Daniel Mays, Sian Brooke and Sam Taylor Buck confirmed as further Good Omens casting revealed

Good Omens, the forthcoming series for Amazon and BBC Two has cast young actor Sam Taylor Buck as Adam Young, the reluctant antichrist, in the television adaptation by the best-selling novel by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett which began shooting in London this week.

Joining Sam Taylor Buck in the Them, the group of friends who try to soften Adam's satanic impulses are Amma Ris as Pepper, Ilan Galkoff as Brian and Alfie Taylor as Wensleydale.

Also confirmed in the cast as the antichrist's accidental parents are Daniel Mays (Line Of Duty, Against The Law, Born To Kill) who plays father Arthur Young and Sian Brooke (Sherlock, Doctor Foster) as his mother Deidre Young.

Commenting on his casting, Daniel Mays says: "Beyond overjoyed to be jumping on board Good Omens. It's not everyday you get to play the father of the antichrist! Neil Gaiman's scripts are out of this world and the cast they've assembled are second to none. Can't wait to get cracking!"

Sian Brooke says: "I'm thrilled to be part of this fantastic adaptation of Good Omens and working with such a great team of cast and creatives. It's certainly going to be an adventure playing the unknowing mother of the antichrist!"

Good Omens was commissioned for Amazon Prime Video and for BBC Two by Patrick Holland, Controller, BBC Two; Shane Allen, Controller, BBC Comedy Commissioning and BBC commissioning editor Gregor Sharp. It is being produced by the comedy team at BBC Studios, the BBC's commercial production arm, Narrativia and The Blank Corporation, in association with BBC Worldwide.

Good Omens will launch globally on Prime Video in over 200 countries and territories in 2019 including in the UK, where it will also air on BBC Two at a later date. BBC Worldwide distributes rights for Good Omens internationally, after the series premiere on Prime Video. The series will be brought to the screen by the highly acclaimed director/executive producer Douglas Mackinnon, whose credits include Knightfall, Dirk Gently, Doctor Who, Outlander and the standalone Victorian episode of Sherlock: The Abominable Bride, winner of the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Television Movie last year.
