Where You've Seen The Cast Of Enola Homes 2 Before

Following the positive response to the 2020 film adaptation of author Nancy Springer's first "Enola Holmes" novel, Netflix has once again teamed up with director Harry Bradbeer and writer Jack Thorne to bring the titular teenage sleuth to life for another new adventure full of mystery and action. Unlike the first film, "Enola Holmes 2" is slightly deviating away from its source material, as the story won't be based on one of Springer's novels. This time, the sequel is inspired by a real-life historical event involving labor activist Sarah Chapman, who is also being portrayed in the film.

In "Enola Holmes 2," audiences find Enola (Millie Bobby Brown) establishing her very own detective agency. However, due to her age and gender, she's struggling to keep her business afloat and is having a hard time landing her first case. Just when she's about to give up, she gets drawn to a missing person case involving a young girl (Serrana Su-Ling Bliss) searching for her older sister (Hannah Dodd) who hasn't returned home for a long while now. As she starts her investigation, Enola discovers that her case is much bigger than she thought it would be, as she suspects that a conspiracy surrounding the matchstick factory might be connected to the disappearance of Sarah Chapman. Meanwhile, her famous brother Sherlock (Henry Cavill), for the first time, hits a roadblock with his latest case concerning corrupt government officials.

Returning lead stars Brown and Cavill are joined by a stellar ensemble cast consisting of rising young talents, British TV stars, and "Harry Potter" alumni. Get to know more about the cast of "Enola Holmes 2" and discover where you've seen them before.

Millie Bobby Brown as Enola Holmes

Leading the cast is Millie Bobby Brown as she reprises the titular role of Enola Holmes, the teenage sister of the famous Sherlock Holmes. In the sequel, Enola continues to aspire to be recognized as a formidable detective outside of her brother's shadow. Audiences find her taking on her first official case.

At the young age of 12, Brown gained worldwide recognition for her leading role as Eleven on Netflix's coming-of-age sci-fi horror adventure series "Stranger Things." For her performance during the first season, she earned her first Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series. Thanks to the show's global success and universal acclaim, Brown transformed from an up-and-coming newcomer to one of today's most sought-after young actresses. Before landing her breakout role in "Stranger Things," she started acting on screen in 2013, when she got cast for a two-episode appearance on ABC's short-lived spin-off "Once Upon a Time in Wonderland" as young Alice. The following year, she became a main cast member on the BBC America drama "Intruders," in which she played Madison O'Donnell, a girl possessed by the soul of a serial killer. She also had one-episode roles on popular TV shows like "NCIS," "Modern Family," and "Grey's Anatomy."

Following her "Stranger Things" fame, Brown made her feature acting debut with the 2019 blockbuster film "Godzilla: King of the Monsters," in which she portrayed the daughter of Vera Farmiga's character named Madison Russell. Afterward, she signed on for her second collaboration with Netflix in the form of the coming-of-age mystery film "Enola Holmes," which marks the first time that she was also credited as a producer. In 2021, she returned to the MonsterVerse franchise to reprise her role as Madison in "Godzilla vs. Kong." After her performance in "Enola Holmes 2," she will next be seen in two high-profile features for Netflix, including the fantasy film "Damsel" and the sci-fi pic "The Electric State" from the Russo Brothers.

Henry Cavill as Sherlock Holmes

In "Enola Holmes 2," Henry Cavill makes his return as Enola's older brother Sherlock. In the sequel, the brilliant detective takes on one of his most challenging cases yet, as he faces a problem he can't seem to solve on his own. Like Millie Bobby Brown, Cavill is also working with Netflix on another successful fantasy drama, "The Witcher." He has been playing Geralt of Rivia for two seasons now and is set to reprise the role for the final time in the upcoming third season.

Apart from playing iconic characters such as Sherlock and Geralt, Cavill's most prominent role to date is portraying Clark Kent aka Superman in the DCEU films. He first appeared as Superman in Zack Snyder's 2013 superhero film "Man of Steel." He later reprisesd the popular Kryptonian hero in three more features including "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," "Justice League," and most recently a cameo appearance in "Black Adam." After five years full of fan outcry and doubts regarding his future as Superman, Cavill finally confirmed through an Instagram video that he is indeed returning as the Man of Steel, promising fans that his "Black Adam" cameo is just "a small taste of things to come" and that their support and patience will be rewarded soon.

