Many news stories have been spreading about Marvel’s Moon Knight cast members since the show lost one of its main actors, Gaspard Ulliel, at the beginning of this year. Not only for having stellar names like Oscar Isaac and Ethan Hawke for the lead roles but also for the positive reviews Moon Knight has received, the show already made a good name for itself. The series has an 86% of rating on Rotten Tomatoes, rated by a total of 122 critics.
The show is about a mercenary (Oscar Isaac) called Marc Spector (also Moon Knight) who has a dissociative identity disorder. He becomes the avatar (a deity in a bodily form) of the Egyptian moon god Khonshu. The series currently has 2 released episodes. The 1st episode was released on Disney+ on the 30th of March, and the 2nd one on the 6th of April. The remaining 4 episodes (we know, a disappointingly quite short season) will also be released weekly. The last episode of the season will be on Disney+ on May 4.
The main cast member of the series is Oscar Isaac who plays Marc Spector /Moon Knight and his other personalities. Marc Spector is a Jewish-American mercenary and one of his personalities is Steven Grant, a British gift shop employee. So, Isaac not only plays different characters, but he also uses different accents when he is playing these personalities.
The Guatemalan-American actor is 43 years old and (sorry ladies) is married to Elvira Lind, a Danish screenwriter/director, since 2017. The couple even has 2 children together.
The tragic news came on January 18 from the French Press about Gaspard Ulliel when the actor was critically injured at a ski resort after colliding with another skier. When the helicopters arrived to take him to the hospital, he was already brain dead… The reason for his sudden death has been talked about a lot in the French media, especially considering Ulliel was not wearing any helmet while he was skiing. However, the person he collided with was wearing a helmet and nothing happened to him.
Ulliel played Anton Mogart / Midnight Man in the series. He is a criminal who steals art treasures and valuable original works. The reason he is called “Midnight Man” is that he always strucks at midnight.
The actor was in a relationship with Gaëlle Pietri for 7 years, from 2013 to 2020. The couple had 1 child together.
Ethan Hawke plays the bad guy of the movie, Arthur Horrow, who is the enemy of Moon Knight as he sees him as an obstacle to his greater purposes. Hawke (51) is currently in a marriage with Ryan Shawhughes. The couple has been married since 2008. Before that, the actor was in a 7-year-long marriage with Uma Thurman, with whom he has 2 children, one of them being Maya Hawke (Stranger Things‘ Robin). The rumor has it that Ryan actually was a nanny to Thurman and Hawke’s children before the couple divorced although Hawke denied any connection between Ryan and the end of his marriage.

May Calamawy plays Layla El-Faouly, Moon Knight’s wife who is an archaeologist and an adventurer. She is a 35-year-old actress born in Bahrain to an Egyptian father and a Palestinian mother. Unfortunately, we couldn’t get a single hit about whether the actress has a partner or not as she is not that active on social media.
Loic Mabanza’s role is actually not known yet. He will probably appear in one or more remaining episodes of the season. He is a 32-year-old French actor, dancer, and choreographer, most famously known for playing in Jay-Z’s music video “MaNyfaCedGod“. All we know about his relationship status is that he is unmarried. He doesn’t share anything about his dating life on Instagram.
F. Murray Abraham
Abraham is the voice of Khanshu in the series. He is only voice acting so we do not see his face in the show. He is 82 years old and has been in a marriage with his spouse Kate Hannan since 1962, yeah that’s right, 1962. They have 2 children.
