Amazon Studios has announced that Amarah-Jae St. Aubyn and Grace Saif will join the cast of Anansi Boys, the series adaption of Neil Gaiman’s best-selling novel.
The studio has also revealed their respective character descriptions, which are as follows:
Amarah-Jae St. Aubyn has been cast as Rosie Noah, a teacher and Fat Charlie’s fiancée. She is “cheerful, wise, good-humoured, and kind; if it wasn’t for her terrifying mother, she’d be perfect.”
Grace Saif has been cast as Detective Constable Daisy Day, “who finds herself deep into several intersecting police cases, including a murder. She’s smart, efficient, determined, and very funny.”
Neil Gaiman commented on the casting: “When you are casting something on the scale of Anansi Boys you need female leads who are as accomplished, charming, and brilliant as, well, Malachi Kirby in both his incarnations. Amarah-Jae St. Aubyn and Grace Saif are those women. [They’re] both funny, honest, brilliant actresses, and you will fall in love with both of them.”
