British actress Naomi Ackie, who had her acting debut in Lady MacBeth, and Irish star Denise Gough (from Colette) have been casted in the series.
The show will star Sheila Atim who was a regular on Harlots.
Georgie Henley from Disney's The Chronicles of Narnia and british stage actor Alex Sharp are more unfamiliar faces whose stardom will likely rise thanks to their roles in the series.
Last but not least, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald star Toby Regbo will have a role in the drama which is set thousands of years before HBO's mega franchise.
The first episode will be shot later this year, with the series is not expected to begin airing before 2020.
