'Modern Love' Season 2 Full Cast List: Meet Kit Harington and other stars on Amazon Prime show
'Modern Love' Season 2 is coming to Amazon Prime with yet another bunch of wonderful stories
Love comes in all forms, says the trailer of the highly anticipated second season of Amazon Prime’s extremely successful series ‘Modern Love’. The series which is inspired by 'The New York Times' column of the same name will take a look at new love stories this season from strangers forming a connection on a train to two teenagers questioning their sexuality and their love and a man realizing that his ex-wife is actually the woman of his dreams.
The first season starred Hollywood heavyweights such as Anne Hathaway, Tina Fey and Dev Patel among others. Here’s a look at who is starring in the second season.
Kit Harington plays a young man who finds romance with a stranger on a train in the second season of ‘Modern Love’. Harington is of course known to many ‘Game Of Thrones’ fans, synonymous with his role as Jon Snow. But with this role in ‘Modern Love’ and his upcoming performance as Dane Whitman in the Marvel Cinematic Universe film 'Eternals' which releases on November 5, 2021, Harington may be starting to break out of the Jon Snow stereotype. Harington is also known for his role in series such as 'Gunpowder' and his roles in films such as 'Pompeii' and 'Testament of Youth'.
Tobias Menzies in the second season of 'Modern Love' finds the woman of his dreams who just happens to be his ex-wife. Menzies of course has become quite a familiar face to audiences across the globe with his roles such as 'Black Jack' Randall in 'Outlander' which got him a Golden Globe Award nomination. Harington isn't the only 'Game of Thrones' star in the cast of 'Modern Love' as Menzies played Edmure Tully in the series. Menzies has also recently portrayed Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, in the third and fourth seasons of Netflix's series 'The Crown' — a performance which earned him further nominations for a Golden Globe Award and a Primetime Emmy Award.
Minnie Driver's breakout role was in the film 'Circle of Friends' but it was her role in 'Good Will Hunting' and of course her off-screen romance with Matt Damon that catapulted her into a different league of stardom. Driver's performance in 'Good Will Hunting' garnered her the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress and a Screen Actors Guild Award. Driver went on to establish herself as a successful actor particularly on the small screen with roles in series such as 'The Riches' for which she was nominated for both an Emmy and a Golden Globe. She also starred in several other series such as 'About A Boy', 'Speechless' and had a recurring role on 'Will & Grace'. Driver has also put her vocal talents to good use both as a singer and has also lent her voice to several animated films such as 'SuperMansion', 'Tarzan' and 'Princess Mononoke'.
Anna Paquin had a truly historic start with her film career, with her performance in the film 'The Piano' for which she won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress at the age of 11. Besides winning multiple awards as a child actor for films such as 'Fly Away Home' and 'A Walk on the Moon', Paquin has managed the tricky transition from child actor to being a successful star in her adulthood. Besides starring in films such as 'Almost Famous', 'Jane Eyre' and 'Amistad', Paquin has also enjoyed huge commercial success with her role as mutant superheroine Rogue in the 'X-Men' franchise. She has also had an extremely successful career on the small screen with her role as Sookie Stackhouse in the vampire drama series 'True Blood' for which she won the Golden Globe Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series, Drama in 2009 and was nominated for an additional Golden Globe Award in 2010.
Sophie Okonedo plays the ex-wife of Tobias Menzie's character who he ends up falling in love with all over again. Okonedo's breakthrough role was in 'Hotel Rwanda' where she played the wife of the Rwandan hotel manager and humanitarian Paul Rusesabagina. Her role as Tatiana Rusesabagina garnered her a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress at the 77th Academy Awards in 2005.
