For “Enola Holmes 2,” of course, Millie Bobby Brown returns as the sharp-witted chick of the Holmes family. But other characters also make a comeback, while new ones join the cast.
- On November 04, 2022, “Enola Holmes 2” already launch on Netflix.
- The star cast around Millie Bobby Brown is also back, of course.
- We will introduces you to the returning characters and the cast in more detail.
In 2020, “Enola Holmes” on Netflix impressed with a brilliant cast and an inventive, wittily staged story. 2 years later, we now return to the Holmes family, its members and adventures.
Based on the books by Nancy Springer, the sequel “Enola Holmes 2” also takes us to a colorful and perhaps a bit looser than historically accurate Victorian England. But who is in the cast this time and what role will Millie Bobby Brown, Henry Cavill and Co. play?
Millie Bobby Brown is back as Enola Holmes
Made world famous by “Stranger Things,” Millie Bobby Brown is also at home in a second major Netflix franchise. In “Enola Holmes 2,” she once again takes on the role of Sherlock Holmes’ younger sister.
Through her eyes, we will once again explore 19th century England and solve thrilling criminal cases and family mysteries. As one of the up-and-coming and most promising young actresses in Hollywood, Millie Bobby Brown also gets to showcase her talents as a co-producer in the sequel.
Henry Cavill delights again as Sherlock Holmes
Millie Bobby Brown’s co-star is Henry Cavill in the role of the legendary Sherlock Holmes. In the film series, however, Cavill still embodies him as a young, talented detective who is not yet completely hardened. A nice refreshment from older literary and cinematic Holmes portrayals.
Although described and seen as rather reserved and cool, Cavill’s Holmes is a thoroughly charming and shrewd character. As such, he also cares for his young sister Enola and supports her in her self-discovery. This aspect between the two characters and siblings is likely to be expanded in the second part of the Netflix hit.
Shortly after leaving the Witcher series and returning to the DCU as Superman, the “Enola Holmes” series should be another safe bet for Cavill.
Louis Partridge returns as Lord Tewkesbury
For a really good movie, supporting characters are just as crucial as the main cast. Louis Partridge once again plays the posh Lord Tewkesbury in “Enola Holmes 2.” So Enola will once again meet her crush.
Tewkesbury will continue to pursue his career as a reformer in the British House of Lords, but of course will also try to win Enola’s heart. Will Enola shed her loner role and join forces with him?
Fan favorite Helena Bonham Carter will once again be seen as Eudoria Holmes
Immortalized by her role of Bellatrix Lestrange in the “Harry Potter” films, Helena Bonham Carter is a true acting great. In “Enola Holmes 2” she will be seen again as the mother of Sherlock, Mycroft, and Enola.
Enola inherited her fascination and commitment to civil rights, equality, and women’s rights from her mother. It will be exciting to see how they interact and learn from each other in the sequel.
Himesh Patel plays Doctor John Watson
After we had to do without him in the first part, “Enola Holmes 2” will finally feature Sherlock’s faithful assistant, Doctor John Watson. This role will be played by Himesh Patel. He will be especially important for the relationship with Sherlock, but Enola could also have some interactions with him.
As a newcomer, but important character from the books, it is very likely that he will take an important role for the plot. In further sequels, his appearance should also already be guaranteed.
Sharon Duncan-Brewster as the new antagonist
Sharon Duncan-Brewster also joins the cast of “Enola Holmes 2”. She will be, according to first information, something like a female, new, version of Moriarty. This nemesis of Sherlock Holmes has a long tradition in all film adaptations.
As Miss Mira Troy, she will cause a lot of chaos in the country out of frustration with the government and restrictive Victorian society. With the help of her cunning schemes and mysterious agents, she is a capable antagonist for the Holmes. How will Enola and Sherlock manage to stop her?
