The mysterious Mr. Wilford has been revealed! Below is a first look at Sean Bean as Mr. Wilford in TNT’s Snowpiercer series. What chaos will he and Melanie Cavill’s daughter Alexandra (Rowan Blanchard) bring in the second season?
Set more than seven years after the world has become a frozen wasteland, Snowpiercer
centers on the remnants of humanity who inhabit a perpetually moving train, with 1001 cars, that circles the globe.
Class warfare, social injustice and the politics of survival play out in this riveting television adaptation based on the critically-acclaimed graphic novel series and the film from Oscar winner Bong Joon Ho (Parasite).
Snowpiercer stars Oscar winner Jennifer Connelly (A Beautiful Mind), Grammy and Tony Award winner Daveed Diggs (Hamilton, black-ish), Emmy nominee Alison Wright (The Americans), Mickey Sumner (Frances Ha, Battle of the Sexes), Susan Park (Ghostbusters), and Iddo Goldberg (Peaky Blinders, The Zookeeper’s Wife).

The Snowpiercer TV show is produced by Tomorrow Studios (a joint venture between Marty Adelstein and ITV Studios), along with CJ Entertainment, who produced the original film.
The series is executive produced by Tomorrow Studios’ Marty Adelstein (Cowboy Bebop, Hanna, Prison Break) and Becky Clements (Good Behavior, Aquarius, Last Man Standing); showrunner Graeme Manson (Orphan Black), who wrote the first episode; director James Hawes (The Alienist, Black Mirror); Matthew O’Connor (Continuum, Tin Man); Scott Derrickson (Sinister, Doctor Strange), and the original film’s producers Bong Joon Ho, Miky Lee, Tae-sung Jeong, Park Chan-wook, Lee Tae-hun and Dooho Choi.
