Meet the cast of Industry: BBC’s new drama about banking grads in the City
You’re going to want to be mates with all of them
The BBC has teamed up with HBO to create a new drama called Industry about a group of graduate investment bankers and the cast list is very cool.
A number of Industry episodes were directed by Lena Dunham and the eight part series follows a group of graduates from their interviews to their first stressful month of working on the trading floor. But it is no way as dull as that sounds.
Industry is full of drugs, sex and a lot of unhealthy competition between the grads. And the actors playing the competitive graduates are relative newcomers alongside a few famous faces that you’ve definitely seen before.
This is everything you need to about the cast of Industry:
Myha’la Herrold – Harper Stern
Myha’la Herrold plays the lead role of Harper Stern. Harper is an American from New York who travels to London in the hope of working for Pierpoint & Co, the banking company in Industry.
