DUBAI: Lebanese-British actress Razane Jammal is set to join the DC Universe. The “Paranormal” star was selected to join the cast of the new Netflix series “Sandman,” alongside fellow cast members Tom Sturridge, Gwendoline Christie, Vivienne Acheampong, Boyd Holbrook and Charles Dance.
“What a dream come true! Thrilled to have joined the DC family,” wrote Jammal to her 148,000 Instagram followers, announcing the exciting news.
The series is based on “The Sandman” comic book series created for DC by Neil Gaiman, who is co-writing the series alongside David S. Goyer and Allan Heinberg. It follows the people and places affected by Morpheus (Sturridge), the Dream King, as he mends the cosmic — and human — mistakes he’s made during his vast existence.
Jammal will take on the role of Lyta Hall, the best friend and travel companion of Rose Walker, who is one of the main protagonists of the comic book series.
The star gained prominence for her role as Lana Jarrar in Olivier Assayas’ award-winning mini-series “Carlos.” She would go on to feature in rapper Kanye West’s short film “Cruel Summer” in 2012.
The 33-year-old is also the star of Netflix series “Paranormal” based on the late Ahmed Khaled Tawfik’s best-selling book of the same name.
