Are you sitting down? Cause I fell over when the latest casting for The Darkest Minds came out. I was so excited. I am so excited. Gwendoline Christie has joined the cast of The Darkest Minds.
The movie already includes such amazing actors as Mandy Moore and Amandla Stenberg, but guys – the Game of Thrones actress – well, I can’t contain my excitement. She joins the cast as a bounty hunter tracking runaway teenagers. Her character takes pleasure in being well – cruel, because the way that she goes after these teenagers – it ain’t cool.
Christie joins Amandla Stenberg, Harris Dickinson, Miya Cech, Skylan Brooks, Mandy Moore and Patrick Gibson.
If you aren’t familiar with The Darkest Minds, it tells the story of an pandemic that has no cure. Teens with powers are taken away from their families and taken to internment camps. It tells the story of a teen, Ruby, that has escaped and joins other teens on the run from the government.
