Who will be the Casts and Characters of Season 2?
• Sarah Gordon as Grace Marks
• Edward Holcroft as Charles Hesketh.
• Zachary Levi as Jeremiah Pontelli
• Margaret Atwood as Old Women At Church
If the series will get Renewed for a second season then Gordan and Holcroft are most likely to return.
Small Synopsis of the series
The series is set in Canada in 1983, follows the tale of an Irish migrant who becomes a housekeeper called Grace Marks and is found guilty of murdering her employer and his housekeeper. This six-part series is based on the struggles between Grace and her psychologist, Dr. Simon Jordan who has to conclude whether or not she is reasonable and deserving of early release. The psychologist Jordan efforts to find out if Grace really did commit the crime and if so, why.
Throughout these sessions, Grace demonstrates the difficult times she has been through as a woman and a poor migrant. In the series themes of class, corruption, identity, gender, and mental health are existing. Although it’s uncertain, if the show is renewed, it would continue with this story and perhaps offer a resolution.
Alias Grace based on a real story: Is it True?
The role of Grace Marks is based on the real Grace Marks, an Irish migrant who arrived in Canada. Grace Marks was arrested and was imprisoned for life for murdering her employer, Thomas Kinnear, and his housekeeper, Nancy Montgomery. The novel and the series both feature a fictional psychologist, Dr. Simon Jordan. Scenes of jail in Alias Grace were shot on the region at Kingston Penitentiary where the real Grace Marks was detained for 30 years.
The series had won the Canadian Giller Prize and was shortlisted for the Booker Prize.
