The new episodes of the dystopian series are currently filmed in Toronto.
The fifth season of The Handmaid’s Tale has received some casting news. Actress Dave Christine Ko is the first to join the cast of the new episodes of the dystopian series of Hulu (available in Italy on TIMvision and Prime Video). While filming takes place in Toronto, she has been cast in a major and recurring role, with the new season premiering later this year.
The role of Christine Ko
Christine Ko (who we saw in Prime Video’s Upload and will see soon in the second season of Only Murders in the Building) will play Lily, a refugee from Gilead who is now a leader in the Canadian resistance movement, in The Handmaid’s Tale. ILily has a history of finding herself in dangerous situations, as evidenced by her scars. She is Marta’s ex-girlfriend and is a tenacious and resourceful woman. Lily can turn into a proud ally once she gains her trust.
How will the story of The Handmaid’s Tale continue after the shocking finale of the fourth season?
June (Elisabeth Moss) and her escaped colleagues captured and killed Gilead leader Fred Waterford (Joseph Fiennes) in the shocking finale of Season 4. “This powerful rotation has the potential to push things in many ways,” showrunner Bruce Miller told The Hollywood Reporter. “By June, it could mean infamy or jail.” “On the one hand, you are a refugee who did this, but who will know? Who was present and who will inform him of their presence? The nice thing about his gesture is that it can serve as inspiration or tarnish the image of the Handmaids. You can see two completely different things depending on how you look at them. “
