Daniel Zovatto is heading to the station…
The 29-year-old Costa Rican actor has laded a series regular role on HBO Max’s Station Eleven, a 10-episode post-apocalyptic limited drama series based on the international bestseller by Emily St. John Mandel.
Zovatto will star alongside Lori Petty on the series.
Andy McQueen, David Cross, Enrico Colantoni and Julian Obradors (Mayans, M.C.) will recur on the series, which hails from Patrick Somerville and Paramount Television Studios.
Written and executive produced by Somerville, Station Eleven is a post-apocalyptic saga spanning multiple timelines. It tells the stories of survivors of a devastating flu as they attempt to rebuild and reimagine the world anew while holding on to the best of what’s been lost.
Zovatto will play The Prophet, the enigmatic leader of a mysterious cult of young people. Petty plays The Conductor, the leader of a group of traveling Shakespeare performers.
They join previously announced series regulars Mackenzie Davis, Himesh Patel, David Wilmot, Matilda Lawler, Nabhaan Rizwan and Philippine Velge.
Obradors is Tyler Leander, the precocious son of two movie stars, who learns painful life lessons by watching the adults around him respond to crisis.
Hiro Murai directs and executive produces with Somerville, Scott Steindorff, Scott Delman, Dylan Russell, Nate Matteson, Jeremy Podeswa and Jessica Rhoades.
Zovatto’s previous credits include Revenge, Fear the Walking Dead and Penny Dreadful: City of Angels.
