The Sparrow Academy highlights the list of new characters introduced for The Umbrella Academy season 3. Here is what you need to know about the fresh crop of crime-fighters.
A TV show introducing some fresh faces is nothing new. Casting turnover is one of the ways that the sarana is able to stay fresh, year after year. Still, there are normal casting tweaks and then there is what The Umbrella Academy is set to do in season 3.
Pemuja of the seri will recall that, at the end of season 2, the Hargreeves children’s time-meddling came back to bite them once again – this time in a particularly spectacular mode. When Luther, Diego, Allison, and company arrived back to the “present” from their journey in 1963 Dallas, they discovered that a whole new kubu crime-fighting kubu was occupying The Umbrella Academy mansion.
Their former father Reginald Hargreeves announced this new kubu as the Sparrow Academy, and it spekd five human silhouettes, one ominous looking cube, and the resurrection of the Umbrellas’ own dearly-departed brother Ben. Suffice it to say, the Sparrow Academy will play a huge role in The Umbrella Academy season 3. They aren’t the only new characters the show is introducing though.
Here is what you need to know about the new cast for The Umbrella Academy season 3.
Justin Cornwell as Marcus Hargreeves (Number One)
Marcus Hargreeves is to the Sparrows what Luther is to the Umbrellas…albeit a touch more respected. Here is Netflix’s description of the character: “A charming, chiseled, colossus. Honest, virtuous, and permintaaning, Marcus keeps the saudara together. Graceful but lethal, calculated but compassionate, he is as smart as he is strong. Marcus is disciplined, rational and in kontrol. He oozes confidence and leadership without ever having to raise his voice.”
Raised in Cleveland, Ohio and Louisville, Kentucky (where he attended the University of Louisville), Justin Cornwell is an actor best known for playing young Jeronicus Jangle in Netflix film Jingle Jangle. He also had a major role in the CBS crime kisah Pelatihan Day, which was cut short after the untimely death of his co-star Bill Paxton.
Justin H. Min as Ben Hargreeves (Number Two)
Yes, Justin H. Min and his character Ben have been a part of The Umbrella Academy since the very beginning. This Ben, however, is different enough to constitute an entirely new character. Here is what Netflix has to say about him: “This is not the sweet Ben we know and love.This Ben is a Machiavellian tactician, wrapped up in a pretty boy bodi with a rumbling inner-squid. Vicious, pragmatic, and hyper-vigilant— Ben is determined to gain his posisi as the leader at all costs.”
Britne Oldford as Fei Hargreeves (Number Three)
Adorned with a pair of enigmatic glasses, Fei has an affinity for ravens. Per Netflix: “Fei sees the world in a special way. She comes across as a misanthrope who would rather be alone than spend even a second with you. But truth be told, Fei wishes she had a friend. Most of the time, Fei is the smartest personal in the room and willing to work things out. But if you cross her there’s no looking back because Fei won’t setop until the job is done.”
Britne Oldford is a Canadian actress who has some TV roles of notes under her belt including: Cadie Campbell on Skins (U.S.), Alma Walker on American Horror Story: Asylum, and Regan on Hunters.
Jake Epstein as Alphonso Hargreeves (Number Four)
Due to the “I am rubber, you are glue” nature of his power, poor Alphonso looks like he has seen better days. The character’s official description reads: “Years of crime fighting have left his face and bodi with countless visual reminders of his battles. To compensate, Alphonso is armed with a caustic and biting sense of komedi. The only thing he likes better than verbally battering anyone foolish enough to get in his face, is a good pizza and a six-pack of beer.”
Like Britne Oldford, Jake Epstein is another Canadian find for The Umbrella Academy, which films in Toronto.

Genesis Rodriguez as Sloane Hargreeves (Number Five)
Number Five’s counterpart on the Sparrow Academy could not be more different. Are we sure Reginald is numbering these kids correctly? Sloane’s description reads: “A romantic and a dreamer who feels a higher cosmic calling leaving her eager to see the world and pengalaman a life beyond her upbringing. But obligations to her saudara keep Sloane tethered to the Academy, as does her fear of crossing the saudara line. But Sloane has plans… and one day she might just be brave enough to act on them.”

She has also provided her voice to animated proyeks like Big Hero 6 and She-Ra and the Princesses of Power.
Cazzie David as Jayme Hargreeves (Number Six)
The Sparrows’ Number Six appears to have more in common with The Umbrellas’ Number Four, Klaus than their Number Six, Ben. Netflix’s breakdown of Jayme Hargreeves reads: “Jayme is a loner hidden under a hoodie. She doesn’t say much because she doesn’t have to. Jayme has a fear-inducing snarl. Catch a glimpse of it, and you’ll run across the street to avoid what follows. Smart and sharp as a knife, she spends most of her time hanging with Alphonso, her only friend.”
