'Devils' Season 1: Meet Patrick Dempsey, Alessandro Borghi, Kasia Smutniak and rest of the cast of thriller
In The CW's upcoming financial thriller, nothing is as it seems and first impressions are going to be deceptive. Based on the 2014 novel of the same name by Guido Maria Brera, the series follows the head of trading at a huge American New York-London Bank (NYL) as he tries to clear his name in a murder investigation. In this race against time and hope, what our protagonist doesn't know is that he has more traitors than friends.
'Devils' premieres on Wednesday, October 7, at 8 pm ET. But before you catch the show, meet the cast.
Patrick Dempsey as Dominic Morgan
Emmy and Golden Globe-nominee Dempsey is set to play the role of Dominic Morgan. The actor is best known for his role as neurosurgeon Derek "McDreamy" Shepherd in 'Grey's Anatomy'. But going by the first looks of 'Devils', Dempsey plays a role like never-before - he is no longer the McDreamy we once knew. The actor is also very well known for his roles in 'Valentine's Day', 'Flypaper', 'Freedom Writers', 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon' and 'Bridget Jones's Baby'.
While this fact is very much public, not a lot of people know that Dempsey maintains a sports car and vintage car collection. He also enjoys auto racing in his spare time. The actor has competed in pro-am events such as the 24 Hours of Le Mans, Rolex 24 at Daytona sports car race and Ensenada SCORE Baja 1000 off-road race.
Alessandro Borghi as Massimo Ruggero
Borghi is known for his role as Aureliano "Number 8" Adami in 'Don't Be Bad', 'Suburra' and 'Suburra: Blood on Rome'. For his portrayal of building surveyor Stefano Cucchi, a victim of police brutality, in the film 'On My Skin', he won the David di Donatello for Best Actor in 2019.
In an interview last year, the Italian actor said he watched a lot of movies like 'Margin Call' and 'Wolf of Wall Street' to get a gist about the terminology of finance. At the same time, he noted that 'Devils' was "completely different". "We show different sides (…) and we have a lot to tell about the relationships between the characters. They have a lot of money, but also a lot of (personal) problems," Borghi explained in the interview. He also added that he spent time in London to master his British accent and listened to loads of 'TED Talks'.
Kasia Smutniak as Nina Morgan
Polish actress and model Kasia is known for her work in 'From Paris With Love', 'Welcome Mr President', 'Dolce Fine Giornata', 'Loro' and 'Perfect Strangers'. The actress is fluent in Polish, Russian, English and Italian.
The series also stars Laia Costa (who is known for her roles in 'Victoria' and 'Newness') as Sofia Flores, Lars Mikkelsen ('The Killing' and 'Sherlock') as Daniel Duval, Malachi Kirby (known for 'Roots') as Oliver Harris, Paul Chowdhry (comic best known for 'Live at the Apollo', 'Swinging with the Finkels') as Kalim Chowdrey, Pia Mechler ('Everything Is Wonderful') as Eleanor Bourg, Harry Michell ('Chubby Funny') as Paul McGuinnan and Sallie Harmsen ('Blade Runner 2049') as Carrie Price.
