The producers of Stargirl found their Richard Swift in British actor Jonathan Cake. He’s perfect for the role, not only because he’s got an air of mystery to himself, but he’s a pretty talented character actor.
Richard has been acting for many years, with one of his first credits being a guest appearance on a 1993 TV show called Press Gang. He had a small role in the 1995 movie First Knight, starring Sean Connery, and had a recurring role on HBO’s sitcom Doll & Em for two years.
He also had roles on Desperate Housewives, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Camping, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Grey’s Anatomy, SEAL Team, and The Affair.
The second season of Stargirl airs on the CW Tuesdays at 8 p.m. EST.
