Beirut-born Lebanese-British actress Razane Jammal recently announced that she has joined the cast of the Netflix series The Sandman.
The upcoming series is based on the 1989–1996 comic book written by Neil Gaiman and published by DC Comics. It is being produced by DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Television.
Jammal is known for her roles in the French-German biographical film Carlos (the Jackal) directed by Olivier Assayas, Kanye West’s short film Cruel Summer, and the French drama Don’t Tell Me The Boy Was Mad by Robert Guédiguian.
She is no stranger to Netflix, having played in the Netflix Original series Paranormal, an Egyptian supernatural-horror drama adaptation of a book series by the late Egyptian author and physician Ahmed Khaled Tawfik.
In The Sandman, Jammal will get to work alongside a spectacular cast, including Tom Sturridge and Gwendoline Christie. She will star as Lyta Hall (Fury), the widow of the DC Comics superhero Hector Hall.
Netflix’s The Sandman is being written and developed by famed screenwriter Allan Heinberg, the writer behind Wonder Woman. He has also worked on plenty of successful TV productions, including Grey’s Anatomy, Gilmore Girls, The O.C., and more.
