and Alain Uy will star in the upcoming Marvel drama created by Paul Zbyszewski.
  • Austen (Grantchester, The Royals) will play Daimon Helstrom, a professor of ethics who moonlights as an exorcist. He has no illusions about saving a world he has no patience for; he just hopes he can help a few of the people closest to him. In his battle against a hidden world, he is determined to root out demons as they arise, and will not stop until they're vanquished.
  • Lemmon (Succession, Fear the Walking Dead) will play Ana Helstrom. By day, she runs a successful auction house and suffers no fools, but her true interest lies in hunting down those who hurt others. Traumatized by her father as a child, she is driven to rid the world of those like him, even as she secretly worries her father will return.
  • Marvel (Homeland, Unbelievable) will play Victoria Helstrom. Plagued by demons both real and imagined, she has been institutionalized for twenty years. While she struggles to be herself, she hopes to repair her relationship with her children.
  • Wisdom (Ballers, The Alienist) will play Caretaker, a guardian of knowledge about the occult. He uses his knowledge and his relationship with Ana to help keep demonic forces at bay.
  • Carryl (Mindhunter) will play Dr. Louise Hastings, a psychologist with a strong faith but an open mind. She is the head of the psychiatric hospital where Victoria is being monitored. She has watched over the Helstrom family for years, caring for them as best she can.
  • Guerra (Raising Dion, Insatiable) will play Gabriella Rosetti, a woman balancing logic and faith. She arrives from the Vatican to help Daimon and Hastings uncover cases of demonic possession. She wants to save everyone she can, including Daimon.
  • Uy (The Passage, True Detective) will play Chris Yen, Ana's business partner and her closest friend - some would say surrogate brother. He carries out the bulk of the auction house's responsibilities and assists Ana with whatever she needs.
  • François Arnaud has joined the cast of the upcoming holiday event series (formerly A Moody Christmas) starring Denis Leary and Elizabeth Perkins. He previously starred for three seasons in Showtime's The Borgias, two seasons in NBC's Midnight, Texas and one season in Lifetime's UnREAL.
  • He will play Dan, the youngest Moody kid, the creative one and also a neurotic romantic. Brimming with potential and a graduate of Northwestern, he is a freelance photographer, currently working as an assistant on a catalog shoot. He might be charming and sweet but is not exactly setting the world on fire and seems incapable of committing to anything long-term.
