Nathan Stewart-Jarrett

Nathan Stewart-Jarrett is set to star as Joe in the upcoming TV series Culprits. The actor is best known for starring in Misfits as Curtis Donovan. He also appeared as Ian in the Channel 4 show Utopia. Stewart-Jarrett’s more recent work includes recurring roles in Four Weddings and a Funeral as well as The Trial of Christine Keeler. He also guested in such shows as Dracula, Soulmates, and Doctor Who. He starred in the short-lived HBO Max dramedy series Generation, portraying the character of Sam. On the big screen, the actor performed in The Kid Who Would Be King, The Argument, and Candyman. Stewart-Jarrett has experience in both TV and stage. According to an interview he did with Interview Magazine, he explained what he felt was the difference between the two: “There’s a difference, for sure, but ultimately it boils down to telling the truth. You play the truth of the moment. And you play to the size of the room. I approach the characters in the same way. In theater, though, you have control of the journey. You are in control of so much. It is definitely the actor’s medium, in a way that television could never be. On TV, you have editors who can save a performance, or ruin it. I do think working on screen has beat the rigid perfectionism out of me that I got from drama school. It’s loosened me up.”

Gemma Arterton

Gemma Arterton will be portraying Dianne in the upcoming TV series Culprits. Gemma made her film debut as Head Girl Kelly in the 2007 film St Trinian’s. While still in theater school, Gemma Arterton landed her first professional role in the BBC television drama Capturing Mary, written and directed by Stephen Poliakoff. Before graduating later that year, Arterton made her stage debut as Rosaline in Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre’s production of Love’s Labour’s Lost.

Eddie Izzard

Veteran actor Eddie Izzard will be joining the cast of Culprits.

On TV, she performed in The Lost Symbol, Stay Close, The Kids in the Hall, and Green Eggs and Ham, where she played Hervnick Z. Snerz for a total of 13 episodes. Izzard has also written a screenplay, and in an interview with NPR, he explained the challenges of doing stand up while writing: “It is quite different. And my standup, I don’t even write. I sort of develop it from ideas and kind of riff on it, kind of in a jazz way, until I’ve got a piece that works. And so story structure, characters, how they interact, I knew I had to get on top of that and develop an ability in that. And I also needed to work with other writers, and working with my other collaborators we pushed it to this place. And having the head of the school being a Nazi-sympathetic Englishwoman, the idea was why don’t you pitch to Judi Dench? And Judi kind of wants to do roles that she’s not expected to do. So she was up for doing it. And that’s how we got to that position.”

Kirby Howell-Baptiste

Actor Kirby Howell-Baptiste will be playing a role in the upcoming TV series Culprits. She is best known for her roles in Downward Dog, Killing Eve, and Why Women Kill.
