Character Descriptions

Giancarlo Esposito (he/him) as "Leo Pap" - A natural leader, Leo is whip-smart, intense and driven, with an engineer's mind and a meticulous eye for detail. He became a thief at a young age -- and though he had a chance to get out, he couldn't stay away from the criminal life and his relapse cost him his family and his freedom.

Paz Vega (she/her) as "Ava Mercer" - An attorney by day, she is equally at home on a gun range or gallery show as she is in the courtroom. Although she plays things fast and loose, deep down she's a passionate soul who will do anything to protect the few people close to her.

Rufus Sewell (he/him) as "Roger Salas" A former thief who has reinvented himself as a top tier security expert, Roger is a salesman with an uncanny ability to manipulate people to his ends. Loyal, to a point, but his own ambitions and needs will win out every time.

Tati Gabrielle (she/her) as "Hannah Kim" - Intelligent, ambitious, and adaptable, Hannah is a woman who wears many hats - and is driven by far more than money. As a chameleon who flows between the world of high-stakes finance and low-lying crime, she will have to use everything in her bag of tricks to find a way up and out.

Peter Mark Kendall (he/him) as "Stan Loomis" - A small-time smuggler with a big-time passion for life's epicurean pleasures, Stan's got a mouth that never stops running and the heart of a hopeless romantic. Loyal to a fault, he's willing to risk it all for the object of his desire -- even if it means giving up the comfortable life he's built for himself.

Rosaline Elbay (she/her) as "Judy Goodwin" - The crew's demolitions specialist, Judy is headstrong and independent -- an eccentric spitfire with a sarcastic edge who is clever and talented enough to stay a step ahead of her mistakes.

Jai Courtney (he/him) as "Bob Goodwin" - A chest-puffing alpha male with a knack for safecracking and pushing people's buttons, Bob is attractive enough to be a threat and smart enough to be dangerous to anyone who gets in his way when he's on the hunt.

Niousha Noor (she/her) as "Nazan Abassi"- Driven, damaged and tenacious to a fault, FBI Agent Nazan Abassi is the raging fire that threatens to burn our crew of thieves down - as long as those flames don't consume her first.
