Where The Hell Have They Been?
A nearly two-year wait between seasons is an awfully long time, but rest assured the cast has been plenty busy with other projects. To help kill time until Season 2 starts, check out what your favorite cluster has been up to since Season 1 ended.
Max Riemelt — Wolfgang
Max Riemelt has been in his fair share of German cinema, but has recently been working on an Australian production. He'll be starring alongside #TeresaPalmer in Berlin Syndrome, a thriller released on May 12, which tells the story of an Australian traveler in Berlin who finds herself the victim of a friendly local turned obsessed lover.
Jamie Clayton — Nomi
You can catch Jamie Clayton later this year in The Snowman, a crime drama also starring #MichaelFassbender. But if you're more of a gamer, then you'll be pleased to hear that Clayton has been hard at work on the big-screen adapatation of Mass Effect: Andromeda, in which she'll be voicing Jien Garson, leader of the Andromeda Initiative.
Aml Ameen — Capheus
Aml Ameen's character has been replaced on Season 2 of #Sense8 due to alleged creative differences between the actor and the #Wachowskis. However, the original cast member has still been cranking out movies. 2016 saw him star in drama Soy Nero, and he's also got two projects coming out this year. Parallel is a drama about a group of friends who stumble upon a multiverse, and Dara Ju sees Ameen playing a Nigerian-American financier struggling with drug addiction and career woes.
Miguel Ángel Silvestre — Lito
The Spanish actor has recently been focusing on his role on the TV series Velvet, in which he plays the wealthy owner of an elite fashion store in 1950s Spain. But if you're looking for something with slightly less subtitles, then you're in luck! Silvestre is also going to appear in Season 3 of Narcos.
Brian J. Smith — Will
In the time his character on Sense8 turned from good cop to bad heroin addict, Brian J. Smith was also dipping his toes in the world of film. He played a washed-up hockey player in The Passing Season, as well as a savvy Canadian truck driver in 22 Chaser.
Tina Desai — Kala
Since wrapping Sense8 Season 1, the Indian actress has returned to her Bollywood roots with thrillers Dussehra and Sharafat Gayi Tel Lene, the latter of which had a slightly more comedic tone. Oh, and she also voiced a character in a Thomas the Tank Engine animated film Thomas & Friends: The Great Race.
Tuppence Middleton — Riley
If you love costume dramas, then you must check out #Dickensian, which showcases Tuppence Middleton as Miss Havisham in a mishmash of Charles Dickens tales. Or perhaps give the miniseries War & Peace a chance, if you're interested in seeing Middleton in another interpretation of historic fiction. You'll also be seeing her in the upcoming Thomas Edison film The Current War. She's really cranking out those period dramas!
Bae Doo-Na — Sun
Veritable powerhouse Bae Doo-Na swapped her prison cell for a collapsed tunnel in Korean survival flick Tunnel. Her performance was so compelling, she even won the Popular Star Award at the 37th Blue Dragon Film Awards.
Freema Agyeman — Amanita
If you love dark comedy, vampires and British accents, then you're in for quite the treat. Freema Agyeman will be starring in Eat Local, a film that shows us exactly what would happen if a young Essex lad were to find himself entangled in a sexy-but-deadly vampire get-together.
