They are hardass Louisa Drake (Kate Marie Davies, Deadman Apocalypse), new medic Lara Kemp (Alicia Ancel, The Anarchist’s Birthday), Andree Chevalier (Marianne Constans), Alessa Carlotta (Carmen Gabriele, Le ombre degli angeli) and the man that has too much fun, Jax (Michael Morris, Two in the Bush Comedy Show).
