Ella Purnell stars as Lucy, a resident of Vault 33, which exists where Los Angeles used to be. She’s lovingly naive and inexperienced but fiercely determined to do what she must after venturing outside into the surface world for the first time.

In a press release for the series, Purnell shared that the character was first described to her as "someone who would star in a toothpaste commercial but could also kill you:"

"When I met with Jonah, Geneva, and Graham, and they explained their approach to the world, the game, and then the character – she's basically someone who would star in a toothpaste commercial but could also kill you, I was like, 'I'm in. I am 100 percent in. Sign me up…' They described her as a Leslie Knope/Ned Flanders-type, but with something kind of dangerous lurking there. I felt like, 'Okay, I could do this.'"

Purnell is most well known for her time on Arcane as Jinx and Jackie in Yellowjackets. She also starred in the series Sweetbitter.

Aaron Moten - Maximus

Aaron Moten’s Maximus presents another key perspective of the narrative as a member of the Brotherhood of Steel. When he was only a child, he just barely survived his own set of tragic circumstances that led him right into the Brotherhood’s arms.

It’s through his story that fans get to see the iconic power armor come to life.

In a press release for the series, while praising the script as "rigidly detailed," Moten noted how he hopes Maximus is someone "a lot of people hopefully find relatable:"

"The script is so rigidly detailed, I was filled with joy to be reading something that I've never seen before... Maximus is a person who I think a lot of people hopefully find relatable; I do myself. He's struggling with these ideals in his head. There's a pure force driving him in his desire to help people, but he's caught in-between in this world of wanting to do the honorable thing, but knowing that to reach some status or glory requires action by any means necessary – especially in a world like the Wasteland where you're often put at odds of kill or be killed."

The actor also starred in the television shows Next and Disjointed along with an appearance in Will Smith's Emancipation.

Walton Goggins - The Ghoul/Cooper Howard

The last important perspective for the show comes in the form of Walton Goggins’ The Ghoul, who has been around for hundreds of years and is now a well-experienced bounty hunter.

Before the bombs fell, The Ghoul was known as Cooper Howard, a famous motion picture star who formed a unique connection to the infamous company known as Vault-Tec.

While speaking in a press release, the actor teased that he has never played a character as badass as The Ghoul, and he "had never played someone like Cooper Howard:"

"I've played a lot of bad-asses over the course of my career, none as badass as The Ghoul... He's a pretty intimidating guy, but I had never played someone like Cooper Howard, so I watched a lot of Gary Cooper, a lot of John Wayne, a lot of Gunsmoke, and I watched a lot of interviews... The video that we have from that time, people that populated the screen were well-spoken and gregarious but also reserved and a little conservative, not just politically, but just the way in which they expressed themselves; they were regal. And I thought, 'Okay, yeah, that's Cooper. He's part of the greatest generation."

Goggins has had a long and fruitful career, including starring roles in Justified, Invincible, The Righteous Gemstones, Ant-Man and the Wasp, and more.

Moises Arias - Norm
