The adult Lottie of Yellowjackets is located by Obi-Wan Kenobi’s Simone Kessell.
The actor will appear in season two as the character who is all grown up and inexplicably foresighted played by Courtney Eaton.
This article contains some first-season spoilers for the television show Yellowjackets because of the way the show’s casting was done. Proceed with caution!]
She is alive! The Antler Queen herself, Lottie, a Yellowjackets character who was only introduced as an adolescent in season one, will undoubtedly have an adult equivalent. Simone Kessell, who played Obi-Wan Kenobi, will reenact the role played by Courtney Eaton as a teen as an adult.
Using the official Yellowjackets Twitter, the Showtime drama teased fans with a message that read, “Fine we’ll cave. ” It also included a meme showing someone slipping cash over a table in exchange for information on adult Lottie. Lottie became a fan favorite and was elevated to series regular in season two as a result of the character’s manic transformation from a nervous, wispy creative to a clairvoyant, lusty cannibal in the previous season.
Kessell, a native of New Zealand, has recently experienced success on tiny screens. In addition to playing Princess Leia’s mother Breha Organa in Obi-Wan Kenobi, she also has two episode credits on the outstanding first season of Our Flag Meets Death. She is the second new cast member to join Yellowjackets’ 40+ generation after Lauren Ambrose from Six Feet Under was confirmed to return as adult Van (further spoiler warning here!).
The first season of Yellowjackets has received high praise from critics since it ended on January 16 and, according to Deadline, was the second-most streamed program in Showtime’s history. Seven prizes, including Outstanding Drama Series, Outstanding Lead Actress for Melanie Lynskey, and Outstanding Supporting Actress for Christina Ricci, are currently up for grabs in this year’s Emmys.
Production is apparently planned to begin on August 30, even though a second-season start date still appears as far off as the remaining soccer players’ escape from Canada. Just keep putting those finishing touches on till then.
