Mark Ruffalo and Hugh Laurie have joined the cast of the Netflix limited series ‘All The Light We Cannot See.’
Adapted from the bestselling novel, the four-part series follows a blind teenager Marie-Laure’s as her path collides with Werner, a German soldier, as they both try to survive the devastation of World War II in occupied France.
Ruffalo will take on the role of Marie-Laure’s father, Daniel LeBlanc, the principal locksmith at the Museum of Natural History in Paris. Caring and clever, he’s determined to give his blind daughter as much independence as he can while also protecting her — and the secret gem they carry — from Nazi occupation.
Newcomer Aria Mia Loberti will play the role of Marie-Laurie.
Laurie will play the role of Etienne LeBlanc, an eccentric and reclusive World War I hero suffering from PTSD. Etienne LeBlanc is a nervous shut-in who records clandestine radio broadcasts as part of the French Resistance.
The series is penned by ‘Peaky Blinders’ scribe Steven Knight and directed by ‘Free Guy’ helmer Shawn Levy.
Levy and Knight executive produce the limited series alongside Dan Levine and Josh Barry of Levy’s 21 Laps Entertainment.
