Meet Netflix’s The Stranger cast - from Richard Armitage to Jennifer Saunders

Meet the cast of The Stranger

Emmy Griffiths

Netflix's new series The Stranger is the show of the moment, which fans admitting to binge-watching the entire mystery drama - where a total stranger creates chaos by telling people intimate details about their loved ones - all in one go. In the first episode, Adam (Richard Armitage) is told that his wife faked her pregnancy, causing him to lose faith in his relationship before his wife mysteriously disappears. The British drama has a brilliant cast, so find out more about them here... 

Richard Armitage - Adam Price

Richard has had a seriously impressive film and television career, having starred in The Hobbit, Strike Back, North & South and Hannibal. He rose to fame after starring as Guy of Gisborne in the BBC drama Robin Hood. He is also an Olivier Award nominee for his role in The Crucible as John Proctor.

Speaking about his role in The Stranger, he told BT TV: "There were things that weren't in the book and things that were in the book, and rather than trying to be to block out what shouldn't be there, I just let it all be there, and just focus on the parts of the story that the TV series is going to capture. There was also some personal stuff in there as well, like I'd written some biography things that came out of my own life that sort of found their way into the script somehow. And so it was kind of tailored to me." 

Dervla Kirwan - Corrine Price

Dervla is best known for her roles in Goodnight Sweetheart and Casanova. The mum-of-two has also previously starred in Doctor Who's Christmas special The Next Doctor. She is married to Whitechapel actor Rupert Penry-Jones.
