The cast for NBC's Aquarius is beginning to fill out as the network announced the casting of Game of Thrones' actor Gethin Anthony in a lead role opposite David Duchovny.
Anthony will play a young Charles Manson in the event series, set in the 1960s, according to a rep who spoke with TVLine. Grey Damon (Friday Night Lights) and Emma Dumont (Bunheads) also were cast.
Dumont will play a young woman entranced by Mansion, who is seeking to find people for his cult, that goes missing, while Damon is Duchovny's new partner. The X-Files alum was cast first to play Det. Hodiak, who is investigating Manson.
As previously reported, while investigating Manson Hodiak and his partner go undercover after Dumont's character goes missing.
In addition to starring in the 13-episode series, Duchovny will executive produce, alongside Melanie Greene, Marty Adelstein and John McNamara.
"Event series are a big priority for us," NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke said back in March. "And the combination of a show that charts the lead-up to the Manson murders with a television star of the magnitude of David Duchovny, is the very definition of an event."
