Lupin Cast: Who Plays in Season 2 of Netflix?

0

Arsène Lupin is the ideal man who steals. Lupin is to burglary what Sherlock Holmes is to solving crimes. He was made by the French writer Maurice Leblanc in 1905. The George Kay and Francois Uzan series Lupin on Netflix doesn’t follow Arsène’s story.

Instead, it’s about a modern gentleman thief who is inspired by Lupin. Lupin has become a huge hit on Netflix since it came out. It has a thrilling mystery, interesting characters, and a great cast.

The first five episodes of Part 1 of the series came out on January 8, 2021. Since then, the show has been the most watched on TV.

It is also the first French show to make Netflix’s list of the top 10 shows. The second part of the series came out on June 11, 2021.

In Lupin’s cast, there are both well-known actors and up-and-coming ones, so there is a good mix of both. So, we made a guide to all the main characters, their roles in the series, and the actors who play them. Lupin is already mysterious enough that you don’t need to ask, “Where have I seen that face before?”

Omar Sy as Assane Diop

Assane Diop is like a modern Arsène Lupin. He was influenced by the books of Maurice Leblanc and driven by the death of his father. Assane is played by Omar Sy, a well-known French actor, and comedian with a long and successful career. Sy is a master thief and con man who always comes out on top.

The role of Bakary “Driss” Bassari in The Intouchables (2011), for which he won the César Award for Best Actor, is one of Sy’s most famous ones.

A poll done by the French weekly Le Journal du Dimanche in 2012 found that because of the movie, he was France’s favorite person.

He has also been in Jurassic World (2015), Transformers: The Last Knight (2017), and X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014). (In the show’s flashbacks, Mamadou Haidara plays a younger version of Assane.)

Sy was reportedly involved in the early stages of making the show. He told Deadline, “The producers came to me and asked, ‘What would be the best role for you?'”

That’s amazing because not many actors get asked what their dream role would be. That was the beginning of the adventure.”

Assane steals a diamond necklace from the Louvre to start the show. Marie Antoinette’s necklace now belongs to the Pellegrini family, and Assane’s father was once accused of stealing it.

Assane wants to get even with the Pellegrini family, so he plans to expose them and show that his father is innocent. He also has a son named Raoul. Raoul lives with his mother, Claire, who used to be Assane’s girlfriend.

Ludivine Sagnier as Claire

Claire was Assane’s childhood sweetheart and is now the mother of his child. She is always upset by the way her ex-boyfriend manipulates her and lives a very unstable life.

She is kind and loving, and she has full custody of their son Raoul. Claire and Assane met for the first time when they were both living in an orphanage.

This is shown in flashbacks where Ludmilla Makowski plays the young Claire. Even though she and Assane are different, they become friends after they go their separate ways.

Ludivine Sagnier is a French actress and model who has been nominated twice for the César Award. She plays Claire as an adult.

She made her first movie appearance in Les Maris, Les Femmes, and Les Amants when she was only nine years old (1989). 8 Women (2002), Swimming Pool (2003), and Peter Pan (2003), in which she played Tinkerbell, are some of her best-known movies.

Sagnier was also in the 2016 drama series The Young Pope and its follow-up, The New Pope (2020).

Etan Simon as Raoul

Etan Simon’s first big show is Lupin, in which he plays the son of the main character. His character Raoul is a quiet teenager who likes video games, electronic music, and the stories of Arsène Lupin.

He was born on December 11, the same day as the man who made Lupin, Maurice Leblanc. Raoul is straightforward and honest, and he has a sarcastic sense of humor.

He gets along well with his parents, Assane and Claire. He understands that his father isn’t always stable, and he has a good relationship with his mother.

Raoul also has his father’s ability to notice things and his love of Arsène Lupin books. Part 1 of the series ended with Pellegrini’s goon taking Raoul away.

French actor, director, and playwright Nicole Garcia plays the character. Alias Betty (2001) and My American Uncle are important works (1980).

Babakar Diop (Fargass Assandé)
