Helena Bonham Carter and Keegan-Michael Key have joined as well.

Last year, Netflix and The Jim Henson Company announced that a series based on Jim Henson’s 1982 film The Dark Crystal was in the works, and now Netflix has revealed the series’ impressive voice cast. Called The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, the show takes place many years before the movie’s events, and it centers on three Gelfling who discover a secret about the evil Skeksis’ power. They then set out on a battle to save Thra.

The three Gelfling will be voiced by Taron Egerton (Kingsman), Anya Taylor-Joy (The Witch) and Nathalie Emmanuel (Game of Thrones). Other Gelfling characters will be voiced by Natalie Dormer (Game of Thrones), Theo James (Divergent) and Helena Bonham Carter. Among the cast voicing the Skeksis and Mystics are Andy Samberg (SNL, Brooklyn Nine-Nine), Jason Isaacs, Mark Hamill, Keegan-Michael Key and Simon Pegg, among others.

“To match the stunning visual world of The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, we knew we had to entice some incredible voice talent to add dimension to the exquisite artistry of the puppeteers who bring the characters to life,” Netflix VP of original series Cindy Holland said in a statement. “I am proud to say that this may be one of the finest casts assembled from the world’s favorite TV shows and movies, and I am now even more excited for fans to come back to Thra with us, and for new viewers to discover this world for the very first time.”

The series will use classic puppetry and “cutting edge visual effects” to reimagine Henson’s world and it’s set to debut next year. You can see the rest of the announced cast below.


  • Caitriona Balfe (Outlander)
  • Harris Dickinson (forthcoming Maleficent 2)
  • Eddie Izzard (Ocean’s Thirteen)
  • Toby Jones (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy)
  • Shazad Latif (Star Trek: Discovery)
  • Gugu Mbatha-Raw (The Cloverfield Paradox)
  • Mark Strong (Kingsman)
  • Alicia Vikander (Tomb Raider)

Skeksis and Mystics:

  • Harvey Fierstein (Torch Song)
  • Ralph Ineson (Game of Thrones)
  • Ólafur Darri Ólafsson (True Detective)

Aughra will be voiced by Donna Kimball (The Happytime Murders).

“I’ve turned down roles involving sex because I’m terrified of perpetuating that clickbait image.”

Natalie Dormer is not on Twitter, Instagram or any kind of social media – and that’s becoming a bit of a problem.

“I have been misquoted and taken out of context quite regularly on the subject of sex on screen. I don’t have any immediate redress to counter it,” the actress tells me, sitting at the other end of the sofa, but leaning towards me and watching how her words land. “How absurd to go, ‘Should I just tweet to say that journalist took my words completely out of context?’ It creates another story.”

It’s clear the events of 2015 have left Dormer very wary of how her words will be interpreted – or misinterpreted – online. The episode concerned Dormer’s comments about her Game of Thrones character, Queen Margaery Tyrell, seducing a 12-year-old boy. The character, King Tommen, was played by actor Dean-Charles Chapman, who was actually 16 at the time of filming; but the scene was the subject of immense interest, and came up in every interview she gave at the time.

Dormer’s comments on the scene were later twisted online to imply that she condoned having sex with underage children. She released a statement to website (the original can no longer be found through googling), explaining that she considered Tommen to be “a naive 17-year-old” and “wouldn’t have played the scene if I believed different”. She also made it clear that she does not “condone, in any shape or form, sex with a minor. That is child abuse. A serious criminal act.”

Natalie Dormer has said that before that she knows how Game of Thrones ends, but appreciates she’ll be “sued” if she shares her intel. What she will say is what she hopes will happen were she given script-writing duties.

“I would like humanity to be saved please,” she laughs. “It’s really just that in a nutshell – that humanity was saved against the White Walkers. I’m hoping for a continuation of humanity in Westeros if possible.”

The British actress, who played queen Margaery Tyrell in the popular show, assumes another regal role in her latest project, featuring as a queen in a new satirical Nespresso advert with George Clooney. She admits that, along with her love of coffee, working with Clooney was a big draw. The two traded notes on Berkshire, where she grew up and where the actor now lives with wife Amal and his twins.

“He is as delightful, witty and intelligent as he appears to be in his interviews,” she says. “It’s lovely to meet someone who matches the positive public profile that they have. He’s a generous human being and has time for everyone. His work catalogue speaks for itself and then there’s his humanitarian work. He’s very grounded, which is refreshing to find of someone of his fame or profile. It was a delight to spend a few days with him.”

Clooney and coffee aside, Dormer is currently working on a television series about Vivien Leigh, the wildly talented Gone With The Wind actress who spent her life battling with bipolar disorder. Dormer, who has spent the past few years producing and developing the show, was recently announced as the lead. The project is still in script development stages as it searches for a distributor.
