Mayfair Witches Cast and Characters Guide
After the successful adaptation of AMC Anne Rice‘s 1994 movie Interview with the vampire in a TV series, the gothic novelist is further expanding her dark world of urban fantasy on the same streaming platform with her new show, Witches of Mayfair. Premieres January 8, 2023, Anne Rice’s Witches of Mayfair developed from the literary trilogy Lives of the Mayfair Witches. The book series shares a crossover of characters with The Vampire Chronicles (the series it inspired Interview with the vampire). It’s been Rice’s dream for viewers to experience the expanded, overlapping worlds of both series, and it’s happening with such beautiful production, as we can see Interview with the vampire and the way the streets of New Orleans and the characters glow with golden seduction. Since AMC is behind both projects, it won’t be surprising if Witches of Mayfair offers the same dark and fantastical experience. To give Anne Rice fans an early entry into this seedy world of witches, demons, and all the weird stuff in between, here’s a Witches of Mayfair Cast and characters guide.
Alexandra Daddario as Dr. Rowan Fielding
Alexandra Daddario play the main character Witches of Mayfair, dr. Rowan Fielding. When Dr. Fielding discovers that his estranged mother has died, he becomes the heir to the Mayfair family fortune. The discovery of his dark power leads Fielding into a magical underworld as he finds out the hard way who he can and cannot trust.
Daddario is no stranger to fantasy, having started his playing career Annabeth Chase in the Percy Jackson movies. Since then, she has held a variety of roles ranging from horror movie scream queen to comedy guest appearances. One of her most recent roles as Rachel Patton in the first season of the HBO series The White Lotus earned Daddario a 2022 Emmy nomination for Best Supporting Actress. Obviously, this won’t be Daddario’s first time starring in a high-profile series, and viewers can’t wait to see her haunt the screen.
Jack Huston as Lasher
jack huston plays the demonic entity Lasher, linked to the Mayfairs for generations. Lasher has the ability to shape-shift, and while he is bound to serve the Mayfair family, his rookie counterpart has a history of manipulating witches into dire circumstances for his own benefit. Fans of the book series will expect Lasher to play a major role in the disappearance of the Mayfair characters.
Jack Huston is known for playing Wulfric outsider and Pete Musane a American Hustle. To see him in his sinister role a Before the warit’s clear that Huston is more than capable of playing a villain.
Harry Hamlin as Cortland Mayfair
Harry Hamlin is Cortland Mayfair, the powerful patriarch who currently rules the Mayfair family. He is hungry for money and power, with an insatiable appetite for more of everything.
Hamlin is most famous for playing Perseus in the 1981s The clash of the titansJim Cutler a mad menfor which he was nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award, and Michael Kuzak a THE LAW, which earned him a Golden Globe nomination. Hamlin has had appearances in many major series, including law and order, gleei shameless. Familiar with playing rich and powerful men, Hamlin’s portrayal of Cortland Mayfair will seem effortless.
Tongayi Chirisa as Ciprien Grieve
We send Chirisa he plays Ciprien Grieve, a new character created for the show. Ciprien is a fusion of the two characters from the series of novels: Michael Curry and Aaron Lightner. Rowan revived Michael after he almost died from drowning. He shares something with the Mayfairs, the acquaintance of Lasher, whom he saw once as a child and never forgot. Aaron Lightner is a member of a secret society and is drawn to the witches of Mayfair. The trailer shows Cyprien guiding Rowan through his discovery of this other magical world, and there may be romance if the TV series follows the books.
Tongayi Chirisa worked alongside Jack Huston in the film Before the war. He was also in comedy Palm Springs and has had recurring roles in a few television series, including iZombie, The Jim Gaffigan Showi Crusoe.
Annabeth Gish as Deirdre Mayfair
Annabeth Gish she plays Deirdre Mayfair, Rowan’s estranged mother. According to the book series, Deirdre grew up in a controlling and abusive household and was institutionalized for her mental health conditions. Her conception of Rowan was due to a rape by Cortland Mayfair, and after she was released from the mental hospital, she spent the rest of her life silently trapped in her mind until she died. Since Rowan’s story in the TV series begins with the death of her mother, it is very likely that viewers will see Deirdre in flashbacks, background scenes, and/or in spirit form.
Annabeth Gish is best known for her roles in 80s and 90s movies Mystic Pizza, SLC Punk!i double jeopardy. She is no stranger to supernatural drama, as she played Dr. Sarah Gunning a midnight massMrs. Dudley a The Haunting of Hill Houseand Monica Reyes a The X files. Gish belongs to the on-screen world of witches and otherworldly entities, so her appearance on the show is fitting.
Beth Grant as Carlotta Mayfair
Beth Grant she plays Carlotta Mayfair, one of Mayfair’s oldest witches. Carlotta was the catalyst for the death of her two sisters, Stella and Antha, and was the reason why Deirdre sat in a coma for most of her life. She is a hateful and jealous woman, and viewers will be delighted to see her portrayed by such a talented and seasoned actress.
Beth Grant has been around the block. He has played in everything since Little Miss Sunshine a Willy’s Wonderland. She played Kitty Farmer Donnie Darko and the mother of Carla Jean a There is no country for old men. Her most recent recurring television roles include Hulu’s doll face i The Mindy Project.
Other recurring cast members include Erica Gimpel as Ellie Mayfair, Rowan’s adoptive mother, and Jen Richards as Jojo. I will see Witches of Mayfair on AMC this January 8, 2023.
