The dramatic plot twist to end the second season of The Umbrella Academy sent fans into a flurry of theories, not to mention dream casting. With all seven members of Sparrow Academy now revealed, all that’s left to do is sit and wait while the third season gets underway .

Sparrow Academy #1 / Marcus Hargreeves – Justin Cornwell

Sparrow Academy #3 / Fei Hargreeves – Britne Oldford
Canadian actress Britne Oldford will portray the role of Fei and Number Three of the Sparrow Academy. The powers of Fei haven’t been revealed in the graphic novel, so we’re currently in the dark.
Britne recently starred in the TV series Blindspot, and fans of the Arrowverse franchise will recognize her as Peek-a-Boo from The Flash.
Sparrow Academy #4 / Aphonso – Jake Epstein
Jake Epstein of Degrassi: The Next Generation, Designated Survivor, and Suits will take on the role of Alphonso, the fourth member of The Sparrow Academy.
The powers of Alphonso have yet to be revealed.
Sparrow Academy #5 / Sloane – Genesis Rodriguez
Genesis Rodriguez will take on the role of Sloane, the fifth member of The Sparrow Academy. As the opposing member to fan-favorite #5 of The Umbrella Academy, it’ll be fun to see how the two characters interact with each other.
Rodriguez is most well known for her role as Honey Lemon in Disney’s Big Hero 6.
Netflix has yet to reveal Sloane’s powers.
Sparrow Academy #6 / Jayme – Cazzie David
Relative newcomer Cazzie David will be portraying the role of Jayme, Number Six of The Sparrow Academy. One of the unnamed characters of The Sparrow Academy in the comic book has been described as acting like a human Voodoo doll. With the character description of Jayme, Voodoo like powers would definitely suit the character.
Cazzie has five acting credits to her name, having previously starred in Hannah Montana as a child and most recently in the short Stealing Pulp Fiction.
Sparrow Academy #7 – Christopher / C.G. Cube
Jokingly, Netflix has listed C.G Cube as the cast member listed to play The Sparrow Academy member Number Seven, also known as Christopher. Whether or not Number Seven will receive a voice actor remains to be seen.
