The cast is filled out by BAFTA award nominee, Freida Pinto (Slumdog Millionaire, Knight of Cups), Sindhu Vee (Sex Education, Matilda), Joshua McGuire (Cheaters, Anatomy of a Scandal), Mark Stanley (Game Of Thrones, Trigger Point), Thibault de Montalembert (Call My Agent, The King) and Samson Kayo (Bloods, The Bubble).
Additional credits include director of photography Yves Belanger (Brooklyn, Dallas Buyers Club), BAFTA award-winning Production Designer Andrew McAlpine (The Piano, An Education), Casting Director Lucy Bevan (The Batman, Belfast), Editor Gary Dollner (Fleabag, Killing Eve), Costume Designer Sinead Kidao (Small Axe, The Pursuit of Love), and Academy award nominated Hair and Make-Up Designer Daniel Phillips (The Queen, Florence Foster Jenkins).
