All cast and their characters

With the initial announcement, Elisabeth Moss joining as the lead actress was disclosed.

In an interview with RTE, Moss revealed that her role was one of the most challenging ones, given that she had to work on developing a British accent to bring authenticity, which she had been doing months before filming began.

She also disclosed that she practiced action and stunt choreography. Unfortunately, while the show was being filmed in Istanbul, Moss fractured her spine, causing her to lie on a roof for two hours.

Her strong will and dedication helped her to bounce back on the set to get the job done. Moss will be playing Imogene Salter. Here’s the list of the main and recurring cast for Hulu’s spy thriller:
