Torchwood: The New Cast?

Casting rumours about Torchwood’s casting rumours the EW have strongly hinted that 23 year-old Greek actress Amber Stevens is the front runner for the role of Esther Katusi.

A CIA Watch Anaylst, Esther is one of a handful of new members for Team Jack, and has:

“An unshakable faith in human nature and a monster crush on Rex.”

Rex for all of those not fluent in Torchwood is devil may care, wisecracking, superior smashing: ‘i took risks but i got the job done!’ CIA Agent Rex Matheson who (adopts action hero sandpaper larynx voice):

“Cares less about making a good impression than he does making a lasting one.”

In the running to fill Rex’s action hero credentials are Dollhouse’s very own wisecracker Enver Gjokaj (that RTD, anyone would think he liked this Joss Wheadon bloke) and One Tree Hill’s very own ‘not returning for season seven’ Chad Michael Murray.

Roles yet to be filled are that of ‘dangerous and clever’ convicted murderer/paedophile Oswald Jones who while seemingly showing remorse for his crimes becomes embroiled in the middle of a catastrophic happening and a Dr. Vera Juarez who so far has been described as just Dr. Vera Juarez- obviously we’ll keep you posted with all the latest ‘agents pushing their stars profile’ Torchwood casting rumours.

Torchwood: The New World will debut on both Starz (in the US)and the BBC (in the UK) simultanously in Summer 2011 and will again feature regulars John Barrowman and Eve Myles as (Group) Captain Jack Harkness and Gwen Cooper.
