We watched Gentleman Jack cast reuniting for Season 2 on April 25 and Suranne Jones is back on the screens! We realized how we missed watching Jones when she resumed her role as the fourth-wall-breaking Anne Lister. In the Gentleman Jack cast, we will also see Sophie Rundle and Lydia Leonard, who portrays Ann Walker and Marian Lawton, getting their roles back.
In Season 2, it did not take too long for the tragedy to strike. It happened shortly after when Anne’s old romance Lawton made a comeback, pushing Anne into a very weird position considering her current love life. Apparently, Anne and Ann’s romance was put to a test.
Gentleman Jack cast has both old and new faces for us to discover through the 2nd season, and you should look forward to interesting new characters. We were particularly excited about Anne’s crazy former lover Isabella ‘Tib’ Norcliffe (Joanna Scanlan), and Season 2 did not disappoint.
Suranne Jones plays the role of Anne Lister in the Gentleman Jack cast, and she is the strong-willed protagonist, also a nineteenth-century Yorkshire landowner known for challenging the social standards of our day.
Through her diary, we got to know details of her lesbian romances, considerable travel, and refurbishment of Shibden Hall which is her ancestral property and we found her entries extremely amusing. The reason why the show is called Gentleman Jack is because of her and it stuck with her when her neighbors mocked her manly features and interest in women.
Suranne Jones Jones rose to prominence as Karen McDonald on Coronation Street but she is also well known for her performance in Doctor Foster. She is currently 43 years old, born on August 27, 1978, and married to Laurence Akers since 2015.
Sophie Rundle plays the role of Ann Walker in Gentleman Jack cast and she is a rich heiress who was attracted by Lister but not that kind of way of attraction at first. Anne chose Ann because she was wealthy, and she first saw Ann as her opponent.

Gemma Whelan plays the role of Anne’s younger sister Marian in the Gentleman Jack cast. She and Anne have an awkward relationship since she is concerned about the consequences of Anne’s oddities, but you know how siblings are. Marian thinks that Anne is doing a man’s job and she should quit, and also said that Anne always manages to become the focus of every given conversation. Smells jealousy?
