ITV Studios and Pukeko Pictures have revealed the voice cast for “Thunderbirds Are Go!,” a re-invention of Gerry and Sylvia Anderson's much-loved series that will use a mix of CGI animation and live-action miniature sets.
Debuting on ITV in 2015, 50 years after its television debut, the new series will feature Rosamund Pike (The World’s End, Gone Girl) as Lady Penelope and David Graham (“Thunderbirds” 1965) reprising his role as chauffeur and International Rescue agent Parker.
Unstoppable inventor Brains will be voiced by Kayvan Novak (Fonejacker, Facejacker), while Tracy brothers Gordon and John are both played by Thomas Brodie-Sangster (Love Actually, “Game of Thrones”). Rasmus Hardiker (Saxondale, Lead Balloon) has been cast as both the youngest and oldest Tracy brothers Alan and Scott, and the fifth Tracy brother, Virgil, will be played by David Menkin.
“Each member of the cast has brought a brilliantly fresh and unique approach to these wonderful characters,” says Giles Ridge, executive producer, “Thunderbirds Are Go!.” “I can’t think of anyone better than Rosamund to bring back to life the fabulous Lady Penelope, and we are honored that David Graham has joined the cast to revisit his role as Parker.”
