Recently having been playing the role of Charles Xavier in the third season of FX’s ‘Legion’, Harry Lloyd has landed a starring role on the TV adaptation of Aldous Huxley‘s ‘Brave New World’, opposite Alden Ehrenreich.
Lloyd will portray one of the show’s main characters, Bernard Marx.
The series is written by David Wiener, Grant Morrison, and Brian Taylor, and is expected to arrive on the new streaming service NBCU, although it was originally ordered for the USA cable network.
In the utopian society of Huxley’s book, thanks in part to the drug Soma, monogamy, privacy, money, family, and history have been outlawed. But John’s arrival threatens to dismantle this rigid society. Lloyd’s character, Bernard is described as an “Alpha Plus who works as a counselor for The Bureau of Stability, administering Soma to the citizens of New London.”
Wiener serves as showrunner on ‘Brave New World’ and will be an executive producer along with Morrison.
