A trio of latest forged individuals had been additionally published as of late by way of Variety. Danny Sapani, whose previous television credits include Harlots, MotherFatherSon, and The Bastard Executioner, will portray Jacob Keyes, captain of the Pillar of Autumn in Halo: Combat Evolved; Olive Gray, who has appeared in Dark Mon£y, Home From Home, Year Million, and Eastenders, will play his daughter, Miranda Keyes, a supporting character in Halo 2 and 3; and Charlie Murphy, of Peaky Blinders, Happy Valley, and Love/Hate fame, will play Makee, an orphaned human raised by the Covenant who shares its contempt for humanity. (And also, I’m pretty sure, a character created exclusively for the series.)
(All three actors have appeared almost or entirely exclusively on British television, by the way, although Sapani has had small roles in films including The Last Jedi and Black Panther, so apologies to UK readers if I’m off-base on any of the “best known for” credits.)
Showtime’s Halo series is expected to debut in 2021. There’s still no Halo page on the Showtime website, but you can keep up with all we know about it right here.
