1899 Cast: Meet The Actors Of This Multilingual Mystery

The furrowed forehead and madness in the eyes are telltale signs that a person has watched the German Netflix series Dark. Jantje Friese and Baran bo Odar’s 2017–2020 time-travel mystery, which required a flip-chart of graphs and diagrams to understand, was a cult hit for Netflix and led to a contract between the two companies. The year is 1899 (for a review without spoilers, click here). Friese assured Deadline that she and Odar’s forthcoming Netflix series, “1899,” would be “something unique and wild and insane” because of their previous collaboration on “Dark.”

The writers and directors have promised that the new eight-part period drama would not be a rehash, but that it will instead provide viewers with an entertaining riddle that hearkens back to the pair’s mystery roots. It’s a wrap! Players can’t stop playing 1899 on their screens.

The story begins as a bilingual upstairs-downstairs tale about class and secrets aboard a steamship traveling from England to America at the turn of the 20th century, but it quickly evolves into Something Else. Featuring a large cast of actors from Dark, the Danish dystopian series The Rain, and many others, you may recognize some of these faces. In this article we will discuss about 1899 cast.

1899 Cast

Emily Beecham As Maura Franklin

Though Pietschmann has been a regular on German TV since the 1990s, his breakthrough role as Konny von Brendorp in the 2007 action criminal thriller GSG-9 brought him widespread recognition. Starring alongside Udo Kier in the children’s fantasy series 4 Against Z and alongside Lars Mickelsen, in the action drama,

The Team are just two of his many on-screen performances.

Rosalie Craig As Virginia Wilson

Rosalie Craig recently starred opposite Michelle Dockery and Sienna Miller in Netflix’s Anatomy of a Scandal, alongside Catherine Tate in The Nan Movie, and has appeared in numerous supporting TV roles, from Endeavour to Father Brown, Truth Seekers, and more, all the way back to her role as the worldly Mrs. Wilson in 1899. The film and stage actor starred as the title character in a production of As You Like It at London’s National Theatre in 2016.

Clara Rosager As Tove

Clara Rosager, a Dane who played Sarah in the dystopian thriller The Rain, is no stranger to Netflix’s wild European genre (opposite her 1899 co-star Lucas Lynggaard Tonnesen, see below). In addition to her role as Miss Sweden in Misbehaviour, Rosager has appeared as Jean in the comic book adaption Morbius and as Nadya in the Italian financial thriller Devils, both of which are set in 2020.

Anton Lesser As Henry Singleton

Anton Lesser is a veteran of both film and theatre, but he is probably best known outside of the UK for his roles as the evil maester Qyburn in Game of Thrones and as CSI Bright in the smash ITV police thriller Endeavour.

A part of the 1899 cast.

The Pin As Darrel And Lachlan

Ben Ashenden and Alexander Owen, better known as the British comedy team The Pin, lighten the mood of this odd incident with some good old-fashioned sniping and wolf jokes (also seen recently in Jurassic World: Dominion). They play a couple of Kerberos engine room workers, and they add a pleasant and suitably odd note to 1899’s stew. A part of the 1899 cast.
