Do you like stories about serial killers? Do you like the stories that tackle the paradox of time travel? Are you interested in historical fiction? If yes, yes and yes, then ‘Time After Time’ is one of the shows that you might like. Developed by Kevin Williamson, it is based on the novel of the same name written by Karl Alexander. It puts two very famous people from the 19th century at its centre and sends them to the 21st to kickstart the plot. H. G. Wells and Jack the Ripper are pitted against each other, and a time travel machine is thrown in the mix. Need I say more? The show is executive produced by Marcos Sieg and Williamson, who has previously worked on movies and TV shows like ‘Dawson’s Creek, ‘The Vampire Diaries’, ‘The Following’, ‘The Stalker’, ‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’ and the TV series ‘Scream’.
Time After Time Cast: Who’s in it?
The cast of ‘Time After Time’ is led by Freddie Stroma. His character is H. G Wells, a fictional take on the 19th-century author. He creates a time machine that is used by Jack the Ripper to travel to 2017. ‘Harry Potter’ fans will recognise Stroma as Cormac McLaggen. He also played the role of Dickon Tarly in one season of ‘Game of Thrones’ but was replaced by another actor in the next season. He has also appeared in films like ‘Pitch Perfect’, ‘Extra-terrestrial’, ‘The Inbetweeners 2’ and ‘13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi’.
The role of John Stevenson, aka, Jack the Ripper, is played by Josh Bowman. John is a surgeon who terrorises London with his hobby of brutally killing people. For the fans of ‘Revenge’, Bowman is a familiar face. He has also appeared in ‘Holby City’.
Genesis Rodriguez plays the role of Jane Walker, the curator of a museum whose knowledge of history allows her to be an asset to Wells’ trysts. Rodriguez has appeared in various films and TV shows which includes names like ‘Entourage’, ‘Man on a Ledge’, ‘What to Expect When You’re Expecting’, ‘The Last Stand’ and ‘Identity Thief’. She has also lent her voice to a character in ‘Big Hero 6’.
Nicole Ari Parker plays the role of Vanessa Anders. Vanessa is Wells’ great-great-granddaughter and is one of the wealthiest women in town. She serves as another asset to Wells because she already knows about his mission. Evidently, chasing after Jack the Ripper won’t end just at 2017. Another trip in time is in store for him. Parker is known for her roles in ‘The Incredibly True Adventures of Two Girls in Love’, ‘Boogie Nights’, ‘Remember the Titans’, ‘Empire’ and ‘The Romanoffs’.
