The Tourist is likely about to become one of the next big hit shows on Netflix when it starts streaming in February. The first season will debut on February 1 followed by the second season on February 29, marking the first time that season 2 will be available to watch in America and many other countries around the world. Max previously carried the show, but has chosen to dump it, so Netflix swept in and picked up international distribution rights for the BBC One series.

Jamie Dornan is the leading star and character in the show, but The Tourist features a very talented supporting cast. Get to know everyone below.

Jamie Dornan as The Man

Jamie Dornan stars in The Tourist and plays the leading character, who we'll refer to as "The Man," for the sake of spoilers. You'll learn about who he really is as you watch the show, but it's the core mystery so we don't want to ruin it for you before you even begin!

Dornan's biggest claim to fame so far is probably playing Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades of Grey franchise alongside Dakota Johnson, but since then he has really diversified his resume with lots of exciting projects ranging from serious dramas to action to comedy and everything in between. Some of his other popular shows and movies include Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar, The Fall, A Private War, Heart of Stone, A Haunting in Venice, and Wild Mountain Thyme.

Shalom Brune-Franklin as Luci Miller

Luci Miller is one of the first people that The Man meets after he wakes up and starts trying to piece together what happened to him. She helps him out of a cafe shortly before a bomb goes off and later acts somewhat suspiciously around him, suggesting she might have something to hide. Australian actress Shalom Brune-Franklin plays Luci and is best known for starring in the BBC series Our Girl. She also starred as Estella in the BBC One adaptation of Great Expectations and will next appear in the Max series Dune: Prophecy.

Danielle Macdonald as Helen Chambers

Danielle Macdonald is another Aussie native starring in the series as Constable Helen Chambers. It doesn't take long for Helen to cross paths with The Man, which causes strain in her relationship as her fiancé seems to lament her working and would rather her stay home and spend time with him. Macdonald's most notable roles outside of The Tourist include the drama film Patti Cake$ and the Netflix Originals Unbelievable, Dumplin', and Bird Box. In 2023, she also guest starred in an episode Poker Face.

Greg Larsen Ethan Krum

Speaking of Helen and her fiancé, comedian Greg Larsen actually plays her significant other Ethan Krum. Like the majority of the cast, Greg is an Australian and he has a background in acting, writing, and comedy. He has won several awards for his stand-up comedy routines, particularly at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. The Tourist is his most notable acting role to date.

Victoria Haralabidou as Lena Pascal

Greek actress Victoria Haralabidou plays Lena Pascal, a character that enters the picture a bit later into the season. She also becomes an important part of The Tourist season 2. Most of her projects have been Australian series such as The Secrets She Keeps, Wakefield, and The Tailings. She also had a recurring role in the HBO show The Leftovers and she starred in the 2021 movie The Drover's Wife.
