For those less familiar with Henry James, Bly Manor is an estate plucked from the pages of his novella The Turn of the Screw which follows the story of a governess who is charged to care for two young children on the remote English countryside.

T’nia Miller will portray Hannah Grose, the manager of Bly Manor. Plucked from the pages of James’s novella, this new interpretation of the character Ms. Grose will no doubt play an integral role in the story as she did in The Turn of the Screw.

Henry Thomas, who played a young Hugh Crain in Hill House, returns to The Haunting Universe as Henry Wingrave. He’ll play Miles and Flora’s uncle Henry Wingrave. While the character was unnamed in The Turn of the Screw, the surname of Thomas’ character could be inspired by Henry James’s other famous ghost story Owen Wingrave.

Remembered for her role as Nell Crain (or Bent Neck Lady) in Hill House, Victoria Pedretti returns as Dani, a tutor who is hired to care for and teach Bly Manor’s Miles and Flora. But will her decision to work at the countryside locale backfire?

Oliver Jackson-Cohen will play Peter Quint, a character that existed in The Turn of the Screw. Whether or not Haunting‘s version of the estate employee will be the same as Henry James’s iteration remains to be seen, but the actor did tease a little about his role in a casting announcement video. According to Jackson-Cohen, Peter “is a charming young man who lives at Bly… he makes life difficult for everyone there.”

Seen here with Amelie Smith as Flora, Tahirah Sharif will portray Rebecca Jessel, a woman who filled the same position that Dani accepts at Bly Manor. Her fate will play a major role within the series if she’s anything like the Miss Jessel from James’s writing.
