There’s no embarassment in this casting! Game of Thrones starlet Hannah Waddingham has actually signed up with the cast of Syfy’s Krypton
Waddingham– who played the pious, bell-ringing Septa Unella on the HBO hit– will play Jax-Ur in the Superman-universe series.
From the studio: “Formerly one of Krypton’s greatest scientists with deep ties to Krypton’s past, Jax-Ur is now determined to bring radical change to Krypton as leader of the underground terrorist organization, Black Zero.”
Fun truth: Jax-Ur has actually typically been male. Waddingham is the very first female to play the character.
The Krypton cast is forming up to be rather fascinating, specifically with female lead Georgina Campbell sensational with a breakout efficiency in the current season of Black Mirror(in the episode “Hang the DJ”).
Krypton is set “years before the Superman legend we know, when the House of El was shamed and ostracized. This one-hour drama follows the Man of Steel’s grandfather (Cameron Cuffe) as he brings hope and equality to Krypton, turning a planet in disarray into one worthy of giving birth to the greatest Super Hero ever known.”
Krypton is set to premiere March 21 on Syfy.Related youtube video: (not from post)
