It’s all good news for Amazon’s Preacher: Season 3 began filming this week, and four new actors have just been added to the cast, including Betty Buckley (Split) as Gran’ma, Colin Cunningham (Falling Skies) as TC, Jeremy Childs (Nashville) as Jody and Liz McGeever (Homeland) as Christina.
Here’s a list of full character descriptions:
Gran’ma – A spiritist with true powers, who can cast spells and even bring back the dead (for a price). Pay the fee or pay with your soul to feed Gran’ma’s thirst for eternal youth. She is weathered, tough, and mean, but also intelligent beyond measure. She’s Jesse’s only living family and she loves him.
TC – A man born of the bayou and the loyal caretaker and soldier for Gran’ma. Weasely and wiry, he’ll gladly tell you about his perversions whether you ask him or not. While he seems like the friendliest guy you’ll ever meet, don’t make the mistake of turning your back on him.
Jody – Massive and intimidating, Jody emanates danger. He’s the enforcer for Gran’ma and the only man Jesse’s never beaten in a fight. He’s nobody’s fool, and not someone to cross
Christina – Capable and efficient, Christina has a face that lures customers in for her family business. Christina hides it well, but she hates her job and has dreams and aspirations outside of her current life – but suffers to protect her child.
The new cast members join Dominic Cooper as Jesse Custer, Joseph Gilgun as Cassidy and Ruth Negga as Tulip O’Hare. The show was developed by Sam Catlin, Seth Rogan and Evan Goldberg, and based on the graphic novel by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon.
