Mina Sundwall Cast As Penny In Netflix’s Lost In Space
The Robinson family have found their last member, as actress Mina Sundwall is cast as middle daughter Penny for Netflix’s Lost In Space reboot.
Sundwall has starred in the movie Freeheld with Julianne Moore, Ellen Page, Michael Shannon & Steve Carell, Maggie’s Plan with Ethan Hawke and popped up in an episode of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.
She joins Toby Stephens (Black Sails) who plays the father & commander John Robinson, Molly Parker (House of Cards) who plays mother & biochemist Maureen Robinson, and Parker Posey (Search Party, Louie) who takes on the role of the scheming Dr. Smith, switched to a female character for this version.
The other two Robinson children are played by Maxwell Jenkins (Sense8) who is portraying the youngest child Will, and Taylor Russell (Falling Skies) will play eldest child Judy. The final member of the crew is Ignacio Serricchio (Bones) who plays Major Don West, pilot of the Jupiter 2 spacecraft.
