Australian actress Essie Davis has been cast in the role of the Leading Actress for the colorful theatre troupe appearing in season 6, that we’ve spotted filming around Girona this week. It was the location filming that led to fans identifying the actress.
Davis is best known to audiences as the star of Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries. She’s also appeared in films such as The Babadook, The Matrix Reloaded, and The Matrix Revolutions.
The specific name of Davis’s character is unknown at the moment. The Leading Actress appeared in the first casting breakdowns of season 6, described as “an elegant actress with a traveling theatre company.” The character is a “fun, charismatic, rum-drinking actress in the troupe.”
Thanks to WotW reader Mark for bringing the casting to our attention!
