Netflix finishes casting for ‘Heartstopper’ with Yasmin Finney – Deadline

EXCLUSIVE: Netflix has completed the casting for Heartstopper, Eight-part adaptation by See-Saw Films of Alice Oseman’s graphic novel YA of the same name.

Yasmin Finney, a 17-year-old black British trans woman who was recently cast as Billy Porter’s directorial debut, joins Joe Locke and Kit Connor. What if?. They will be joined by newcomers William Gao, Corinna Brown, Kizzy Edgell, Cormac Hyde-Corrin, Tobie Donovan and Rhea Norwood. Game of thrones actor Sebastian Croft also stars.

Heartstopper tells the story of Nick and Charlie (Locke and Connor), two British teenagers in a boys’ high school. Charlie, an eccentric and openly gay thinker, and Nick, a cheerful and tender-hearted rugby player, are one day made to sit down together. They quickly become friends, and soon Charlie falls hard for Nick, even though he doesn’t think he has a chance. But love surprisingly works, and Nick is more interested in Charlie than either of them thought.

The cast was selected after casting director Daniel Edwards’ exhaustive open audition process, in which 10,000 people took part. Oseman said, “We have found a group of incredibly talented young actors who are all very passionate about bringing this story to life. I got to spend a lot of time with them talking about the characters, their arcs and their importance in the story, and I know every actor will shine.

See-Saw Films executive producer Patrick Walters added: “Heartstopper is a show that celebrates individuality, promotes acceptance and most of all puts a smile on your face. This cast does just that, bringing heart, humor and complexity to their roles.

The series is written by Oseman and directed by Sherlock and Doctor Who helmer Euros Lyn. The executive producers are Walters, Iain Canning and Emile Sherman for See-Saw. Lyn is also an executive producer, as are Jamie Laurenson and Hakan Kousetta, who left See-Saw earlier this year to launch 60Forty Films. Zorana Piggott produces.

Heartstopper was originally launched as a web comic via Tumblr and Tapas before being subsequently published by Hachette Children’s Group. The series includes three volumes of books, a fourth of which is expected to be released in May.
