Netflix’s The Sandman scores GOT, Star Wars actress

Gwendoline Christie will be joining Tom Sturridge (who’s playing the central character Dream/Morpheus) in Netflix’s The Sandman. While we don’t yet know which character Christie will be playing, traditional wisdom would point to one of the books’ primary Endless femmes Death or Desire. And as neither of those characters have been cast, Christie could well be portraying either.

Based on appearance alone, Death would probably be the harder sell for Christie. Famously inspired by the late-great Goth queen Cinamon Hadley, the character was a bit revolutionary when The Sandman was released, as it was one of the first depictions of Death that wasn’t a skeletal being shrouded in a cloak, instead appearing as a waifish, young woman with gothy punk rock flair. While Christie could certainly carry the attitude, her impressive, amazonian figure might not fit with how the character has thus far been conceptualized.

Assuming Christie is not The Sandman‘s Death, she may indeed be appearing as Desire, whose androgyny might better suit the actor’s physicality and overall screen presence. More than that, it would be an absolute delight to see Christie breathing playful life into the fickle, antagonistic, often self-serving shenanigans Desire typically brings to The Sandman narrative.

But if you’ll allow us to do a little, ahem, devil’s advocating here, we can’t help but think Christie would absolutely slay as The Sandman‘s infamously pretty, blonde baddie, Lucifer Morningstar. The character was, of course, penned as a male in Gaiman’s original books, as he has been in the television series Lucifer, which is also a Netflix production these days. But to be completely frank, the thought of an immaculately-suited Christie delivering Lucifer’s lines from The Sandman is frighteningly intriguing — and Gaiman may be game for such out-of-the-box casting. Here’s hoping that casting twist soon becomes a reality.
