With filming due to get underway in April, Variety reports that Thandiwe Newton has joined the cast of Wednesday season 2.

Thandiwe Newton is Wednesday‘s second high-profile cast announcement, as Steve Buscemi recently joined the cast in an unnamed role.

Newton, 51, is best known as Maeve Millay in HBO’s sci-fi drama Westworld. She has starred in high-profile movies such as Crash, The Pursuit of Happyness, Interview with a Vampire, Mission: Impossible 2, Chronicles of Riddick, and Solo: A Star Wars Story. Netflix subscribers will recognize her as the voice of Mona, the Hormone Monstress in Big Mouth and Human Resources.
