Who Is the Cast Of Luther: The Fallen Sun?

Idris Elba, Cynthia Erivo, and Andy Serkis are among the main actors in Luther: The Fallen Sun, which also stars Jess Liaudin, Lauryn Ajufo, Dermot Crowley, Natasha Patel, Henry Hereford, and Ruth Wilson. Elba plays DCI John Luther, a bright top inspector who is falsely accused of killing someone and then flees. He plays the same role in the movie that he did in the television show.

Luther is so devoted to his profession that he becomes possessive and obsessed to the point of becoming aggressive. He frequently becomes consumed by the evil of the crimes and the criminals—a price he pays for becoming overly invested in his work.

The tweet connected for more information about The Fallen Sun-

David Robey, a computer billionaire and serial murderer who uses his own surveillance technology to snoop on individuals and kill them, is the antagonist of the plot and Luther’s enemy, and Serkis portrays him. Serkis discussed his character’s statement that “I don’t think I’ve come across anything quite as dark for a long time” in an interview.

Although David and Luther had previously met, so far Luther has been able to avoid punishment; nevertheless, this time around things may be different. While Crowley plays DSU Martin Shenk, Luther’s former supervisor, Erivo plays one of Luther’s associates. Ajufo plays Anya, Patel portrays Lydia Deng, Hereford plays Brian Lee, and Wilson plays Alice Morgan, a psychotic criminal, in other roles.

The persona of Alice is also borrowed from the series, where Luther fails to charge her with a crime and eventually shares a complicated relationship with her.
