‘The Underground Railroad’: Lily Rabe To Recur On Amazon Series

Exclusive: Lily Rabe (The Wizard Of Lies) is set for a recurring role on Amazon’s The Underground Railroad, Barry Jenkins’ adaptation of Colson Whitehead’s bestselling novel, from Jenkins’ Pastel and Brad Pitt’s Plan B.

The story centers on young Cora, a slave on a cotton plantation in Georgia.

When Caesar, a recent arrival from Virginia, tells her about the Underground Railroad, they decide to take a terrifying risk and escape.

Rabe will play Ethel Wells, Martin’s (Damon Herriman) wife and the mother of their daughter.

Directed by Oscar and Golden Globe Award-winner Barry Jenkins (Moonlight) and based on Colson Whitehead’s Pulitzer Prize-winning and bestselling novel The Underground Railroad, the series is executive produced by Jenkins’ Pastel
