Millie Bobby Brown investigates weird events in the second part of this detective film series.
Sherlock Holmes is one of the most well-known detective series in the world, but recently another Holmes has been gracing our screens. Enola Holmes debuted on Netflix in 2020 and instantly became a spectator favorite. Enola Holmes, the younger sister of Sherlock Holmes and a promising detective in her own right, is portrayed by Millie Bobby Brown in the film. Soon, audiences will be able to enjoy more of the mystery, whimsy, and suspense that made the original movie so captivating. The second season of Enola Holmes will release on Netflix on November 4, 2022. Enola Holmes 2 will feature a cast of eccentric detectives and mystery fans, so it’s time for viewers to refresh their memories and check out the returning and new cast members.
Millie Bobby Brown as Enola Holmes
Enola Holmes is the youngest member of the Holmes family, but she has the boldest personality. She is the younger sister of the stick-in-the-mud Mycroft and the world-famous detective Sherlock, and she breaches social norms without blinking an eye. Her eccentric, strong-willed personality was fostered and nourished by her mother, Eudora. In the first Enola Holmes film, Enola embarks on a mission to locate her mother, who disappeared after becoming engaged with an underground feminist organization. When she meets the youthful Lord Tewkesbury, she becomes enmeshed in a House of Lords and Reform Bill-related government conspiracy. She becomes interested in becoming a detective after solving the case. Enola Holmes 2 features a more mature, wiser, though still eccentric young woman attempting to emerge from her brother’s shadow. She recently opened her own detective firm, but she is still seeking her big break. When a mysterious young woman requests her assistance in locating a missing person, the case quickly reveals ties that go beyond a simple missing person and appear to be related to a case that has her brother baffled. Could this be her opportunity to demonstrate that Sherlock is not the only detective capable of solving the world’s most challenging mysteries?
Millie Bobby Brown will reprise the role of Enola Holmes. For quite some time, the British actress has been a household name. Brown’s breakthrough role came in 2016 with the premiere of Stranger Things on Netflix, in which she portrayed Eleven, a young girl with unusual skills. She has since appeared in Godzilla: King of Monsters and Godzilla vs. Kong for the Godzilla franchise. Brown, who is only 18 years old, is one of the most recognizable young stars in the world.
Henry Cavill as Sherlock Holmes
Sherlock Holmes requires little introduction: he is London’s most renowned detective and has earned a reputation as the world’s foremost mystery solver. As readers may have guessed, the focus of this narrative is Enola, Sherlock’s younger sister, and aspiring investigator. This time around, Sherlock is researching his mystery, although the trailer suggests it may be related to Enola’s. It will be interesting to observe how the two approach their detective job; there may even be some friendly or unfriendly sibling rivalry.
Henry Cavill appears to have an aptitude for portraying larger-than-life characters. He is best known for portraying Superman in the DC Extended Universe, beginning with Man of Steel and continuing through Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Justice League, and most recently, Black Adam. Cavill imbues Sherlock with a degree of stoicism, compassion, and emotional depth that humanizes the character. Other films in which Cavill has appeared are The Count of Monte Cristo, Tristan & Isolde, and Stardust. Caville’s television appearances include The Tudors and The Witcher, a Netflix fantasy series in which he plays a starring character.
Helena Bonham Carter as Eudoria Holmes
The secretive and intelligent mother of Enola Holmes is Eudora Holmes. Like all of her children, she has an aptitude for solving problems. Eudora has been instrumental in Enola’s upbringing and has pushed her to pursue interests as diverse as jujitsu and chess. In the first film, Eudoria’s absence serves as the adventure’s impetus. Enola gradually discovers that Eudora is a member of a group of feminist rebels attempting to bring about social change. Fans are left wondering what role Eudora will have in the future. After some time on the run, mother and children could perhaps reunite.
Some may recognize Helena Bonham Carter as the queen of quirky personalities. She has garnered various awards for her acting, including a BAFTA Award, a Critics’ Choice Movie Award, an International Emmy Award, and three Screen Actors Guild Awards. Her significant collaborations with Tim Burton include The Corpse Bride, Sweeney Todd, and Alice in Wonderland, all of which are considered classics. She had major roles in the Harry Potter franchise and the cinematic adaption of Les Misérables. She is the ideal actor to portray Eudora, whose gothic home, alternative interests, and women’s movement political leanings make her a historical anomaly.
Louis Partridge as Viscount Tewkesbury
In the first episode of the Enola Holmes franchise, Lord Tewkesbury is introduced quite early on. After encountering Enola as a runaway, he is a young lord and a possible romantic interest. Tewkesbury plays a pivotal role as a young, progressive lord in Parliament and casts the deciding vote in the Reform Bill deadlock procedures at the heart of the mystery in the first film. In the second film, Tewkesbury may assist Enola once more, and the trailer hints at a budding romance between the two characters.
Louis Partridge plays the lovely Tewkesbury. Partridge is a young English actor whose career trajectory appears to be ascending. Partridge first appeared in tiny roles in the short films Beneath Water and About a Dog, but it was his performance in the historical drama Medici that brought him greater recognition. His role in Enola Holmes propelled him to prominence. Since then, he has portrayed the iconic bassist of the Sex Pistols, Sid Vicious, on the television series Pistol.
Susan Wokoma as Edith
Edith appears to be an ordinary teahouse proprietor with a charming disposition to outsiders. This does not betray the fact that Edith’s teahouse is a front. Inside is a martial arts training facility for ladies wishing to enhance their skills. Edith is a powerful woman in terms of physical prowess, mental prowess, and aspirations for the world to train other women to effect social change. It is unknown how she will fit into the plot of Enola Holmes 2, but perhaps we will see her put her martial arts skills to the test.
Susan Wokoma has the role of Edith. Wokoma may be best recognized for her appearance in the horror-comedy television series Crazyhead. Viewers may also recognize her from Phoebe Waller-written Bridge’s and produced British comedy Crashing.
Adeel Akhtar as Lestrade
Lestrade is a Scotland Yard detective. He is loyal to his duties and has a reasonably strong sense of justice, but his reluctance to think beyond the box frequently puts him behind Holmes. As the Holmes siblings go on their next journey, he will almost certainly follow closely behind. Adeel Akhtar portrays Lestrade. As Smee in Pan and Maroush in The Dictator, Akhtar has portrayed various people who frequently serve as foils to more eccentric leaders. As Shahzad in the BBC drama Murdered by My Father, he is the first non-white actor to win the BAFTA award for Lead Actor.
In addition to these returning cast members, we also know that David Thewlis will be in the picture. Thewlis played Hogwarts professor and amiable werewolf Remus Lupin in the Harry Potter film series. Fans of a specific age may recall him for this character. Thewlis plays a prominent role in recent performances in the Netflix series The Sandman. Hannah Dodd, who is known for her part in the Hulu series Find Me in Paris and will join the cast of the Netflix period drama Bridgerton in its third season, is another performer whose name has been announced but whose role is unknown. Sharon Duncan-Brewster (Dune) has also been cast in a part that has not yet been disclosed.
