Dune: Prophecy Cast Adds Jessica Barden & Succession Actress

According to Variety, Max’s Dune: Prophecy series has officially enlisted two new cast members for the forthcoming sci-fi prequel, which is expected to debut sometime this year.

The End of the F—ing World star Jessica Barden and Succession alum Jihae have been cast to portray the respective recurring roles of young Valya Harkonnen and Reverend Mother Kasha in Dune: Prophecy. An older version of Barden’s character will be played by Emily Watson.

Listed below are their full character descriptions:

  • Barden’s Valya Harkonnen is ambitious, stubborn, and forceful. She dreams of restoring her family’s noble status. When a tragedy shatters her plans for the future, she finds herself on a new path that leads to the Sisterhood.

  • Jihae’s Reverend Mother Kasha is the Emperor’s own Truthsayer and confidant. She occupies a position of great influence in the Imperium. But when a new challenge leads her to question the Sisterhood’s intentions, she finds her role increasingly difficult to navigate.
