Heartstopper Season 1: Know the Cast
Oseman says “Heartstopper” is very close to his heart, so deeply that he wanted the cast to be as he envisioned it.
The casting call saw no less than 10,000 auditions, although it was very difficult to select, it is fortunate that Kit and Joe have been finalized. “Rocketman” fans will remember how brilliantly Kit portrayed young Elton John in the biopic. Joe, however, is a novice.
The cast also includes Yasmin Finney, William Gao, Corinna Brown, Kizzy Edgell, Cormac Hyde-Corrin, Tobie Donovan and Rhea Norwood.
