Who is in BBC’s Industry and what else have they been in? Everything you need to know about Harry Lawtey, Myha’la Herrold and Freya Mavor.
If you’re looking for something to binge watch this winter, the BBC has teamed up with HBO to create brand new drama, Industry.
The eight-part series follows a group of cut throat graduate investment bankers at Pierpoint & Co, with a number of episodes directed by Lena Dunham.
And while viewers might recognise some of the cast, many of the actors are relatively new to acting. So, let’s find out more about them…

Harry Lawtey plays another graduate trainee called Robert Spearing who craves the attention of one particular “dinosaur” colleague.
He previously played Maurice in The Letter to the King, and has also had roles in Marcella, Casualty, City of Tiny Lights and Chuggington.
Actor David Jonsson is joining the Industry cast as Gus Sackey who graduated from Eton and Oxford.