Before landing his breakthrough role as Superman, Cavill's early acting credits include a few notable appearances in films such as "The Count of Monte Cristo," "Hellraiser: Hellworld," "Red Riding Hood," "Stardust," and "Immortals." He also nabbed a series regular role on the historical drama "The Tudors," in which he played the womanizing Charles Brandon for 38 episodes.

Louis Partridge as Tewkesbury

Louis Partridge plays the role of Tewkesbury in "Enola Holmes 2." Unlike in the first film, audiences will see a more mature version of the young Viscount Lord Tewkesbury in the sequel, as he becomes a respectable and valued member of the House of Lords due to his progressive stance.

Partridge began his acting career in 2014, when he scored a one-episode appearance as Alf on the BBC sitcom "Boomers." Soon after, he got cast in two short films — the fantasy drama "Beneath Water" and the family comedy "About a Dog." He followed that up with another short feature appearance in the 2016 fantasy drama "Second Skin." He appeared in the feature-length films "Pan" and "Amazon Adventure," and in the latter he appeared as a young Henry Bates. Around the same time, Partridge nabbed a minor role in the live-action animated comedy "Paddington 2." However, his scenes as G-Man in the critically acclaimed film weren't able to make the final theatrical cut. In 2019, he returned to the small screen for a recurring role as Piero de' Medici on the historical drama series "Medici."

Partridge's big break came when he successfully secured the role of Tewkesbury in Netflix's film adaptation of "Enola Holmes." It served as his first-ever high-profile project as one of the main leading stars. After getting recognition for appearing in "Enola Holmes," he started landing major roles in projects like the independent British film "The Lost Girls" and the FX limited drama "Pistol," in which he respectively played Peter Pan and Sex Pistols frontman Sid Vicious.

Helena Bonham Carter as Eudoria Holmes

Portraying Sherlock and Enola's mother, Eudoria Holmes, is the versatile Helena Bonham Carter, as she returns for the sequel. In the first film, Enola discovers that her mother is actually part of a secret revolutionary movement that aims to empower women and advocate for their rights. Bonham Carter is an award-winning English actress who gained global recognition for portraying many iconic characters throughout her nearly four-decade career.

Her most prominent role is portraying the villainous Bellatrix Lestrange in the "Harry Potter" film franchise. Thanks to her delightful performance in the final four films, including "The Order of the Phoenix," "The Half-Blood Prince," and "The Deathly Hallows" parts one and two, Bellatrix became one of the franchise's fan-favorite characters. For her dramatic roles as Kate Croy in the romantic drama "The Wings of the Dove" and Queen Elizabeth in "The King's Speech," Bonham Carter earned Academy Award nominations for Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress, respectively. She's also best known for her collaborative partnership with visionary filmmaker and ex-husband Tim Burton, having worked with him in 2001's "Planet of the Apes," "Big Fish," "Corpse Bride," "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory," "Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street," "Alice in Wonderland" films, and "Dark Shadows."

The role earned her two Emmys and two Golden Globe nominations for best supporting actress.

The first film earned him critical acclaim and multiple awards in 1993 including the award for Best Actor at Cannes. His performance in the third season of "Fargo" also gave him his first Emmy and Golden Globe nominations for best supporting actor.

To "Enola Holmes" fans, Thewlis is introduced as a corrupt police officer. However, to die-hard "Harry Potter" fans, the acclaimed English actor will always be a hero in their eyes, thanks to his memorable performance as Remus Lupin in the blockbuster franchise. He first appeared in "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" as Hogwarts' newest Defense Against the Dark Arts professor, who secretly can transform himself into a werewolf.

David Westhead as Henry Lyon

David Westhead plays the supporting character of Henry Lyon in "Enola Holmes 2." In the film, he is introduced as the owner of the matchstick company whose female workers have been mysteriously getting sick. Westhead studied acting at The Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. After graduating, he went to perform in a number of stage productions with the Royal Shakespeare Company.
