The ‘On the Verge’ Cast Includes an ’80s Film Star and an Academy Award Nominee

Over the years, viewers have grown attached to ensemble shows featuring close-knit groups of female friends like Girlfriends, Sex and the City, and Girlfriends Guide to Divorce. While women are often pitted against each other for the sake of drama on programs, the aforementioned shows place female friendships and loyalties to one another at the forefront.

The latest ensemble series to grab attention is Netflix’s On the Verge. The 12-episode first season centers around a group of four women (Yasmin, Ell, Justine, and Anne). They are all in their forties, and they are each going through significant changes — either romantically, with their kids, or in their jobs.

The cast of the Netflix original is star-studded. Read on to find out where you’ve seen the main actors before.

Who is in the ‘On the Verge’ cast?

The four main stars have a natural rapport with one another on the show, which makes their on-screen friend group seem all the more believable.

Julie Delpy stars as Justine on the show, and she also directed and wrote On the Verge. The French-American actress is best known for playing Céline alongside Ethan Hawke (who played her love interest, Jesse) in the Before movie trilogy.

She was also a screenwriter for the latter two movies in the trilogy. The third film in the series, Before Midnight (2013), was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay.

Her other notable roles include Europa Europa (1990), An American Werewolf in Paris (1997), 2 Days in Paris (2007), and 2 Days in New York (2012).
