Carrie Coon — star of HBO’s “The Gilded Age” and “The Leftovers” — has joined the growing Season 3 cast of Mike White’s “The White Lotus,” HBO has announced.
Earlier this week, the Emmy-winning HBO series added Parker Posey, Jason Isaacs, Leslie Bibb, Dom Hetrakul, Michelle Monaghan and Tayme Thapthimthong. The whole gang joins Natasha Rothwell, whom Variety exclusively reported would reprise the role of Belinda in Season 3 back in April 2023.
Season 3 of “The White Lotus” will be set in Thailand, as Variety exclusively reported in March. According to HBO, production will start in and around Koh Samui, Phuket, and Bangkok in February.
Rothwell — who was nominated for an Emmy for the show’s first season — recently talked with Vanity Fair about Season 3, and said she’s read all of the scripts. “I gasped out loud a minimum of five times and this was just me reading them,” Rothwell said. “The scripts are a testament to Mike’s skill and ability to tell the most smart and entertaining stories. I mean, everything that he does is like a lesson to me as an actor and a performer. And as a writer myself, he takes folks on a journey. Everyone needs to buckle up, because it’s going to get real!”
On HBO’s “The Gilded Age,” which was recently renewed for a third season, Coon plays the striving Bertha Russell to great effect. She is represented by UTA, Foundation Talent, Narrative and Peikoff Mahan Law.
For the third season of “The White Lotus,” HBO has partnered with the Tourism Authority of Thailand to support the filming and promotion of the third installment.
White created “The White Lotus” and serves as executive producer and director. David Bernad and Mark Kamine also executive produce.
