I Came By, a recent Netflix thriller, is already in the Top 10 of the platform’s most-streamed movies of the previous week (August 29 – September 4). The film is centered around a young graffiti artist named Toby, who is murdered by a wealthy judge and Toby’s mother and friend, seeking to take revenge. The thriller brings together an incredible cast, from former Downton Abbey (2010-2015) star Hugh Bonneville to the rising star George MacKay, whose leading role in 1917 (2019) is still on everyone’s minds. Here is everything you need to know about the I Came By cast, from their previous roles to details of their personal lives.
MacKay plays Toby, a politically-minded young man who breaks into houses of upper-class individuals, leaving a message on the walls with graffiti that says “I Came By.” As mentioned above, MacKay gained recognition for his role in the Sam Mendes movie 1917, but he began his career, long before, as a child actor in Peter Pan (2003). He played in the films Captain Fantastic (2016), Marrowbone (2017), Ophelia (2018), and Wolf (2021). MacKay is 30 years old and is said to be dating Doone Forsyth, a makeup artist whom he met on the set of 1917.
Kelly Macdonald portrays Toby’s widowed mother, Lizzie. Lizzie worries about his son’s lack of direction in life and throws him out of the house. Macdonald is a 46-years-old Scottish actress known for many critically acclaimed performances. She starred in No Country for Old Men (2007), The Girl in the Cafe (2005), and in 5 seasons of Boardwalk Empire (2010-2014). She used to be married to Dougie Payne, a Scottish musician, from 2003 to 2017. They have 2 children. She keeps her dating life pretty secretive so whether she is with anyone else remains a mystery.
The cast of I Came By also includes Hugh Bonneville, who plays a retired judge named Hector Blake. Many people know Bonneville from his iconic role as Robert Crawley in the Downton Abbey series and movies. He also had a supporting role in the 1999 romantic comedy Notting Hill.
