Fallout Episode 1 Cast

Episode 1 of Fallout on Amazon Prime Video introduced viewers to a cast of characters inhabiting this morose nuclear drama. 

Adapting the world of Betheda's beloved Fallout video game franchise, the streaming series opens with an introduction to a dark and oddly hilarious irradiated universe. 

Episode 1 (titled "The End") covered a lot of ground including the events that preceded the nuclear apocalypse, a raid on one of the series' iconic vaults, and the opening up of the Los Angeles Wasteland as a vault dweller is thrust into this lawless land. 

Every Main Character and Actor in Fallout Episode 1

Ella Purnell - Lucy

Leading Fallout is Ella Purnell as the former vault dweller Lucy. Standing in for the player character from the games, Lucy is forced from the safe confines of Vault 33 in Episode 1 following a Raider attack on her home and the kidnapping of her father.

Being her first time venturing out into the Wasteland, Lucy is going to have to adapt, as - after spending her entire life underground - she is now in no man's land with her only goal being to find her dad. 

Purnell is best known for her work in Kick-Ass 2, Never Let Me Go, and Wildlike

Walton Goggins - The Ghoul
