Outside of the premise for the series, little is known about the story for season one of The Nevers, still less the actors that have been cast. The only official casting news came back in April when Deadline reported that Laura Donnelly had been cast in the lead role of Amalia True.
However, it seems we may have caught a break.
While an official statement has yet to be made, our sources say that James Norton has been cast in an as yet unspecified role.
Whipsers that the English actor had joined The Nevershave been swirling about, but only now do we have a little more to go on. The social media account of a PR & Marketing Manager for Audi posted a picture of James attending an event last month with tags for two of the actors television shows. #McMafia#Grantchester
And The Nevers.
Norton, perhaps best known for his role as Sidney Chambers in ITV's Grantchester, recently ended his time on the series where he spent four seasons playing the crime-solving vicar Sidney Chambers. His other TV credits includes McMafia, War & Peace and Happy Valley.
