USS Discovery Crew Has Been Cast
According to Geek Nation, Bryan Fuller managed to cast most of the major characters before his departure as Star Trek Discovery series show runner. If true, that means the actors have likely been known within the inner-circles for some time.
As reported by the Hollywood Reporter, cast also will feature an openly gay actor as one of the male leads, which Fuller confirmed. Additionally, we can expect a female admiral, a male Klingon captain, a male admiral, a male adviser and a British male doctor. So far, it sounds like a male-dominated show, but it’s likely there will be a good balance of genders in the new series, as has been indicated by Fuller and Heather Kadin on more than one occasion.
Filming to Start in Toronto
What this all means is that we can very likely expect an official casting announcement from CBS to come within the next week or two.
