The BBC and HBO announced the cast of the upcoming Casual Vacancy miniseries this morning.
The Casual Vacancy cast consists of Michael Gambon, Kelley Hawes, Rory Kinnear, Monica Dolan, Julia McKenzie, and Abigail Lawrie amongst many others.
Gambon will play Howard Mollison (owner of the Pagford delicatessen) and McKenzie will play his wife Shirley. The former is an interesting choice for the production since he is an alum of J.K. Rowling’s original series Harry Potter. He played Dumbledore beginning in Prisoner of Azkaban.
Howard’s son Miles will be portrayed by Rufus Jones, and his wife Samantha Mollison will be played by Kelley Hawes.
Rory Kinnear will play Barry Fairbrother, and Kelley Forsyth will play Terri Weedon.
Abigail Lawrie will play Terri’s daughter Krystal Weedon. Monica Dolan will play Tess Wall, and Simon McBurney will play her husband Colin Wall.
Richard Glover will play Simon Price and Marie Critchley will portray his wife Ruth Price. Michelle Austin will play Kay Bawden.
In a statement, the BBC says that additional cast members such as “Parminder, Vikram and Sukhvinder Jawanda, Gaia Bawden, and other key characters including Mary Fairbrother, Maureen Lowe, Lexie and Libby Mollison, and Andrew and Paul Price” will soon be announced.
The Casual Vacancy miniseries begins filming July 7 in South West England.
The series’ synopsis reads, “The Casual Vacancy centres on Pagford, a seemingly idyllic English village with a cobbled market square and ancient abbey. Behind the pretty façade, however, is a town at war: rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils.”
Carnival Row is fantasy that fucks.
